When someone writes something, it is unclear who they are refering too. Perhaps Brooklyn Bridge can be more open.

What you are seeing is a lack of help for homeless people. To be honest, if I was on the streets I might turn to something to make it more bearable. Don't judge people going through hard times. Yes, some refuse help and are not interested in getting off the streets but that is a small minority. The police only "move them on". To where? How does that help? Push them to another area so it is ...

First, I never stated that those that appear homeless are druggies or alcoholics. And I would think that if they are in the bandstand all day and night one can safely assume they are homeless.  Yes, I agree that more should be done for those that are homeless. Suggest you read the post again.

How can you tell if a homeless person is a druggie or a alchoholic or how can you tell if a person is homeless?

Maybe it would help if the homeless had somewhere to go. Not all homeless people are druggies or alcoholics some have been through a time in their life that most of us have been lucky enough not ...

Now that the summer season is over it's good to see that the bandstand is finally being used. Albeit that some have made the bandstand home.  For most of the day their belongings are there some of which hangs on a nail, it's always good to have somewhere to hang your coat after a hard day.  If they are truly homeless where do they go during the day, some go to church and it's not to pray. It's for ...
