Pheffer Amato Statement on Proposed Homeless Shelter on Beach 101st Street

The Wave first reported a new homeless shelter coming to address 226 Beach 101st Street. The shelter will house roughly 120 single men, blocks away from multiple schools in the area.

Here is a statement from Assemblywoman Pheffer-Amato.

“The proposed homeless shelter on 101st Street is a completely misguided and irresponsible plan. Our families have been through so much to rebuild our neighborhoods from the effects of Hurricanes Irene and Sandy and still are not whole- we do not need additional hurdles,” Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Rockaway Beach) said.“We have done more than our fair share in offering essential services to those in need and it’s time for the city to stop using our peninsula to solve its problems.”
