This homeless couple really puts the “camp” in encampment.
Two vagrants recently began living out of a tent in Midtown Manhattan — and are so happy with their new home they’re literally dancing in the street.
Ronald and Jermaine Wright, who met while panhandling on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village and are now married, said they found the red-and-blue fabric shelter in a trash bin about a week ago.
They set it up in front of a vacant lot and under a tree on East 30th Street because the site is “secluded,” said Ronald, 54.
“This is a new spot for us,” said Jermaine, 40, who added that before finding the tent, he and Ronald just bedded down on pieces of cardboard, wrapped up in blankets or a tarp.
Ronald said they have applied for an apartment through Breaking Ground, a nonprofit that provides “supportive housing” to chronically homeless people.
But in the meantime, the couple said they preferred the solitude and safety of their tent to the city’s shelter system.
“Shelters, they got crackheads, they got dope fiends,” Jermaine said.
“I’m just trying to, you know, be somewhere safe. An environment where I don’t have to worry about missing my stuff.”
When not out begging for spare change, the men spend their time listening to music — usually gospel, hip-hop and “slow-jam” blues — on a battery-powered radio, and dancing with each other.
They even broke into an impromptu cha-cha while speaking with The Post.
A manager at the parking garage across the street, who gave his name as Abe H., confirmed that the men love to move their feet.
On Tuesday, he said, “they were playing music, they were dancing . . . about 1 o’clock.
“Having fun. Too much fun,” he added.
Safety manager Rocco Fury, who works at a construction site on the block, said he’s seen Jermaine in the neighborhood for about two years, and called the tent “a good score.”
“He put an American flag over it the other day, and it was really cool. I was like, ‘No one’s gonna mess with that,’ ” said Fury, 50.
Jermaine said that “the cops don’t bother us,” adding that “one cop was like, ‘Hey, what are you doing in there?’ I was like, ‘We not doing nothing but sleeping.’ ”
Tourists staying in a nearby Airbnb apartment were shocked to see the tent when they arrived.
“At first we didn’t know why it’s there . . . It’s something new…
