It certainly isn't breakfast at Tiffany's, but New York's homeless are getting something pretty darn close.
A Chinese recycling billionaire has promised $300 and a high-priced lunch to 250 residents of Manhattan's shelters at the Boathouse restaurant in Central Park, according to NBC New York.
As guests lunch on sesame-seed encrusted tuna, beef filet, and berries with creme fraiche, host Chen Guangbiao, will serenade them by singing "We are the World."
Guangbiao, 46, says that he is trying to deconstruct the image of wealthy Chinese spending too much on luxuries by having this event.

High priced lunch? They probably need basic foodstuffs, shoes, blankets, a blow up mattress, and toiletries. How about paying for job training?
Yeah but Obama takes over 47% of Americans to lunch every day.
So how will the starving homeless people in his Country take this? I would bet he pays his people 50 cents an hour...nice gesture but it’s a bunch of BS.
I didn’t think we had homeless under Obama. Where is the media?
“Guangbiao, 46, says that he is trying to deconstruct the image of wealthy Chinese spending too much on luxuries...”
By spending too much on luxuries?
Donate the money and/or time to a church based soup kitchen would be my advice to him.
Oh, and also, don’t torture them with “we are the world.”
More nonsense. The real problem is that the “homeless” are refractory mentally ill people. Liberals, with their touching concern for their civil rights, closed the facilities where these unfortunate people were housed, clothed and fed.
What about tomorrow? The news story will be 250 NYC homeless defecate in street.
Why not just take them back to China?
i’d like to see the pics of this event. imagine homeless people sitting down with white table cloths, eating fancy food? the silver platters? the serenading?
How does one live in a “communist” country and become a billionaire?
seems to be a pattern note fall of communism in the USSR.
And the next day, when they’re back in the gutter, starving, how many of them will be so demoralized they slit their wrists? Liberals are cold hearted.
Why does that remind Me of the scene in Good Morning Vietnam with the Bar scene of Been through the desert on a horse with no name song?
Plus it appears he will be torturing them with his singing.
Bingo! It is downright cruel to let these people roam the streets when they are incapable of making their own life decisions.
The news story will be 250 NYC homeless defecate in street.
I am wondering what that restaurant is going to look like afterwards....
you would think a shower beforehand would be the least he could do......
this is downright wrong. send the money to a church or housing shelter based service.
