After a few years of neighborhood opposition, the Greenpoint warehouse 400 McGuiness is now operating as a men’s shelter. Yesterday New York Shitty published Council Member Steve Levin’s report that there has been a “soft opening.” The Department of Homeless Services previously told residents the shelter would open in September or October. Currently about twenty residents have moved in. Last we heard, this shelter will hold 200 beds.
