Police appear to be turning a blind eye to a growing crowd of drug addicts shooting up in broad daylight in Manhattan's Midtown neighborhood as locals plead for someone to step in and put an end to the unsettling scenes. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the once bustling area at the heart of the Big Apple has emptied of office workers rushing to and from meetings and tourists snapping photos of sparking skyscrapers. They've now been replaced with people down on their luck, many of them struggling with drug addiction, who have come to call that stretch of Broadway 'home'.

Pardon me, but up yours Manhattan libs!
some of the junkies aren’t social distancing!
“Replaced with people down on their luck”??? Seriously? Drug addition is purely self-inflicted. It is the result of bad choices. It is not “down on your luck”.
How depressing. The photos really look like shots from a dystopian movie, say a movie about savages and zombies roaming an abandoned city after a virus panic has destroyed civilized life...
Nice going, deBlasio.
This is DeBlousy-o’s NYC.................

It looks like a cleaned up and sanitized version of downtown Los Angeles, actually Downtown Los Angeles was in this Stage about 15 years ago, you guys have a long ways to go to catch up.
Exactly! The Zombies can eat the urban libs for all I care.
Darwin Theory. Democrats are about Pro-Choice let them have it. Free Country Pro-Choice they can choose to use drugs and OD or live life to the fullest.
Huh, whaddaya know?
This is known as "bad luck"

I can’t believe the number of post on here and none of you live in New York City :-)
Are your lives that boring that you have to look to New York City for entertainment and take pleasure in bad things?
You are disgusting the whole lot of you.
I take no joy that because Texas and Florida thought they were smarter than everyone else and didn’t shut down for a minute cases are exploding and hundreds are dying a day.
see I love the country that includes all of the states.
And I noticed when New York people were dying there were 10 posts a day on it at least.
And people wanted to build a fence around us.
I can’t find one thread on Texas and Florida exploding.
And now the deaths aren’t real all of a sudden but they were in New York City.
You guys are a joke
Does anyone remember what NYC was like before Rudy was mayor? It’s headed straight back to those days. Fortunately I have no reason to go to NYC any longer.
No police activity!!!
Shocking. I guess you get what you pay for.
BTW-I wonder how many of those unmasked junkies are getting the Covid-19?
Police dont arrest unkies because theres no money to be made arresting broke junkies. Let one well-dressed, rich suburbanite try to shoot up in the middle of Manhattan and they will be arrested in a heartbeat.
Far too often law enforcement is nothing but a brutal and capricious form of taxation.
These idiots will freeze to death in winter.
