NYC demonstrators protest decision to kick 300 homeless out of Upper West Side hotel after wealthy l

Protesters and a New York City council member have slammed Mayor Bill de Blasio over the city's decision to backtrack and remove nearly 300 homeless people from a Manhattan hotel after residents complained and threatened a lawsuit.

Hundreds of homeless men have been temporarily living in the Lucerne hotel on the Upper West Side since July as part of de Blasio's plan to stop the spread of COVID-19 in shelters across the city. 

The upscale hotel is just one of a handful across the city that is currently sheltering homeless men and women as part of de Blasio's plan.
