‘All Hands On Deck’ To Help NYC Homeless In Cold Snap

In New York’s Central Park, the temperatures fell to 4 degrees this morning, breaking a record set in 1896. Cold-sensitive animals like the zebras and giraffe have been taken indoors at city zoos.

Officials have declared a code blue emergency. And that means twice the number of outreach crews to help the homeless have been sent out, to encourage people living on the street to go to city shelters.

Patrick Markee, senior policy analyst for the Coalition for the Homeless in New York City, joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss the effort.
