Kingsboro Psychiatric Homeless Shelter – Breaking Ground building.
781 Clarkson Ave, Brooklyn NY 11203.
Monday, March 20.
Morning event 8am – 10am
Looks like ‘voicing concerns’ not effective at this point.
The planned Homeless Shelters at the property of 781 Clarkson Ave, Brooklyn NY 11203 681 Clarkson Ave, Brooklyn NY 11203 691 Albany Ave, Brooklyn NY 11203 Is a civil rights issue where NYC/NYS is trying to dump violent homeless criminals in a area of East Flatbush Brooklyn that the population is 95% black residents. The area already has almost 10 homeless shelters within a 2 block radius (and many pre war apartment buildings rented to shelters) Way more than ANY and and every area in the entire New York City. NYC/NYS would never dump this amount of violent homeless in… Read more »
Plus tens of millions dollars more a year publicly funded by NYC/NYS for Breaking Ground to “Manage” the homeless shelter.
And to hire security IN the shelter, so its residents only do crime outside of the shelter by the surrounding blocks.
And then say it’s a safe shelter because most of the crime is done by surrounding blocks but not by the address of the homeless shelter.
Lots more fraud.
It is incumbent on ALL of us to join this and point out how this new shelter will bring more crime and violence. The organizers do not live here and do not understand how we will be affected by this. EVERY one of us should join even for a few minutes on the way to work. Do not think if you live in central Crown Heights you are safe. This inordinate amount of homeless people will be spread all over. Our young couples and grandchildren living in that area future is at stake. The chinese did not want this monster… Read more »
I encourage everyone to make their own decision on whether to attend the walk-through. For me personally, I recommend AGAINST being part of a cheap PHOTO-OP that will be used as WOKE PROPAGANDA to enrich a Million Dollar Homeless Shelter Provider at the expense of Black, Jewish and other local residents.
I would sooner attend a walk- through of the NYC Subways,
Riker’s Island or Albany Ave at 2 am to show how safe they really are.
(please email me your name to organize against this)
AND THEN WE WONDER WHY THERE ARE BOYS BEING BEATEN UP ON OUR STREETS
THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA
Wow. I was excited as I thought it was a. Kosher Jewish Shelter. Maybe there already is one but in other cities the homeless Jews end up at Christian related shelters. Many of the Jewish Family services are staffed by individuals unaware of Jewish homelessness. Most communities have food pantries but little is available for homelessness for the traditional Jew.
Not all homeless are mentally ill, especially nowadays. If the powers that be are just being “yotzi” with a community walk through, we can turn it into a positive, by increasing the awareness and observance of Sheva Mitzvos among the residents. If c”v there are Jewish residents, we can be m’karev them.
We can mekarev them as well when they get out of our neighborhood. Its better that they hear about Sheva Mitzvos from some one else than have our boys being beaten up on the way home from Yeshiva or God forbid something happen to a young wife on her way home from an event.Nice thought but sorry its a no go
I am also a resident
Unlike the family homeless shelter by 267 Rogers Avenue. Which only has a small amount of crime.
This homeless shelter is specifically designed for the emotionally unstable, heroin addicted mentally ill, many with schizophrenia.
These people need medical treatment in a hospital. Not dumped on our streets to do violent crime.
The city is violating their rights by funding a project to dump the mentally ill in a community of families. Where they can hurt themselves and others that live nearby.
There is also the option to go on Monday from between 3pm and 5pm to this.
The residents of Crown Heights and East Flatbush. The Jewish community, 99% which are law abiding citizens don’t want this new crime shelter. The black community, 99% which are law abiding citizens don’t want this new crime shelter. Nobody here wants more crime shelters except for the CEO of Breaking Ground that makes 500k a year from our tax dollars. We need to unite with our neighbors in the black community, and together like we have done in the past when important issues that affect is all have came up. Together the Jewish and Black community to tell New York… Read more »
Why is Breaking Ground. A legal Non-Profit that receives billions in public taxpayer funds including over 400 million just to build this Breaking Ground Homeless development by 781 Clarkson Ave & it’s property. (Many tens of millions more a year funded to “Manage” the homeless shelter) Withholding the legally recorded Zoom meeting video of local residents (both local Hasidic and African American residents and home owners) emotionally expressing their safety concerns of crime that this homeless development may bring. And their safety concerns regarding the half a dozen violent homeless shelters CURRENTLY in operation near Clarkson Ave & Albany Ave.… Read more »
Community Board 9 (which records and publishes online) all their zoom meetings and meetings that they organize with other organizations & non profits.
Needs to answer why out of all their meetings, just the meeting that they did recently with “Breaking Ground” was not published online.
Spoiler alert. On that zoom meeting there were almost a dozens local residents of different races, genders and religions. Residents of the East Flatbush district in Brooklyn, saying how yet another homeless shelter will bring the high crime rate much worse.
We should team up with the black community in crown heights. And protest protest protest!
I will commit to bring at least 10 of my Caribbean American , and a additional 10 Jewish neighbors to such a protest.
Hmmm, teaming up is actually a really good and do-able idea. Imagine the photo – op the papers would drool over: Hundreds, maybe more, black and Jewish residents of East Flatbush and Crown Heights visibly linking arms in protest of this dangerous madness on the part of self-serving “public servants.” These “servants,” for the most part, only come here to hold their meetings and then ram their oh-so-humanitarian ideas down our throats. Here’s another idea:Remember their names, everyone.. Most of them dream of one day being elected to public office so they can further get their names enshrined together with… Read more »
