83rd Street Affordable Housing

106-108 W. 83rd Street

We oppose placing temporary shelters without screening or curfews in residential areas as a substitute for proper treatment facilities. We believe that the buildings on West 83rd Street, located directly across from a playground and a public primary school, should be converted for use as affordable housing for families with school-age kids.

We believe that shelter and subways are not substitutes for mental health and drug rehabilitation programs. More hospital treatment facilities and drug rehabilitation programs are desperately needed along with more affordable housing. Low barrier shelters to house individuals who need to be treated in proper facilities will not work.
