Gimme Shelter

Of 13 families who lost their homes when two Park Avenue buildings collapsed in March, only two have found permanent housing. The rest, some of whom are related to the eight people killed in the accident, are shacking up in temporary places offered up by local landlords and receiving financial aid from the city. Complicating matters are some PTSD issues and the fact that most of the buildings' tenants didn't make very much, and East Harlem rents are on the rise. [WSJ; previously]
