Appellate Court Gives Upper West Side New York Homeless Men A Temporary Second Chance
Appellate court is letting around. 200 homeless men remain in an Upper West Side hotel for at least a couple of weeks. The decision temporarily reverses the lower court decision that would have allowed the De Blasio administration to transfer the men downtown. One resident who goes by the name Shams says he's heartened by this development. We've gotten closer to the goal of saying that we do matter that we should be acceptable, not just here but in any community. City spokesman says the residents will be better served at the downtown facility. The city had moved them into the Lucerne hotel over the summer to prevent the spread of covert 19.
