Earlier this week, parks officers tore down a homeless man’s twig hut in Prospect Park after uppity locals—who obviously don’t respect ingenuity—complained about it. Haterz! According to the Brooklyn Paper, the “well-made” shack stood “six-foot-tall” and was “big enough to sleep three men.” There’s always this alternative. (Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze)
