Every night in NYC city, nearly 4,000 people sleep on the street, in the subway system, or in other public spaces. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. The vast majority of New Yorkers experiencing homelessness – over 63,000 homeless – spend the night instead within the city’s shelter system where they remain unseen. 
In a city of 8.5 million people, nearly 1 in every 121 New Yorkers is currently homeless. But only 1 out of every 17 of these individuals is visible to the eye.
