Federal officials say Long Island has eliminated chronic homelessness among veterans. That means there is a system in place to permanently house all known and future homeless veterans.

Wednesday night was the coldest night of the winter so far in the region, with temperatures dropping to the single digits and wind chills of nearly 20 degrees below zero. In cities like New Haven, this can mean tough times for the homeless, like Jose, a 44-year-old man born and raised in New Haven’s Fairhaven neighborhood.

“Some people could adapt. Some can’t. I adapt,” says Jose as he looks across the green. He’s standing outside the New Haven Free Public Library, and snow has just begun to fall. It won’t last for long - only a quick flurry - but the real cold is still coming.

We look at one history-making sale in Greenwich, Connecticut that's setting the tone for springtime homesellers.
