Where the most street homeless are
As shown on the map, homeless encampments are mostly concentrated in Manhattan, with Midtown-Midtown South being the worst of all neighborhoods. The good news? So far, only 402 encampments have reported in the neighborhood, 201 fewer than 2017. West Village is another neighborhood that has seen more homeless encampments than others, with 275 reported in 2017 and 260 reported in 2018 as of October 31st, 2018. The number goes down as the neighborhoods get farther away from the city center. In Brooklyn, however, things seem to be worsening in Stuyvesant Heights, with 56 homeless encampments reported in 2017 and 130 reported in 2018. Other neighborhoods that have seen an increase in the number of encampments include East Williamsburg, Dumbo-Vinegar Hill-Downtown Brooklyn-Boerum Hill, and Prospect Heights.
So this study, using 311 call data regarding homeless encampments, seems to show that while Manhattan numbers are skyrocketing, Queens homeless numbers are on a steep decline. (They cut up and mashed together neighborhoods in a weird way, though.)

There are a lot more homeless in Queens than that map shows. If they are going off of 311 call data that is going to be way off. People don't call 311 anymore for stuff like that because nothing is ever done but the call being marked closed.
Who knows how this city does any of it "statistics" sometimes, it isbeyond me. But I will say in regards to Brooklyn. For the borough that is supposed to be so great, the place to live, etc, the last time I was there, so much of Brooklyn is filthy & dirty (more so than Queens), and while they have amazing brownstones, they also have their fare amount of third world crap and other shitty dwellings as well, their crime is much more higher than Queens and they do have a big amount of homeless and homeless shelters and now this report. So I don't get Brooklyn being so damn expensive and such a great place. Sure there are some nice neighborhoods, but overall, I find it very dirty and extremely noisy. None of this justifies the expense of living there,just another real estate con game and the hipsters being played fools.
there are less encampments in queens because Mayor Dumblasio and his pals are turning every hotel into a shelter. why make an encampment when the city will foot the bill for a room?
Just look up "Homeless Industrial Complex" ... or "Shelter Industrial Complex"
It looks like they only reviewed data for Manhattan & Brooklyn?
I would not rely on the 311 calls for an authoritative statement of neighborhood conditions. As an activist, civic leader, and data geek I come armed with reams of data: 311 complaint report numbers, follow-ups with NCOs (which are NOT logged in 311) and reviews of activity maps.
Consider, for an example, the Staten Island Ferry terminal. While the homeless are not "encamped" there, they are certainly living there. Commuters are interested in catching the boat, and run past - no stopping for 311 call; maybe a complaint to security.
Anon 2 nails it. Ozone and South Ozone has about 8 last time I checked, including 2 hotels right next to each other,which I compare it to Lewis Black's joke when he saw a starbucks across the street from another starbucks and described it as the end of the universe.
And Brooklyn is filthy, but not where you would expect it most. Just look at NY Shitty's archives. Williamsburgh, Greenpoint and the most recently adopted locale for free-spending hipshits Bushwick has tons of blight and trash lying around by their tower buildings, craft breweries and cafes. But I think they like it because it fulfills their vicarious fantasy of living in a dangerous slum, which includes tasteful commissioned graffiti of course.
In one year the homeless encampments doubled in South Queens? What? Is Manhattan dumping the homeless in Queens now? I wonder who could be behind a maneuver like that? Wanna guess?
"much more higher" Joe? C'mon! Anyway. You're right about NYC statistics. They could save a bunch of money by firing that whole department or getting rid of the contractors they're overpaying to give us fake news. People can see the deterioration in the neighborhoods without the phony numbers. Damn it Joe. Take a night course.
If the homeless do not have nearby families, they should be take upstate. We need to reinstitutionalize them. The keft wants to increase ou rpopulation density, just like STalin did with his collectivization. They want us to feel guilty about not paying taxes by surrounding us with homelss. But homeless predominantly suffer from schizophranic hallucinations, some genetic, some cause by disease, other brain burnt from drugs. Meds may help them, but if they accidentally fall off their meds, the wander. So implant an RFID tag on them as well as a clozapene infusion pump.
So what about this College Point homeless shelter avenging the 1980s FLushing Armory?
Guilaini endorsed Valoney over Saprun like his Liucycle.
Vallone is selling us to the Democratic Socialists
just so he can get a new job after term limits.
If you are encamped in a shelter it does not count.
My chauffeur uses these maps when he drives me around the city in my Rolls Royce. I've instructed him to avoid the purple areas as if the bubonic plague were there.
There are less in queens because they cannot panhandle to tourists.
In the city there are so many people and new faces that they can panhandle or street preform for money. In smaller areas with less tourist you'll be seeing the same faces more often and making less of an income.
I see the same vet on my way to work every morning by the sweet homes shelter in LIC.
He's making a good amount daily because of all the traffic there. Since I see him every morning I no longer pay his paycheck. It really is a 9-5 job for him. No matter the weather he is there.
You are seeing the trendy hipster places in Brooklyn and Queens with more of them because here are more tourists in those areas to beg a dollar from. In my opinion.
High traffic areas!
The data presented is for each neighborhood throughout the city.
Just reported to 311.com and a complaint to the Mayor's office about a homeless woman who showed up in North East Queens bordered with Valley Stream Long Island. What I found strange was there is no train service for miles and she had 5 push type grocery shopping carts with her. There is no way she took the bus with all those carts which had bags in them. As someone mentioned I think someone dumped that lady here. As you never see homeless people like that here in my neighborhood.
I bet I know who that lady is. I have seen her (or someone like her) frequently walking in the city for years, no matter what season. It's the saddest thing in the world, I am sure besides cans and bottles she is pushing everything she owns in those carts.
In fact, she even made the news. The NY Post called her presence a blight, but she is only the symptom not the bug of the city's homeless crisis.
I wouldn't be surprised if this fucking city moved her to Queens. It would prove my theory that homeless people are being gerrymandered.
The real bum in the video is the repulsive woman walking with her phone who shoved her like she didn't exist.
More tourists $$$ in Manhattan. But Jamaica, Woodside, Forest Hills, Woodhaven, and Ozone Park have a sprinkling of encampments too.
Especially Woodhaven. Who would have thunk it?
The city is gerrymandering the homeless to southeast Queens to turn it into an opportunity zone for vulture investor plunder.
Politicians, academics and homeless are hallucinatory schizophrenics. Homeless are just failed politicians and academics. They all seem to know what people should be doing with their lives, but never get their own in order.
Reality Hop is fulla shit, misinformed or in co-hoots with the lousy mayor.
The database not accurate, its rigged to look like Queens and Brooklyn isn't taking its share. Must be 1000s of homeless are in Forest Hills, Corona Park, Jamaica.
Yes all the other encampments & diversity "sprinkling" all over the subways, ally's, doorways, streets in Queens too.
Shit you cant even get on the GCP from Roosevelt ave, the homeless & tranny whores wanna jump in (or on) your car.
Q:What's RealityHop's special interest to create a webpage of such false, bogus booyaa ?
INDENTURED SERVITUDE IN COLONIAL NEW YORK, Samuel McKee, Jr, Quarterly Journal of the New York State Historical Association, Vol. 12, No. 2, p. 149: Although some forms of indentured servitude are of much older origin than the 16th century, the beginning of the custom as practised in the North American colonies can be located in England during the reign of Elizabeth. England was in the midst of an unemployment crisis and in an effort to correct the situation Parliament passed a series of extremely harsh poor laws. The able-bodied unemployed were not only unkindly but brutally treated. In addition to the crime of unemployment, there was a long list of petty crimes punishable by hanging, prison, or the lash. Many of these crimes might be prompted by the desperation of a man with no work and no money. As a result of the general situation in England, many persons were amenable to any change which might decrease their wretchedness. This general wretchedness plus two other factors probably produced the American indentured servant in his elemental form. The first factor was another Elizabethan Poor Law whereby an unskilled, unemployed laborer could be bound out to a master for a specified period, and the second factor was the idea of transporting political, religious, and economic offenders. With the advent of English colonies with their need of settlers and laborers, it seemed a natural development to persuade or to compel the undesirable surplus to migrate to the colonies under a form of contractual labor. It seemed equally natural that those who enjoyed the benefits of the indentured servant's labor should pay for the passage.
The Ordinance of Labourers 1349 sought to increase the available workforce following the Black Death in England by making unemployment an offence. In the Vagabonds Act 1547, Edward VI ordained that "if anyone refuses to work, he shall be condemned as a slave to the person who has denounced him as an idler. The master has the right to force him to do any work, no matter how vile, with whip and chains. If the slave is absent for a fortnight, he is condemned to slavery for life and is to be branded on forehead or back with the letter S"
Vagabonds Act 1572 passed under Elizabeth I, defined a rogue as a person who had no land, no master, and no legitimate trade or source of income; it included rogues in the class of vagrants or vagabonds. If a person were apprehended as a rogue, he would be stripped to the waist, whipped until bleeding, and a hole, about the compass of an inch about, would be burned through the cartilage of his right ear with a hot iron. A rogue who was charged with a second offense, unless taken in by someone who would give him work for one year, could face execution as a felony. A rogue charged with a third-offense would only escape death if someone hired him for two years. The Vagabonds Act of 1572 decreed that "unlicensed beggars above fourteen years of age are to be severely flogged and branded on the left ear unless someone will take them into service for two years; in case of a repetition of the offence, if they are over eighteen, they are to be executed, unless someone will take them into service for two years; but for the third offence they are to be executed without mercy as felons." The same act laid the legal groundwork for the enforced exile (transportation) of "obdurate idlers" to "such parts beyond the seas as shall be [...] assigned by the Privy Council". At the time, this meant exile for a fixed term to the Virginia Company's plantations in America. Those who returned unlawfully from their place of exile faced death by hanging.
We need to get the vagrants to sign confessions of judgement agreeising to participate in Antarctic dishabilement studies. Either that or have them colonize Mars.
England's Ordinance of Laborers 1349 and Egyptian Vagabonds Acts of 1530 and 1572 were intended to run off Romanichal Gypsys. --
England & Scotland knew what happened to the Roman Empire when it opened it gates to crap.
It seems Liberals refuse (or are incapable) of learning from history's biggest mistakes. Liberals are also incapable of accepting evil, dishonesty and danger exists.
Its a recent mental disease incubated & handed by our educational institutions. Sadly over half our people under age 30 and others have been infected by it.
This is only going to get worse as the older educated Americans become outnumbered.
Driving westbound on the LIE heading to Maurice there is a large group of men staying under the road. With all the shelters on Queens Blvd and the one in Maspeth why are they sleeping under it? What is wrong with the deblasio-banks shelters? Some even sleeping in the tall brush along the LIE. This is growing in numbers. It speaks volumes on who really is in those shelters and why so many choose the streets.
They are schizophrenics who imagine things, especially enemies, so they keep wandering.
If the left is so eager to implant contraceptive infusion pumps in school girls, why are
they so opposed to implanting clozapene pumps in the vagrants. When they fall off their meds, they get lost and wander. It takes forever to find out where they came from and return them, but if they had a GPS chip, they could be returned immediately. Afraid this will be misused? Then do it only after they get lost three times.
