Miracle on 22nd Street

Jim and Dylan live in the Chelsea area of New York City -nowhere near the North Pole. They don't know how so many children got their home address, but for years they've received letters to Santa Claus at their apartment. The number of letters has grown into the hundreds this year. Many of them are from children seeking basic supplies instead of toys.
Hi Santa,
My name is Jennifer and my little sister’s name is Stephanie. I’m 8½ years old and Stephanie is 7 years. Santa our behavior this year have been excellent. You can ask my mom if you want. Please Santa bring me some clothes. I’m 10T and my shoe size is 4 and Stephanie is 8T shoes size 2½. Please make my dreams come true for Christmas.

This year, instead of wondering why they get them, Jim and Dylan are trying to fulfill the children's wishes, with the help of friends, neighbors, and anyone who wants to lend a hand. Tom Mason and Sarah Klein produced a video about the letters. Link

-via Metafilter, where a commenter may have found a clue as to the origin of the address in a 1998 article.
