Now I know what's going on

When I first saw Jasper, I wondered about that small building next to it, next to the empty lot, and then on curbed I read something about a homeless shelter?, and so this morning I got the address, 120 E 32nd Street, and the name on the building, "mainchance", and so it does seem to be true:

The Mainchance Drop-In Center is GCNSSC’s multi-service facility, and it is our home base. At Mainchance, clients can stay in emergency overnight shelter or catch a bus to a faith-based overnight bed program; eat 3 meals a day in our kitchen; and take an exercise class with one of our community volunteers.

The GCNSSC Mainchance Drop-In Center serves a diverse street homeless population of single adults in and around Midtown Manhattan. As one of the city's largest drop-in centers, we assist individuals of many ages, backgrounds and cultures. Most of all, at Mainchance, we offer refuge from the street in a protective, welcoming and supportive environment - and we do it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

In August of 2004 we moved to our new space on 120 East 32nd Street. The building’s name came from the phrase “having an eye for the main chance,” which describes someone who is always looking to improve their situation. We named our new center “Mainchance” after this idiomatic expression because we felt that this multi-service center would give clients their best chance at a new future—one full of opportunity and hope.

It is actually quite a beautiful cause, helping those less fortunate and those who were dealt a raw deal in life (which reminds me of the Bob Dylan quote, "You can't win with a losing hand"), and trying to create greater social justice and compassion --- it is just hard to try to sell luxury condos next to it!

Hmm.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
