An Open Letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City

Posted on April 3, 2011
Filed Under Michael Bloomberg | 11 Comments

An email I sent a month ago to the city of New York remains unanswered, and meanwhile every day homeless people are being forced out of their makeshift houses and left without alternatives regarding where to sleep. I simply asked to document the “razing” of the last 30 encampments on the island of Manhattan, and was completely ignored. Please stop ignoring me, Mayor Bloomberg.

    There is no US city more expensive to live in than New York City. As the least affordable place to live in the USA, it makes no sense in terms of return on investment to house ANY homeless people in New York City. They can be supported better, with a higher quality of life, elsewhere.

    Hey everyone,
    A bunch of kids from Paris met me today.
    They love Jante Degaul & the squirrel on Tom Heneghans myspace.
    They were amazed of all my writings on indymedia org at Arizonia, Miami, NYC, Ambazonia, Kenya and several others.
    I have met with three film schools in the past week also.
    Hey Hillary, Hey Bush Fuck you
    An American Patriot Jeff Fisher

    Max well done. Due to personal reasons I was made homeless in New York, thank God it was during the Summer. To cut a very long story short I managed to get a job and get a ticket back to the UK in the nick of time. I am now staying in a hostel, working and slowly getting my life back together. The homeless community that I met in NY were lovely, however, the shelters were disgusting.
    Good luck with everything you do and please get back to me with any updates:0)

    GET F**K’N Real Dude…. You have to be strong survive the streets!!! Everyday they wake up alive they are winners. I was Homeless for 8+ Yrs., I was NOT a drunk or druggie, i was looking for real life outside the box, pure freedom. I have been off the streets for 6 Yrs., and I miss it everyday. I hope to write a book or do something creative thing having to do with my years on the street.
    Living on the street is hard work, it is real survival!!!

    I like that you’re willing to speak out about this, but I’m wondering – in that letter, did you actually ‘ask’ any questions? It seemed more like a statement letter..
    And what’s unconstitutional about ridding the homeless from the streets? They don’t own property to have property rights.
    Again, I dig your work, but try to be more precise in your delivery. Keep it up!

    thanks, yeah she never responded and that particular strain of the issue died out, but I’ve been working on a feature film about homelessness in NY and it’s almost done.

    I hope that maybe I can reopen this particular issue once that movie is finished, and see if I can illicit some sort of response.

    but, then again, this IS the New York City gov’t were talking about here, I wouldn’t expect any miracles.

    I think it’s really cool that you’re trying to do something about this. Any update?
