On Sun Aug 16th 2020, we went to the Upper Westside, from 72nd Street to 79th Street and Broadway, to find out what was happening in the neighborhood. We read many reports in the media and social media, that a lot of folks living in the area, were homeless temporally, placed by City in hotels, for a period of 6 months, mostly single men.
The Area residents who spoke with did not want to be on camera, or have their name mentioned, told us that the homeless is an issue, a lot of them are using drugs, drinking on the streets, panhandling on each corner, one of the people you see in the video interview mentioned one of the homeless person’s broke her stores, window with a brick.
Another business owner told us 5-6 homeless people hang outside her store, and use the street internet, which is located right across here store on a regular basis, and a lot of the customers and foot traffic has stopped due to them hanging out in front of the store.
Few other business owners told us a lot of people are going and shopping elsewhere, and there business is down another 25%, due to the homeless moving in the area and hanging out till late day and night.
