NY Businessman Takes Money from Homeless Person Near Park Ave Near the 60's
READER Pat Weich was on Park Avenue in the 60s. A Wednesday, 4:30 in the afternoon. A beggar stood in the street. Hand out, palm upward, holding a few quarters. Well-dressed businessman — suit, tie, briefcase — passed by. The beggar inched over, hand extended. The businessman stopped, reached in his hand, helped himself to a quarter, smiled, gave a big "thanks" and walked away.
