Comptroller John Liu and City Council members are looking into the
Department of Homeless Services’ dealings with developer Shimmie Horn
and his plans to convert several buildings in Brooklyn into homeless
shelters, the New York Post and the Brooklyn Eagle reported.
A previous Post investigation had found that Horn could earn millions
of dollars with such projects in East New York and Brownsville
One of the most controversial sites for these plans is at 400
McGuiness Boulevard in Greenpoint, where the community has been protesting
plans for a homeless shelter for the past year.
