While Good Times Roll For Many In Manhattan, Hundreds Gather Every Night In Downtown Parking Lot For Free Food
Hundreds of people wait online every night in a rat infested parking lot next door to our halls of justice in downtown Manhattan for a meal consisting of a bowl of soup, piece of bread, carton of milk and an orange. The food is delivered by Coalition for the Homeless, and arrives every evening in white van around 8:30pm. The majority of those served are the elderly and women and children.
