Have the homeless become invisible? NY experiment surprises

Posted: Updated:
A project in New York City has gone viral about how the average person responds, reacts or even recognizes the homeless.

The video documents a number of individuals whose family members volunteered to be made-up to look like they were homeless and living on the streets of New York.
As each member of the experiment walks by, none of them recognize their family member sitting mere feet from them, seemingly living in poverty.

The experiment was conducted by the New York City Rescue Mission and it is titled: "Make Them Visible".
