Grand Central Station Reduced to Homeless Shelter

Prior to Rudy Giuliani, getting through Grand Central Station was rough. You had to step over the multitudinous psychotic bums who slept there day and night, any of which might suddenly snap awake and come at you with a knife. The beggars were so aggressive as to qualify as muggers. It was wonderful when Giuliani came in and reclaimed Grand Central on behalf of civilization. Unfortunately, under Bill de Blasio, the famous terminal has reverted to jungle. Business owners find the current situation intolerable.

From CBS New York:

Inside the world-class transit hub adorned with grand chandeliers, you’ll find men and women sleeping at tables, hunched over on benches, using drinking fountains to bathe and walking barefoot feet away from where about two dozen business owners are trying to make a living selling food.

Joe Germanotta reports that Grand Central has in effect become a homeless shelter.

Germanotta owns Art Bird & Whiskey Bar, one of the restaurants in the lower-level dining concourse of Grand Central Terminal. He says the overwhelming homeless problem has him on the brink of closing. He’s already cut staff.

Running a business in Grand Central isn’t cheap.

Germanotta says he pays about $50,000 a month to the MTA.

But the Metropolitan Transportation Authority doesn’t see a problem, so long as it can fill its leases. Expecting de Blasio to side with business owners and employed commuters against psychotic drug-addled bums would be absurd. So the standard of living in New York continues to decline, despite the booming economy.
