"I mean, you have to understand. I've spoken with nearly 50 Upper West Siders and these conversations. Are longer than an hour each one. I picked up the phone responded to these, You know, very lin, emails and messages and spoken to people. And by the end of the call more often than not, they're saying to me. Ah, now I understand what's going on. I don't like it. I don't like that. These people are here. But I understand now. What you're doing what you're doing to address the quality of life issues and uncomfortable with that. Well, I mentioned that we're inviting phone calls from people who live in the neighborhood, either in the Lucerne or neighbors of the loosen and let's take a call that we're getting from a resident of the hotel and I believe this caller is calling an ass. The homeless hero, homeless hero. You're on. W m. I say thank you so much for calling in How's everything? I'm I'm at the looser and I'm in my room right now. And I'm ready to speak on on some of these things that you would discussion will like you all. Have a beer? Sure. Well, one I wanted to say that I think One of the problems was that we were moved here quickly, and I don't think that to the community was informed in enough time to include in the local leaders to be able to provide the search services or the support That that that exist in the community already to sort of, like combat any of the potential problems that end up coming to the loot to the Upper West Side arm. Some of those same issues I started to see at the previous hotel we were at. So when I knew that we were coming to this community, which I've lived in previously for three years. I knew that there would be some type of problem. So as far as the quality of life issues. I think one of the things that needed to be done and has been done since is that there had to be a filtering process with some people who, because of their substance use issues and mental health issues might Need a higher level of care. So there is a lot of like, you know, Every residents gets a cycle socials, and they have some type of documentation of the history in terms of whatever their struggles are issues on everyone's value. I mean, varies so this type of community of course, this is a health matter. This is a situation that happened as a result of Cove it, you know, so things are happening on the fly. So you could expect some of states But I think that that was gonna cause the little problems for the first two weeks and I know Most of the residents that come from, you know, project renewal shelters. So I know those that have some some some issues that might need a high level K and no gold who were stuck in the medium and not understand where to go what to do with stuff like that, And they were exhibiting date behavior that they normally would because certain services were not in place to begin with. So what I did was I definitely made my voice known in order to try and bring about some type of services that would help and the same thing was being was happening a spark from the from from community supporters and also from the local leaders as well as the bubble president's office. So What we did was we end up bring it in our project. We know Recovery center, which is the outpatient group that is situated at third Street instead of them being banned us having to go there. They came here and opened up their services for everybody that is in the whoever would like to attend. You don't have to be a member of the outpatient group. But they were providing services here while they're still doing it at the in the penthouse understand the hotel, which Has been very, very so let me let me ask you a bigger picture question. How do you feel that since we're talking about a population as I understand it that has more than the usual concentration. For people in homeless shelters of any kind of Guys with substance abuse or mental health problems in their president in their past, How do you feel the city services are in general, which would be in everybody's interest. To sort of get right both in the interest of those people who are receiving the services and in the interest of whatever neighbors of people receiving those services who don't want, you know. The worst behaviors that are sometimes associated with those conditions. How is the city doing in your opinion? Well, the city itself has made a tremendous mistake as it was so many different things that are going on with this administration's rendering of services to me. I believe that a lot has to be reformed, especially in the area of homelessness and dealing with our population that feels with substance use disorder and Mental health issues. This has been going on for many, many years, and it's only increasing as time called goes by, and unfortunately in the era of cold it, it makes it even worse. We have to do more to address Substance use issues that many people have especially residing and shelters When you when you're in a situation that we are not ableto have the type of housing That would support us during our struggles, so, and shelters are not for the most part, not able to support us in those situations, so no matter what neighborhood we were in whether in hotels or in shelters, we still need supportive services, and that's probably one of the biggest things. Just a light identified. You accurately. You are currently a resident of Lucerne. And you also work or your client with Project renewal, which you named? Okay, I'm I'm the homeless hero. And I am a resident of the Lucerne under project renewal. And I'm also a client of projects we know will recover we sent in the outpatient group..

She told me that she did get a new room on Sunday with a shower. So that is good news. But you can see the mayor's decision had this pretty devastating consequences for people who were bearing the brunt of these decisions. Along with the Lucerne and the Harmonia. The city had also planned to close another hotel in Long Island City and woman there to family shop to a family shelter in flatlands and the women and young kids living there. We're going to be sent to other locations. All told, this was about 900 people who were going to have to move. When can you walk us back a bit. Why did the city make the call to close down two hotels had been using to house almost people, right? I mean, if we go back a little further at the height of the covert outbreak, the city As you mention before moved about 10,000, New Yorkers who are living in crowded group shelters into around 60 hotels across the city so people could be more socially distanced. Now four of those hotels happen to be on the Upper West Side. Lieutenant Lucerne Open most recently in late July to almost immediate backlash, a Facebook group was spreading anti homeless rhetoric and another group of residents fund raised more than $100,000 to challenge the shelter in court. So that was the backdrop last week when De Blasio made the call to shut it down. And what is the rationalization that he and the city are using their So, you know. Last week, Mayor Bill de Blasio justified this call, saying it was always part of the plan to move away from hotels once the covert 19 outbreak was under control. But there are around 60 hotels and used as I said, It's not clear why just peace to. We're going to close and why the moves had to happen so suddenly, to the point of telling people that they had to leave in a day or two when they had been living in this location for months or even years. Council member how in? Rosenthal says the way that this was carried out seems like a knee jerk reaction to a group of Upper West Siders who, how hired a powerful attorney. It has to be something more than you know. You get a call from one lawyer and then make these changes that have devastating ripple effects across the city. So fundamentally, what is the city's homeless policy now? So we'll be waiting to see what happens. Is this will the plan go forward? We'll be monitoring to watch to see if they start moving people out..

But I think this this music is to unfunded, even even for May Mark Side for rush on America's number one radio show. You know, one can. Ah, Mr and Mrs average if you still allowed to say that do between now and election day. Well, one of the things that's happened over the last six month is that tons of people are living where they would not be normally living. I notice I live on The Ah, the Connecticut River between far northern New Hampshire and far northern Vermont, and I noticed if Ugo around New Hampshire. It's full ofthe Massachusetts license plates on the roads and if you cross over the bridge Into Vermont, Vermont's full ofthe New York state license plates because what's happened since the cove it and since the lock down and since the looting. Is that all kinds of people have fled the cities. For the country, so people who have summer camps Boston people of summer camps in Massachusetts have all fled. To New Hampshire and New York City. People of summer camps in Vermont of all fled to Vermont. And they're not going back. And this is true across the rest of the country to and as we know, Basically, there are cities There are blue cities on Once you get into the country, they're generally Red. Not always, but that's how it is most so called blue states. Are actually in fact, red states that haven't have a big a couple of big blue cities in them. And so we're seeing all this movement and I don't know what this means for polling polling is rubbish anyway, Azad we were talking about yesterday I basically figure that there's a five point undervote. In the in the Trump poles. So when the official polls are saying That Trump is three points behind bite, and he's basically Ah point also ahead. But what does it actually mean for election? Now I look at all these. You know when you go to the general store, and it's hard getting into the parking lot, because there's all these obnoxious Massachusetts people or New York ear's in there. I'm thinking, what does this actually mean on Election day? For example, Trump lost New Hampshire by very tiny number of votes, probably mostly for Jalin from college towns like Daamoth College and UNH and A season and it's still being shown somewhat to my surprise as a as a swing state that could could go. It could go Republican or whatever. But what if all those Massachusetts people that's still at their summer camps and decide as you can do on Election day itself that they're going to be voting in New Hampshire. That's that's going to take that. I don't know. What kind of people Are fleeing America's cities. I think it's both liberals and conservatives. But you would have to bet that it's saying just because of the way the populations of those cities are that it's it's actually a lot more liberals fleeing liberal cities to conservative rural district And I don't know what that means. If those people are ah, in ahh, the voting in conservative polling precincts Akane November the third and so this is You know the way to approach them? Is this if you run into them, you know, pick a fight with these people or whatever. But look at this. They've been forced to choose between their value system. And reality, and they have decided that they can stick it that they can't New York is dead. This guy Cuomo, the governor is just another No, no, Whenever. Basically he's told those bars and restaurant owners that it's never going back to normal. So all the things that liberals like like about liberal life in great cities, like being able to go and see great music and Great dramatic entertainment. None of that is ever coming back. That's dead. Meanwhile, you've also got this violence you've got. There's a story in the paper today about how 300 homeless men Were housed in a hotel on the fancy shmancy Upper West Side ofthe New York sitting on all the hoity toity fancy shmancy Upper West Siders didn't like that, and they managed to get The city to take those 300 homeless people who are beginning to bother all the rich society matrons as they were perambulations down the street and said, No, no, no, you got to go and make the move somewhere else. The point. The point hair is You have to lean on these people to say, you understand. Now there is a price to be paid. However wealthy you are. There is a price to be paid to signing on to a ll. This nonsense. It may sound nice in some fluffy Honey Perfect world celebrating diversity. That's not who we are. These may all be perfectly nice of catchphrases for fluffy bunnies in an animated motion picture, But you you now understand that when you try to live it, it gets ugly. Pretty down fast, and we need you. You've recognized that. That's why It's November and you're sitting in your summer camp in New Hampshire or wherever the hell it is, and we need you to recognize that not just in reality. You voted with your feet. But now it's actually time toe vote with your pen or your ex.

But now facing pressure from some neighborhoods where those hotels air located, Mayor de Blasio says, the homeless will we moved back to shelters WN Mrs Morello, I've Iraq reports back in April, the mayor said moving homeless people out of crowded dorm style shelters would help control the pandemic. We will use those hotels aggressively as a tool. Within four months, the city relocated the majority of single adults 10,000 people. I some measures. The initiative has worked really well, according to WN Y. C's analysis, just 0.6% of homeless people. Passive positive for Kobe did over the past four weeks lower than the city's general population, but then an uproar in the Upper West Side. It has to do with hotels converted into residents in this bastion of progressive politics, taking it pretty hard line about the scores of homeless people, not in my neighborhood Upper Westside Edition This time unsavory images. Residents in Manhattan began complaining about drug use, lewd behavior and loitering after homeless men were moved into their neighborhoods. And last week, Mayor de Blasio set We're going to start the process of figuring out where we can get homeless individuals back into safe shelter facilities. And reduce the reliance on hotels. Hotels is certainly not where we want to be in general, and we're going to start that process immediately. Councilman Steven Levitt says the administration is being influenced by the backlash. It's not good policy. It's pretty simple to me. The science is dictated by the fact that we have a public health emergency so long as they have a public health emergency. This is the policy that should be in place. So far. The city has given out a few details about the plan, including when it will start Shelter providers were blindsided. Catherine Trapani represents those non profits were now running both their shelters and the hotels. But you don't want to happen is you say OK, original accomplishment and move everybody. Back to a congregant site would move all those protective measures. And then you're in the scenario where people may be a trick again. A group of Upper West Siders says they'll file a lawsuit unless the administration announces an action plan by tomorrow. Homeless advocates say they, too, will sue. If people are moved before it's safe to do so. Marella Iraq WMD I see news. Across New York prison officials have suddenly stopped testing for suspected drugs. Investigative reporter George Joseph has more in an internal memo. Last week, prison superintendents were ordered to stop using drug tests from a North Carolina company called Cerci. Authorities wouldn't say why they suspended the tests, but they did confirm that they're reviewing their procedures. State documents make clear that these tests are for screening, but officials weren't doing follow up tests in the lab to verify the results. And we're using the search. He tests alone to charge prisoners with drug possession. It is troubling. In any circumstance when you see a screening a presumptive test used for a final decision that's Dr Peter Stout. He's a forensic toxicologist in Houston, which had a similar scandal because of the way police were using these kinds of drug tests. They work by inducing a color coded chemical reactions. So they devised these little pouches and things that are useful in the field to add a little bit of drug into it, Shake it up, and it gives you in the field on indication of this, maybe heroin or this, maybe cocaine, he says. Agencies like these kits because they're cheap, fast and easy to use. But they also can produce false positives and can result in discipline such a solitary confinement or the loss of family visits. The prison authority hasn't said how many prisoners may have been disciplined because of search, he test results. Martin Garcia is a community coordinator for the prisoner's advocacy group worth rises. He says authorities should have had a higher scientific standard from the beginning that it being proactive. They're being reactive and you're home. You're harming people. You're harm If he was families, you're harming people that you claim to care about. And you know, responsible for Garcia is a former prisoner himself. He says. The way the prison system used these drug tests lead to mistrust and that your family is looking at you like if he really innocent that he just do this, like he messed up and he doesn't want to admit it. He's not changing Select. Now you have a distrust with your family, the company behind the test. Cerci didn't respond to requests for comment on New York's decision to stop using their products in the prison system. George Joseph W. N. Y C news LGBT.

At least we knew they could have been sent there and other places, but they had it down. They had the national Guard there they had to state troopers. They had the bunks. They had social distancing. They had a lot of bathrooms. Anybody who's been to Jacob Javits Convention said they got two cafeterias. You actually walk in and you go. I cannot believe they built a place. That is so Dig. It is like I mean, just it's just massive. That's a perfect place a the square footage and you know it's just you two. So I'm saying myself as these people are are saying to me Do the heavy lifting on this. I said, Absolutely. And, you know, Curtis, the guy was escaping all this because obviously we're beating up two black steel rightfully so, and Dermot Shea, the police commissioner who lives there right there and does nothing. Is Cuomo When he came into office, there were 30,000 beds in psychiatric hospitals in the state to deal with the mentally impaired people. There are now 3000 because he cut their budget. He's partly responsible for this. That's a state run facility. It isn't in an area Hutchings yards is like empty now, other than construction going on through I mean, there are no why, Well, there who the hell is going to be living there? It's a lot more of a neighborhood now because of the fact that it had all of those buildings, you know, apartment buildings and residential If there's nobody going to be let in, but the fact is that it's It's kind of a hike. And if you put everybody Paul, these people at the Javits Center And you bring in because you could bring in federal authorities, right?

Missing in action Mental health program of the mayor's wife was already so you bring in the homeless services them a little bit, and it's just such a good idea of mine. I got to tell you, I'm just carrying the message from the residents of the Upper West Side. This is a brilliant idea. Because you would have them all in one place and you could potentially a again It's the square footage is massive the height of it. So you are going to have great ventilation so you can keep these people away from each other. You know, you've got the socially distancing and then you could bring in people to help them. I mean, that's the thing you know, people, people sit there and go. Oh, well, look at these Upper West Siders. How dare that, you know they don't like anybody. They don't want these people in their neighborhood, but they're fine with them and other neighborhood. Well, the fact is that these people need help. Look at the Owner of these hotels, the one the Lucerne. Yeah, he's selling his mansion. He's infamous. He lives on Riverside Drive a few blocks away $1,000,000 mansion. I mean, $6 million. He selling it. He's leaving the neighborhood, but he obviously has decided to profit. From the demise of the homeless and emotionally disturbed and he's a friend of the boss. You aren't they all French Blasio. They have wined dined in pocket lined oblige. Oh, what about my idea? Of utilizing the unused space. It was all unused because there's not gonna be no show taken Senate Maybe. Maybe next summer, 1.8 million square foot 1.1 point on the West that we know it's already been configuration for what would have been needed hospital for coronavirus patients.

I was just thinking of something while you were you just said if it's not a permanent solution, but another thing that they I don't think anyone's realised where all the tourists they're not coming in. No more. That's all the much all our money. That's the city's money once the Bellagio is gone. And out the next mayor of coming to a wooden boy. Where's all the revenue from two years ago? Well, where that'll go on. It's all went well before the pandemic, So let's just look before the pandemic. The state was in hole to the tune of $12 billion. That's on Cuomo's time, and the city was in the hole to appoint in four billion. That was before the pandemic and they shouldn't have been in the hole. But oh boy has that that deficit increased exponentially. We're actually going to talk about this in the two o'clock hour because it is so fascinating just to sit here on the corner Curtis and watch Nothing go by life. Life is not going by its This city is a shell of itself, and they're expecting the house and Senate and Trump to bail them out. They're low on the chain of who's going to get the money Eventually. Obviously, both sides will agree on whether it's three trillion two trillion won in after whatever they come to. And state and city governments are going to be on the lower end of that. They will probably just be reimbursed for Corona virus expenses, and not for what they say is the debt and deficit that they are incurring on a daily basis. 1 808 for eight, ABC, New York's news and talk station download this 77 WNBC Mobile app now But when we talk about you working home in New Jersey, and possibly.

"There are Democrats that they voted, You know, they voted in for de Blasio, right and now whoa. They got a problem because three out of the 139 hotels being used to house the homeless in the city Are now in the upper Westside, and they are packed. So 10,000 homeless people, mostly men, mostly single men they have been put up in these, like some of them are like luxury hotels all throughout the city. And the the city is the city's paying quite a bit. So now theme is going to pay 75% of it. But the city is responsible for 25% of the bill, and what they have to pay is $175 per person They put they put up in the room, and then they're doubling up. The guy's so then you have two guys per hotel room. That's $350 a night in an otherwise what would have beat what would be an empty hotel. So you do the math. That's why this is such a lucrative thing for the hotels. And then on the Upper West side, guys, you are not going to believe this. Their housing these guys like around the corner from playgrounds around the corner from public schools. And so now you've got all these upper Westside progressive liberals that they're like. Yes, yes. All lie. Everybody matters and we need to be equal and we need to help. Oh, but not in my neighborhood. Oh, no, no, no, not in my neighborhood. Well, guess what now?

"Safe in my neighborhood anymore. In many New York City neighborhoods. These are not uncommon sites, but on the Upper West Side, it's the kind of stuff that you sort of imagines in New York in the seventies in the early eighties, that all of a sudden it's very president very in your face. That's 42 year old Abigail Boy.

A lot of young families like us out of the neighborhood for good on online petition with more than 3000 signatures and growing is demanding homeless residents be removed from hotels in the neighborhood. Parents Association at P. S. 87 asked its members to write elected officials and reporters demanding the same. Some shelter residents, like 55 year old Louis Pistorius say they know they're not welcome since he got to the Upper West Side in late July. Pastorius says strangers have been stopping him in the street, asking him what he's doing there. Why do you look at me like that? Because We are homeless we can and get on out to get our old place way have no choice, familiar centers. You, he says, used to install fiber optic cables before he was hit by a car. Now he uses a walker to get around and says he can't work. He's been in a shelter system for three years. They saying black lives matter, but they don't want black lives in this area. Many residents I spoke with said race had nothing to do with their opposition to the shelters. Several said they were sympathetic to calls to address systemic racism. And some say they even marched in recent black lives matter Protests, But Amanda Falk await social worker whose husband and son are black says Race has everything to do with it, she says. She finds the language he's seen being used in the Facebook group disturbing calling the residents creatures criminals inmate which is very fascinating one to me because it's not a crime to be homeless. Chatter about the neighbourhood changing has spilled over from online forums onto the street.

She and others who are advocating for the shelters removal say they would welcome homeless women and Children. It's the drug users and sex offenders living there. They don't want around. While we're talking were interrupted by a 25 year old named Klodian, who won't give his last name. He says Rock Moore's wrong The men should be allowed to stay quite frankly. Where else would they go? Start to argue Upper West Siders claim that they're so liberal that they want to help everybody, But then once it's in their own backyard, they say, get them out of here, and that's ludicrous.
