"I have noticed a woman lately who is living in the old entrance to the Wilson Donut Shop in the Wilson L station near 4620 Broadway. These are the same storefronts that should be marketed by Jones Lang LaSalle and filled with retail but instead are filled with homeless residents (and feces in the storefront north of Popeyes). I called 911 for a well-being check yesterday but but she is still there. I hope that one of the many social service agencies in Uptown can give this woman the services she needs."
A reader sends us this photo (above) and info (update):
"I noticed this person setting up camp in the doorway of an empty storefront of the newly renovated Uptown Broadway building. I called 911 and an officer responded within 5 minutes (that's the good part). The policeman, older, 3 stripes on his uniform, vehicle #6308, raised the campers umbrella, said something, got back in his vehicle and left. That was 30 minutes ago. The camper remains, snug as a bug, out of the elements. If the police don't help, where do we go from here?"
