Crown Heights & the Homeless Facility: Video Report

August 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The dispute over the proposed intake facility for the homeless at the armory in Crown Heights continues, although the city has made some concessions:

On Thursday, Heather J. Janik, a spokeswoman for the city’s homeless services agency, said an additional intake center would be opened in Manhattan to lessen demand at the proposed Brooklyn site. She said it would open “in tandem” with the new Brooklyn intake center, at the same time that the current central intake center, the Bellevue Men’s Shelter on the East Side, closed down. The site of the new center in Manhattan, which will be open 24 hours, has not been determined.

Local officials and residents want more. Here’s a video report produced by the New York Sun.
