Police have put out a missing persons notice for 60-year-old Fazil Hamid, a resident of Park 79 at 117 West 79th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues.


Residents began moving into the affordable senior housing development (which was previously an illegal hotel) in March, and this week, an official opening celebration was held.

Hamid was reportedly last seen on Friday, July 21 at about 5:30 a.m. leaving the building.

He’s described as a male with a medium complexion, approximately 5’10” tall and 145 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black rain jacket, black jeans, and black boots.

As we mentioned in earlier reports, the converted building offers 77 studio apartments for “seniors earning at or below 50% area median income (AMI), including 24 homes for formerly homeless individuals.” According to a representative for Fairstead, Park 79’s new owner, the building is currently 92% leased and is expected to be at 100% very soon.
