New York’s Upper West Side — likely the most liberal neighborhood in the U.S. — organized and hired a lawyer to get 300 homeless men evicted from the Lucerne Hotel, where the NYC social services department had moved them as refugees from COVID-19.
Neighbors complained the men “menaced” them, urinated, defecated, and used drugs in the streets. Is the ouster of the homeless a triumph of American civic action, or a deep insight into the actual morality of America’s “compassionate” Progressives?
