The number of children in the city’s shelters hit 19,000 last week, the most recent city data available show.

“Not since the grim days of the Great Depression has New York City had 20,000 children sleeping homeless each night,” said Patrick Markee, senior policy analyst with the Coalition for the Homeless.

In the past year alone, the total shelter population has risen by 17% and the number of children has risen by 18%, city stats show.

Mayor Bloomberg said recently that the number of homeless children was increasing because of the recession.
