A Temporary Shelter at The Lucerne Hotel

  Last modified on July 30th, 2020

The Lucerne Hotel, located at 201 West 79th Street on the corner of Amsterdam Avenue, will soon be utilized as a “temporary de-densification site” to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at two East Village shelters. The anticipated move-in date is July 27, at which point 283 residents of these shelters will be relocating to The Lucerne. It has not yet been determined how long the stay will last.

The residents will be coming from Kenton Hall Men’s Shelter, which houses “homeless men on methadone maintenance,” and from the Third Street Men’s Shelter, which “helps tenants to work toward health, sobriety, housing, and jobs.”

This news was announced in an email from Helen Rosenthal, and the upcoming shelter site will be overseen by Project Renewal. The organization will provide more than 50 staff members dedicated to operations, social services and security.

Project Renewal will also supply the Lucerne with masks for residents and staff, and will provide residents with three daily meals delivered to their doors. The non-profit states that all incoming residents will have gotten tested for COVID-19, and those who test positive will not be housed at The Lucerne.

Project Renewal has also informed the 283 oncoming residents of their “Good Neighbor Policy”, and states that those who do not adhere to it will be transferred to other shelter sites.
