Home Street Home

Home Street Home

Home Street Home is the story of Dean Cummings, a homeless man who has been living in a box disguised as a dumpster for little over a year. Kitty-corner to the Chanel boutique at Spring and Wooster streets in Soho sits a vacant lot surrounded by a tall chain-link fence. Locked to the outside of the fence is what appears to be a black wooden Dumpster, tagged by a graffiti artist. It's the kind of thing you see all over the city and think nothing of. But this wooden bin doesn't hide trash cans - it houses Dean. In 2016 2 male models Shane Duffy and Phil; Sullivan went homeless to raise awareness. What they didn't expect was to find a friend. A week later the two tracked down Cummings and told him the truth: They weren't actually homeless. And they wanted to help. Duffy built the box at his contracting-business partner's New Hyde Park, LI, shop for $1,500, splashing out on pressure-treated wood meant to withstand New York City's winters. Then in 2017 NYPD carted away Dean's home and life. In return they issued a summons and a court date. Only time will tell exactly what will transpire and the bottom of this story is only yet being scratched.
