Residents Can't Challenge City Plan to Move Homeless to Nearby Shelter
LVT Number: #31179
Downtown New Yorkers Inc., a not-for-profit organization of people who lived, worked, and owned property in NYC's Financial District (FiDi) sued NYC, seeking a declaration that the city's plan to open the Radisson Hotel Shelter was unlawful. The city planned to open the Radisson as a temporary homeless shelter and move 235 men currently residing at the Lucerne Hotel Shelter on the Upper West Side to the "proposed" Radisson Hotel Shelter. The organization also sought to restrain the city from implementing that relocation plan.
