This morning's front page of The New York Times was dominated by a lengthy feature story, "Girl in the Shadows: Dasani's Homeless Life," that represents wonderful journalism about the thousands of homeless children in New York City.

Online, the NYT website carries all five parts of the series. Each is longform and expertly illustrated -- but be forewarned, it will take you a while to get through it all. It's worth it, however. There are 22,000 homeless children in New York City (roughly the population of Anniston), the most since the Great Depression.
