They are called feet.
You put one in front of the other until you find a suitably warm place to stay. Anyone without the basic survival instinct to do that, well Darwin has a place for them.

Yeah well, many homeless people deserve that treatment. I worked in the social services sector for a bit and many of those people got what they asked for. Not all of them mind you, but don't make the mistake of thinking that the majority of them fall into the category of "sometimes bad things happen to good people". That's not the reality of the situation.
Sorry, but I'm going to reserve my sympathies for those who deserve it. Like the one's affected by Sandy. They didn't ask for it.

To freeze to DEATH in NY you'd literally have to go out of your way to do it.
That is a pretty silly comment.
How would you go about " going out of your way" ?
Do you have secret?

I've been finding it wierd how I have had to search for current info on what is going on. ATS is the best resource right now.
I would hope and assume that most people at risk have already left the city or found warm/safe refuge with either friends/family/neighbors/hotels or shelters. I can't imagine that thousands of people would simply sit in their dark/cold homes and freeze to death. I am sure there will be some...namely the elderly or handicapped or others without the capacity to move on their own accord. But largely, I would think that those affected from the cold would leave or get help much as they did from the storm.

It was interesting to read the NY poster from above that claims all the non sense threads need to stop. Really? I am confused.

This so silly. I live in NYC, all of the "NY is "put tragedies here" " threads need to stop.
