NEW YORK, A homeless man in New York City was evicted from a spot he had made for himself inside the Manhattan Bridge by NYPD cops on Thursday.
When he was given the boot, Joe was forced to leave behind Chinese cookies, a gas heater, hot sauce and beer.
The raid on Joes lair was conducted when a city worker used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock from the wooden shelter while 12 officers looked on.
When cops yelled Police department, Police department, they got no response, so Emergency Service Unit officers began using a saw on the structure.
Thats when Joe, who was dressed in white pajamas, emerged.
Hes fine. Hes fine. He didnt answer. No one got hurt, thank God, a senior officer told the New York Post.
Joe was taken to Bellevue for a check-up.
Thats amazing! I didnt think he was in there. When I saw his legs pop out, I was like, Oh [expletive]! said another officer.
Kind of an urban survivor man?

When I saw his legs pop out, I was like................
What’s with so many people nowadays talking like teenage girls? I was like, she was like, he’s all, OMG,
Language has definitely changed for the worse, in my opinion.
That’s a cute little manpad.

"On the street, when it's all closed up, if you don't know about it, you think it's a garbage can," said Kloehn, 42, as he invited AFP to step inside for a house tour.
"They don't know I'm in here sleeping... Even with the barbecue going outside, chicken wings grilling, people just walk by. They don't see it as a home."
