A New York Supreme Court judge rejected an injunction request submitted by opponents of the forthcoming Bowery Residence Committee homeless shelter to prevent it from opening Friday. DNAinfo reported that the judge did not find the shelter’s large expected occupancy (it will have 200 beds) in violation of local law, and said the building, at 127 West 25th Street, can open for occupancy starting Friday. The injunction was submitted by the Chelsea Flatiron Coalition, one of several groups opposing the homeless shelter, to prevent the building from opening before a hearing with the Department of Homeless Services July 22. The hearing is part of a suit filed by the coalition last October. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who represents the surrounding district, was one of the most outspoken opponents of the homeless shelter and was disappointed by the ruling.”While the judge has ruled on the request for an injunction, until the entire case is resolved the Department of Homeless Services should continue to wait for a final ruling,” Quinn said, through a spokesperson.
