Opening Hearts to the Homeless
We talked about the issue of NIMBY attitudes in our Manhattan Upper West Side neighborhood and the lack of mayoral leadership in solving the problem of homelessness -- with NYC District 6 Council person Helen Rosenthal, Corinne Lowe, co-founder of UWS Open Hearts, Joshua Parkin, founder of helpNYC, and Da Homeless Hero, a sheltered resident of the Lucerne Hotel.
This is the first in a series of BCR conversations addressing the issue of homelessness in our neighborhood -- with politicians, spiritual and mental health experts, sociologists, UWS neighbors, and the men and women who are living without permanent shelter. It is our goal to raise awareness of the problem and of finding humane solutions that work for the entire community.
