The New York Times Finds a Real Life Hobo

04.19.11 Bucky Turco

New York City has plenty of homeless people, but hobos? Usually, the only proof of their existence comes by way of folksy tags on freight trains, however, the New York Times managed to track down a “honest-to-goodness ramblin’ man” in Riverside Park. The 48-year-old, in stereotypical fashion, told the reporter he was looking to “hop a train outta here.” Apparently, he’s not a big fan of the city and would never stoop so low as to ride the Chinatown bus.
