Homelessness in New York City

New Yorker staff writer Ian Frazier and Mary Brosnahan, president of Coalition for the Homeless, discuss why New York has more homeless now than it had for decades, what life is like for many of the homeless families in the city, and what the new mayor should do to address the problem. Frazier’s article “Hidden City” appeared in the October 28 issue of The New Yorker.
