New York Shitty Day Starter: 400 McGuinness Is Open For Business
A person we’ll call “M” writes (via comments on this post):
its open now. boyfriend met a guy who showed him an ID, assured him that the shelter was for people who have jobs. he was rushing back to beat the 10pm curfew. saw him the next night, with another guy from the shelter, a little more drunk than the night before, but still personable. so, not sure about the september opening date, unless i slept through august (which i was trying to do).
After some (somewhat) polite nut-twisting (this) I got an answer from our City Councilman. Here it is:
So there have you. Thanks Mr. Levin.
UPDATE, August 15, 2012: It has been brought to my attention that a temporary Certificate of Occupancy was issued for this property in July.
Looks like someone dropped the ball.
