A quick Google Search(see link) shows that dozens of citys now have passed new anti-camping laws on their books. These laws are aimed at Occupy and homeless at large. Anti-Camping laws were mainly in big citys and rarely enforced. Homeless have responed to harrasment in big citys by just moving out into smaller citys like Scranton PA and Binghamton NY and cute college towns like Ithaca NY. Most homeless and hobos just want to live a simple nomadic life and be left alone as they have done forever before this mess. As for myself I am not looking forward to having my sleeping spots blown as a long distance bicylist and part time train hopper.(Like that gazebo on Long Island) Occupy should do something to mitigate the unintentional conseqences of this. Pottinger vs City of Miami is case law on there side..But my last converastion with NLG they told me no lawsuits..
