NYC houses homeless in $174-night hotels

April 21, 2018

New York City plans to spend $1.1 billion to house some of the city’s 60,000 homeless in Manhattan hotels over the next three years.
“Our spending on hotels is absolutely alarming. It’s one reason we have [the Department of Homeless Services] on our budget watch list,” NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer said when asked about the contracts by the New York Post.
The average spent on a hotel room will be $174 per night, city officials said.
One of the hotels, on West 58th Street, is adjacent to the most expensive condo tower in New York City, One57. The hotel will be converted into rooms for 150 homeless people and is scheduled to open in April.
New York press is reporting that some owners in One57—where apartments sell in the $30 million to $50 million range—are not happy with having the homeless shelter as a close neighbour.
