According to today’s NY Post, Will Andersen and his nine year old dog, Rizzo, take their spot outside New York City’s Grand Central Terminal and rake in up to $200/hr panhandling in prime time slots.
The 43-year old former stagehand is not the only street-smart street person out there, the article claims.
No longer homeless, he now has an apartment in Inwood, from the income he makes with his pooch-prop by his side.
The new spotlight on these hustlers is due to NY Police Commissioner Bratton’s comments yesterday that if New Yorkers really wanted to get rid of vagrants, they should just stop giving.
Fortunately, the commish hasn’t visited the Dueling Piano bar yet.
