Lucerne Residents Can Stay, For Now

  Last modified on June 4th, 2021

The city has again reversed its decision regarding the living situation of the over 200 men temporarily residing at the Lucerne Hotel. Just about a week after Judge Debra James ruled to move the temporary residents to the Radisson Hotel in Lower Manhattan – another judge, State Appellate Division Judge Anil Singh – decided they can stay, for now.

The case was brought about by some of the Lucerne’s temporary residents along with Downtown New Yorkers, Inc, whose members have been fighting against the relocation.

Theresa Vitug of Downtown New Yorkers stated “We are extremely gratified that the court recognized the seriousness of this situation and the potential harm a move will cause to both the homeless men and the Lower Manhattan neighborhood.”

A panel of five judges are expected to hear arguments from both sides again on December 14.

In the meantime, those who have been most vocal continue to voice their arguments and concerns.
