Transitional Homeless Shelter Planned for 1763-1771 Amsterdam Ave Between W 148th St and W 149th St.

The NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) will discuss their proposed plan to Community Board 9 on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 6:30 pm.

NYC DHS, along with a developer, intends to open a transitional shelter in an already oversaturated community. Based on the originally published information, this was initially slated to be residential housing. This site is the location of the funeral for Malcolm X.

Community Board 9 needs residential affordable housing. Why was this site changed to transitional housing?

The Greater Harlem Coalition investigated where homeless shelters are located in NYC. Here is a map of homeless shelter concentrations.

The Sugar Hill Concerned Neighbors Group (SHCNG) supports permanent affordable housing. We need other areas of New York City to do their part.

Come and make your voice heard!
