Blissville residents and elected officials came together on May 14 and 15 to protest the siting of the third homeless shelter in the small Long Island City community.
These protests come in the wake of the May 16 closure of the Fairfield Inn, the hotel which the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) plans to convert into a 300-person shelter. This new shelter, located at 52-34 Van Dam St., would be the third in Blissville within the span of a few months.
