On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we’ll take a look at homelessness in New York City. One statistic from the Coalition for the Homeless estimates, that there are nearly sixty thousand people sleeping in municipal shelters each night. There are others who believe that’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. So are the numbers increasing or aren’t they? In studio to talk about this issue are Jeff Foreman, The Director of Policy at New York City Care for the Homeless and Mira Garrett Bayonne, the Co-Founder and broker at Skyton Group. Skyton Group is a boutique brokerage firm that works with the city to provide affordable housing units to homeless clients.
