jeff hillman bballThe media was buzzing about Jeff Hillman, the New York City homeless man who resurfaced without shoes — again.  Larry DePrimo, a kind New York City policeman,  bought Hillman socks and new boots on November 14th. 
 
 But once again – Hillman was in bare feet.  He said that he hid the boots because they were expensive.  Unfortunately, the feet are suffering from the frigid weather. 
 
Reports said that Hillman is, in fact, not homeless.  He has an apartment in the New York area and his family said that he chooses this lifestyle on the streets.   
 
Hillman was not always seeking a boot hand-out.  He attended South Plainfield High School, NJ and graduated in 1976.  Hillman (#21) played on the basketball team as pictured in yearbook.  He was a master at dribbling.  
 
It is unfortunate that an individual can resort to such a sad state of life.  The New York police officer performed an admirable deed that happened to be caught by a tourist photo.   Some people think the officer was conned.  The boots may be hidden — or sold, but I am sure other kind-hearted people will give Hillman more assistance without the flash of a camera.
