AMERICA TODAY: Young And Homeless In New York City

AMERICA TODAY: Young And Homeless In New York City: "Scott and Whitney G. don't like to sleep in. During the week they're up by 9:00 a.m. when the West 71st Street Lutheran Church super pounds on the building's red front door beside where they sleep.
Scott, 23, lifts his head first. He shakes Whitney, 25, and they climb their feet.
I know this because one morning last week I was sitting by the curb in a Coleman camp chair waiting for them to get up.
Just go to the photos >
For months I've wanted to tell their story. After chasing them around the Upper West Side for two weeks — following a series of missed meetings, notes left on their gear and my apartment entrance — I finally enter into stalker territory.  Interviewing homeless people is no easy feat."
