NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 22: A homeless man begs for money on a Manhattan street on August 22, 2014 in New York City. According to the Department of Homeless Services, the number of homeless people in New York City has risen by more than 20,000 over the past five years. Newly elected Mayor Bill de Blasio, who ran as a liberal, has released a $41 billion plan to create 200,000 units of affordable housing across the city. Critics say the plan is too far off and that more immediate solutions need to be implemented to halt the increase of homelessness. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
