The homeless man who received a pair of boots from a New York City police officer is still walking around barefoot.
According to a report in the New York Times, the homeless man told a reporter he had to hide his new boots, which cost $100, because they were expensive and he was afraid someone would kill him for them.
The New York City Police officer bought the man the new pair of boots in November.
The image of the officer kneeling next to the homeless man instantly became famous on social media.
After a one-two punch of snowstorms, we're left with bitter cold. Even with plenty of sunshine today, look for highs only around 30-degrees. West winds 5-10 mph with feels like temperatures in the teens. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks.
The cold stays with us for a few more days.
Then, we start tracking another potentially messy wnitry storm, set to arrive on Saturday.
