It's an interesting, sad read, worth the time - and maybe an e-mail to the mayor's office asking whatever happened to Long Island.

Perhaps there'll be a part 2 in which they talk to the people who live in that area (yes, there are apartments there) on how their lives have been changed by the influx.

They're bad enough downtown, but now they've invaded the Longwood Medical Area, a concerned citizen complains:

Please do something about these "fundraisers" who harass everyone who walks by. It is obnoxious and invasive.
