People below 39th Street were on the streets looking for shelter and a warm meal and just a few blocks higher, women who lunch along with their husbands who love having trophy wives were shopping for yet another handbag at thousands of dollars a pop. Listen, we like blowing dough as much as the next person, but how about a little sensitivity during this miserable helpless time? All you have to do is turn on the TV to see fellow New Yorkers totally down and out. People are literally living on the streets or next to their burned out homes waiting for the Red Cross to bring their next meal. It is so terribly heartbreaking.
The pictures you see on this post are just a few of what Eliot snapped today.
