DHS flyers on 1st Street



Workers recently removed the scaffolding and sidewalk bridge from 18 Second Ave.

While the sidewalk bridge was up, multiple people started living in encampments along the First Street side... (Earlier this year, the Daily News reported on one of the women who was living along here. Her pitbull reportedly bit a man who was tormenting her.)

On June 14, reps from the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) taped flyers to the remaining poles along here...



The flyers states that the DHS along with the NYPD and other city agencies "will complete a clean-up" of this area...



... and people need to vacate along with their belongings. Anything left behind by today may be discarded...



I don't recall seeing flyers like this before... the reader who shared this wondered, at the very least, if the city could have taped one to a flat surface to make it easier to read.

Incredible. I know this gives the homeless ample time to gather their things, but this flyer shows REBNY rules this stinking town.

I thought DHS existed to help people get shelter, not give them a warning akin to dropping leaflets before dropping bombs in Iraq. Does the flyer give any suggestion where to go for shelter?

Anyone know if this is actually legit?

It reads like it was posted by the "looking for a ... " guy.
