DC benches are disappearing

Clarence Branch

So many of the old cast-iron benches are gone. There’s one, at 14th Street NW. There is no place to sit anymore. We homeless people have to get off of the streets and go inside more now. I feel that we are being either run inside or run out of the city, if we do not go inside somewhere to sleep. I feel that we are being run off the streets slowly but surely.
