Shelters are styes
From the Daily News:
City homeless shelters had a whopping 21,401 open code violations at the end of 2015, according to a new scorecard issued by Mayor de Blasio's office Monday.
The Shelter Repair Scorecard documents conditions at each of the hundreds of shelters around the city — showing buildings plagued by problems like vermin, leaks, and peeling paint.
Most of the open code violations — 14,418, or 70% of the total — were found at 265 cluster shelters, where homeless people are housed in apartment building units rented out by the city.
Another 6,984 violations were found at non-cluster shelters.
