    They and their water jugs are all over the place, it's been going on for a few years and they get exposed every once in a while but they are set up in tourist areas hitting up tourists that do not know about the scam.

    I figure when I pay my income tax I'm giving to charity.

    New York City to Add Homeless Shelters
    February 28, 2017 — New York City would open about 90 new homeless shelters in five years under a plan unveiled Tuesday, but would wind down the practice of putting up some homeless people in hotels and private apartments. The $300 million plan is Mayor Bill de Blasio's latest effort to deal with a stubborn surge in homelessness in the last decade.

    I visited a friend in NYC back in 2000, and she told me the same thing. She said not to donate to the endless homeless kids, because they're not even homeless and only prey on tourists.
