Foto Friday – Single Dad in the City

Andre and Drea

Andre Lythcott raises his four children in the South Bronx. He says it’s difficult providing for his children while on public assistance. Although grateful, Lythcott says with four kids it’s not enough. He says, “I think it’s a system designed to keep people down.”

Currently, 1.7 million New Yorkers, or 21% of the population now fall below the poverty line

With the increase in the percentage of people living in poverty in New York, many believe the next mayor’s agenda should focus in decreasing the inequality gap. Lythcott votes in every election and believes this as well.

Below is an intimate look at Lythcott with his youngest daughter Drea, doing her hair while he waits for dinner to be ready.

      Thanks Jerome. When he started doing his daughter’s hair, I got the camera with the quickness, lol.
