Grand Central Winter, Expanded Second Edition

Stories from the Street


In the underground tunnels below Grand Central Terminal, LeeStringer—homeless and drug-addicted for eleven years—found a pencil to runthrough his crack pipe. One day he used it to write. Soon writing became ahabit that won out over drugs, and before long Stringer had created one of themost powerful urban memoirs of our time.

With humane wisdom and a biting wit, Stringer chronicles theunraveling of his seemingly secure existence as a marketing executive and hisodyssey of survival on the streets of New York. Whether he is portraying “God’scorner,” as he calls 42nd Street, or his friend Suzi, a hooker and “past-duetourist” whose infant he sometimes babysits, whether he recounts taking shelterunderneath Grand Central by night and collecting cans by day or making aliving hawking Street News on thesubway, Lee Stringer conveys the vitality and complexity of a down-and-outlife.

Rich with small acts of kindness, humor, and evenheroism amid violence and desperation, GrandCentral Winter offers a touching portrait of our shared humanity.
