Home in Box Had Its Problems; Alternative Does, Too - New York Times
The box is as long and low as a frontier coffin, and answers soundly a knock of the knuckles. It has four small wheels and a heavy chain that snakes through a hole on the side and wraps around a “No Standing” sign. Hundreds of neighbors and Little Italy tourists pass it every day, just off a strip of busy lighting stores on the Bowery at Broome Street. They pass the box with barely a glance.

This is a fairly decent article about what it's like for a homeless man living in a box. It's not a sympathy piece but just a look at this guy's reflections on life in the box and life in the new apartment he's moving in to, along with a summary of his background. It's a good article, so I figured I'd share. :)
