Migrants are now arriving daily, in the months-long relocation effort that has overwhelmed city shelters, Mayor Eric Adams said Thursday.
NYC’s announcement about the tent facilities include few specifics except the first will be set up at Orchard Beach in the Bronx and that migrants will likely spend between one and four days in the facilities.
The announcement does not say how many beds will be provided or what the costs might be, but included an image of rows of cots lined up inside an image of one of the temporary structures.
The caption for the photo read: “A past example of what the inside of a Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Center will look like that would only shelter single adults. Families would be sheltered in a humanitarian relief center with a different setup.”
