Homeless New Yorkers will face an even more threatening and dangerous situation when the city shuts down the subway system from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m., according to advocates. The shutdown was announced by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio in a joint press conference on Thursday. Cuomo said closing the subway for those hours would allow the cars to be sanitized every 24 hours during the novel coronavirus pandemic. De Blasio said that it would also benefit any homeless people who ride the subway during that time. "If you're not going back and forth all

Yeah right. Because the trains should run 24 hours/day just so the homeless have a place to hang out.

House them on Rikers Island - I understand there are some newly created vacancies. In all seriousness, using the subways as a means of housing the homeless is akin to say using public libraries as "temporary" housing. The inability of Dem mayors to address the issue has wrecked the public library system in this country (mostly urban areas, but I've seen it creep into our town of 12K). It is a lot cheaper to build/rent shelters than use libraries and subway systems as a band aid approach. Frankly in our governments (all levels) should start building mental institutions and treating/housing those in need. A lot of homelessness could be solved with that approach and a lot of prison/jail space could be opened up, since a large percentage of our prison population are repeat offenders have mental and/or addiction issues. Sorry for the long post, this issue makes me crazy.

Enough. Nobody has the right to monopolize our public spaces with self-indulgent indolence and self-destructive insanity. At a time when healthy, sane people are being forcibly confined to quarters, it is insane that free range lunatics are allowed to sleep on our subways. The so-called homeless are either lazy people who have given up on life or crazy people who refuse treatment. Take them out. All of them. Out of the subways. Out of the cities. "Socially isolate" them until we can work out which is which. Confine the crazy until we can remand each one into the custody of a named volunteer who is both empowered and legally enjoined to keep them off the street. Start by encouraging extant family to take custody but, failing that, tell all the so-called "homeless advocates" they are next in line. Assign one to Joshua Goldfein, "staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society...that launched the Homeless Rights Project." If he refuses custody of his "homeless" person, tell him "now you know how the rest of us feel." P.S. I see I forgot to say what happens to the lazy people we picked up above. It's because I don't care. Maybe they walk back. Maybe they never do. Either way, we're better off.

Not that the subway I am sure doesn't need a good scrub but seriously germ theory seems to elude officials. Many of the homeless probably have this virus and are asymptomatic so the moment they shuffle back on the trains and lay down for a good snooze, the train is a petri dish on rails again. Now if you cleaned the trains and removed the homeless that live in them too = progress!

FTA: ''...the homeless who have few safe shelter options, advocates say.'' Just who do we have to thank for that? Hint: Starts with a capital ''D'' Whose idea is it that mentally ill people, drug addicts, and destitute people should live on the streets, with no sanitation, shelter, food, or medical care? See hint above!

If you look up the definition of subway in the dictionary, it says nothing about being a place where homeless people live, urinate and defecate. Same for the word library. If there are not adequate places for the homeless to live, build them. Leave the library for reading books (not online porn) and the subway for transportation.

The homeless shelters have been divided up amongst the drug gangs. They use them as a base of operations. The homeless are afraid to stay their, because they will be assaulted. Giuliani and Bloomberg both used nuisance crimes to keep these people locked up and medicated as required. The reduction of incarceration and the increase of homelessness are highly correlated.

Why did the dopey duo wait so long to take this common sense and surely life saving action to sanitize the petri dishes every day? How many lives were lost as a result of New Yorkers being at high risk by riding these virus contaminated subways? Did it really take this long for da mayor and da gov to figure this out? And how about the NYC busses and taxis? These two bozos need to be held accountable.

Public libraries nationwide serve as lounges for the homeless, even allowing eating inside and bathing in the sinks, thanks to warped notions of personal liberty. So why not subways, which add in changing scenery while the vagrants ride our their highs or drunks?

Take the homeless and do what was done long ago, drive them to the edge of town and unload them there. Sorry, I don't think we should cater to these bums. If there are mentally ill, then put them in institutions, with locks on the doors and bars on the windows. The rest, roust them and keep them from bothering working people.

#3, there once were mental hospitals where the mentally ill were housed. The dems closed them and turned the inmates loose on the rest of us, with the results we see today. #s 6 and 167. Why do you want to send the homeless to the countryside and foist your problems on us? Those people are the cities' problem, not ours. Solve them yourselves instead of trying to pass it on to us. We have our own problems and don't need yours!

#17, in past times, bums found unused land, often railroad right of way near a river, and spent some time there, out of sight, out of the way, and had to occasionally work for a meal. As to the "edge of town" that is still in the city in most case, just where the density is low, and they can find a nice bridge or rail underpass to infest. I live about 15 miles out of the nearest large suburb, and I have no doubt that if they showed up on my property, they'd not appreciate looking at the muzzle of my shotgun as I sent them on their way.

Well put, #17. During the Great Depression, there was one such an encampment on outskirts of a small Midwestern town. Town residents called it "Bum's Jungle." I know this because my mother found it one day while exploring. The hobos invited her to sit and made polite conversation while sharing their meagre meal with her. When Mom got home, her mother went ballistic and warned her never to go there again. She thought the men were nice but sad. They probably were. Times were different then. So were hobos.

The claim that they have "nowhere to go" is a lie. There are plenty of homeless shelters in NYC -- we have an entire Department of Homeless Services, and it provides tens of thousands of beds nightly. The shelters are not pleasant places, to be sure, but the expression that beggars can't be chosers is appropriate here. The real problem, other than that the subway might be considered a nicer place to sleep by canny bums, is that many homeless are crazy and don't begin to understand their options. They should be taken to the shelters by outreach personnel and deposited there. "Against their will," you protest? How about sane taxpayers who are arrested these days for throwing a frisbee with their kids in an empty park? "Poverty lawyers" and "homeless advocates" like the pajama boy quoted in this piece, are of course beneath contempt.

Something interesting is happening to greenhouse gas emissions thanks to the coronavirus pandemic: They are plummeting. The world is seeing the lowest oil demand relative to supply perhaps ever, leading to oil futures contracts selling for negative values at several points. The International Energy Agency estimates that this year world carbon dioxide output will fall by a whopping 8 percent. If that pans out, it would be the largest drop ever recorded — some six times larger than the fall during the 2008 global financial crisis.

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

Never was former Vice President Joe Biden the 2020 dream. He promised electability and familiarity, which turned out to be good enough for a plurality of Democratic voters in the early primaries. But now that every other Democratic contender has dropped out and dutifully lined up behind the presumptive nominee, that choice might be sitting less comfortably. Biden is campaigning from his basement, giving interviews in which he occasionally moves past gaffes into total incoherence, raising questions about his mental fitness. Worst of all, evidence for a sexual assault allegation against him begins to mount.
