After years of homeless people pulling up pavement in Times Square, social workers say they are down to only one now. Known as Heavy, he is officially the last of the homeless people left in New York City’s famous entertainment district.Despite offers of housing, Heavy refuses to leave the streets he has known for decades. Locals have grown accustom to him and say he is part of the landscape. There is always someone willing to slip him money or clothing despite keeping a low profile in the city that never sleeps. He ain’t Heavy, he’s our brother.
