Recently, Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal (D-Manhattan) told the NY Post that multiple homeless families with children were being housed at the Excelsior Hotel. Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously stated that he would end the practice of putting homeless families in hotels after three people were killed at a Ramada Inn that was doubling as a shelter in February.
How would you feel if you were staying at a hotel that also doubled as a homeless shelter?
