When you have few options you do things you may otherwise may never do. I was homeless for two days & chose to spend my two nights in the San Francisco airport as opposed to a shelter until I could get on a train to Portland.

Subways are a lot different - you can install turnstiles and there's no way to get around them.
|Quoting frostyj (Reply 30):|
I won't give you the time of the day when you call homeless people "homeless bums". Let's get one thing straight - you have no right to degrade a human being.
Just because you have some money doesn't mean that you are any better. Come down off you're horse.

I forgot my PC correct mindset when I titled this but yes the economy is so bad that it could easily be me on the streets

Homeless bums take over LGA.
They even bathe (naked) in the public restrooms

We need solutions here not just complainers!
|Quoting jetblue1965 (Reply 26):|
LGA T-B and EWR-A are particularly bad since most of the F&B offerings are curbside not air-side.

Ok guys, that's a sad story. Question: Why don't they just buy an AA Club membership and eat, sleep, shower in the lounge? Hot shower should beat a cold bathroom sink, no? And with all the food and beverages they could consume you'd figure it would be worth it since they're hanging out at LGA a lot as it is? Why not become a paying customer instead of always lingering out on the fringes?

I was born and raised in America and if my memory is correct (which it is) I remember seeing homeless people here for the last 35 years. We have a saying here in America think before you speak
|Quoting rmoore7734 (Reply 29):|
It would also need laundry facilities to wash the body odor off the clothes otherwise I can't see AA allowing
|Quoting skysurfer (Reply 32):|
Pardon me if i come across as ignorant, but would it be possible for the airport authorities to put some of these people in paid work? Something like, if you are going to be here we'll provide xyz for you cleaning or doing this and that?
|Quoting HPRamper (Reply 20):|
That's interesting and I never knew about that. I know in Montana, Bozeman addressed their homeless problem by doing the same thing, sending them all to Billings. Hard to believe it's legal, but technically no laws are being broken I suppose, and while the receiving city doesn't want to be involved, by the time they know it's already over and done.
|Quoting jetblue1965 (Reply 21):|
It's a little different. I'm guessing you experienced IRROPS ?
|Quoting ua900 (Reply 33):|
If it were me I would rather work at McD than accepting homelessness

Sorry for drifting off topic, but what do you mean by 'mileage run''
|Quoting STT757 (Reply 1):|
But if I were them I would be at the airport too, it's safe and get to watch airplanes
|Quoting thekorean (Reply 6):|
City needs to provide better, safer shelter and this would not be happening.
