NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 20: A homeless man plays his guitar while panhandling on the street on June 20, 2011 in New York City. According to an annual report on the city's homeless population conducted by the Coalition for the Homeless, a record 113,553 people turned to shelters last year. This was an eight percent increase over the previous year and is a 37 percent increase since 2002. While the reasons for the increase are numerous, the economy and the unemployment rate played a significant part in the numbers. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) less
