Live from the basement of the school library it’s the homeless student blogger! From the his Live Journal user info page:
Hello folks, I’m Bobst Boy, a sophomore here at good ‘ole NYU. I’m a English lit. major, specializing in creative writing. This semester because of financial reasons, I’m living at Bobst Library, trying to make it on my own in this heartless city we like to call New York. I’m just trying to make the best out of my situation, get some writing ideas and learn some lessons about people and about life. Check out my not-yet-done webpage for a FAQ about living in the library and some other junk.
If you read the linked article, the NYU administration comes off as acting remarkably decent.
