Public hearing on proposed homeless shelter
NEW YORK (WABC) -- An anxious crowd of people in Brooklyn voiced their opposition to a new homeless shelter proposed in their neighborhood.
Residents packed a public hearing in Carroll Gardens voicing their concerns over the shelter which would be built on West 9th Street in the middle of a blossoming block, not far from a day care center.
The shelter would house 170 men.
The building was originally supposed to be high-end rental units.
When the apartments failed to fill up, the owner decided to rent the building to the city.
