Homeless people imagined sleeping in New York’s overcrowded Penn and Grand Central train stations

The scenes at Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station in New York are depicted in an apparent homeless crisis that allegedly makes the lives of commuters and tourists a misery.

Images show displaced Americans trying to sleep on floors and even trash cans while travelers and business people continue their daily lives, while other photos taken this weekend discreetly show them on benches and dining tables in dining rooms.

But some pictures show panhandlers begging for money while people run to catch trains or stop to catch refreshments, and allegedly scared people using the Midtown Manhattan stations.

CBS previously reported that at 5.30 p.m. the Grand Central Station ‘becomes a homeless shelter’ and potential customers are afraid to visit companies.

The Saturday scene showed people without a house parts of the dining rooms to rest with their belongings. A sign says ‘grab a chair and enjoy’.

Others were seen around an area with a sink and a water fountain or walk past the lost and found area of ​​clothing.

On Saturday, countless police officers were seen bringing people after it was reported that the Bowery Residents Committee had temporarily closed its outreach office at Penn Station after even members of the group were hired to work with homeless people who could no longer cope.

Members said they had received a threat from a well-known homeless man who was supposed to have threatened office staff when he was told to leave.

Eugene Watts reportedly replied by saying: “I’m leaving, but I’m going back with a gun and shooting you.”

Watts denied that he was making the threat.

An Amtrak spokesperson, who concludes a contract with the BRC for his outreach services, said the office has since reopened, but had no additional information.

In the meantime, the station is increasingly flooded with homeless people.

“You see people who are barefoot. People throw ice in here. I have literally seen people poop in front of the store here, “says Cesar Rodriguez, who manages a Verizon store at the terminal, reports the New York Post.

Even former New York City police chief Bill Bratton went to Twitter to point out the increasing problem in the terminal, noting that this was happening before the outreach program closed its doors.

“People always sleep on the floor, everywhere on the station,” he wrote in the social media post.

An audit of July 2019 by the New York State Comptroller office revealed that the non-profitable BRC had not met the requirements of its contract.

The report noted that executives spent 26 percent of their time on actual reach, and the rest in the office, the New York Post reports.

Rosenblatt said the BRC is experiencing difficulties in carrying out its mission at the station.

“Homelessness is a challenge for the person experiencing it,” he said. “It’s a challenge for those of us who are trying to help people. It’s a challenge for the people who use Penn Station to travel and shop ‘.

However, homeless people complained that the BRC was not doing enough work to support them.

The program is supported by funding from Amtrak and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, or MTA, which operates New York local and express bus, subway and commuter rail services.
