Three weeks after confronting New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio at the gym, a coalition of advocates for the city’s homeless took their fight to his home.
Hundreds of homeless New Yorkers and advocates for the homeless marched through the Upper East Side on Wednesday and held a rally at Gracie Mansion calling on de Blasio to commit to the creation of 30,000 units of affordable housing — 24,000 through new construction — dedicated for the homeless. The march and rally was organized by advocacy groups such as Coalition for the Homeless, VOCAL-NY and Housing Works.
