Homeless man shoeless again in NYC despite boots

NYPD Officer Larry DePrimoNYPD Officer Larry DePrimo helps homeless man with no shoes.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City homeless man -- whose gift of boots from an NYPD police officer became an online sensation -- is back on the streets with no shoes .

The New York Times found him Sunday night wandering barefoot in Manhattan. The paper identified him as Jeffrey Hillman, formerly of South Plainfield, N.J.

Asked about the $100 all-weather boots Officer Larry DePrimo gave him on Nov. 14, Hillman says he's hidden them because "they are worth a lot of money."

He says he's grateful for the gift, but he wants "a piece of the pie" because the photo was posted online "without permission."

Jennifer Foster, a Florence, AZ, tourist, posted a photograph of DePrimo giving Hillman a pair of boots and socks on a frigid night in Times Square on Nov. 17.

The image became an instant hit on the NYPD's Facebook page.
