Away from the majestic pinnacles of Manhattan, so much of this city is like the steerage compartment of an immigrant ship, neglected old buildings at the edge of ruin, 200,000 families living doubled or tripled up, working people paying half their income for a few feet of warmth and a foldaway bed. The vacancy rates in New York's poorer neighborhoods hover around 1%. There is a 10-year wait for public housing. Shelters for homeless families are full beyond capacity.

Damn them, anyway! Weren't they supposed to be his friends?

Carlton Collier was angry, at his pals and at his own bad judgment.

Eighteen opponents of U.S. military involvement in Central America staged a three-hour prayer vigil Friday in front of the downtown Federal Building in Los Angeles after their plans to be arrested for trespassing on federal property went awry. In New York City, meanwhile, more than 60 people were arrested during a protest against a military museum.

The trucks were carrying the pieces of two modular homes across the George Washington Bridge from a factory in Pennsylvania to Charlotte Street, where Logue had decided to erect a handful of suburban-style private houses, complete with white picket fences.
