The Downtown 4/5/6 Platform at Grand Central

I couldn't help but notice these six large posters a gentleman was assembling here today. Each sign tugs at your heartstrings--assuming you have a heart. Some of it seems a bit embellished though: his landlord has only given him until December 24th before he's immediately evicted; he was just hit by a taxi and one of the injuries was "spinal disorder and laceration to the right arm." Regardless of the truthiness of the details, it's a strong presentation replete with caricatures of himself in the future out on the streets being homeless.

That's him setting up the change receptacle under the poster explaining his Metrocard expired and he can't get work if he can't get to the interview.
