Hell’s Kitchen Board Implores City To Reduce Hotel Shelters

HELL’S KITCHEN, NY — A Hell’s Kitchen community board renewed a call this week for the city to reduce the density of temporary homeless shelters in the neighborhood, saying increased crime and drug use associated with the facilities was causing a public health crisis in the area.

Members of Community Board 4 strained to distinguish the situation in Hell’s Kitchen from similar battles over the pandemic-era hotel shelters that have played out in other neighborhoods, saying they objected only to the concentration of shelters around West 36th and 37th streets and were open to relocating the shelters to elsewhere in the district.

“This is not NIMBYism. This is a common-sense request for a reduction,” board member Maria Ortiz said, using the acronym for “not in my backyard.”

The board voted unanimously Wednesday to send a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea and Department of Homeless Services

Ten drop-off sites are located along four miles of Hudson River Park, which stretches along the waterside from 59th Street down to Battery Park City.

The 10 sites now open for the fall include three new ones: the Pier 96 Boathouse at West 55th Street, Pier 66 at West 26th Street and Pier 46 at Charles Street. The sites are open every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., accepting any of the following items: fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds and filters, tea bags, rice, pasta, bread, cereal, eggs, nutshells and flowers.

2 New NYPD Commanders Take Over In Midtown, Hell’s Kitchen

MIDTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — New police commanders have taken the reins in the two precincts that cover much of Midtown and Hell’s Kitchen.

The Midtown North precinct, covering the northern part of Midtown as well as Hell’s Kitchen between 42nd and 59th streets, will be led by Deputy Inspector Megan C. O’Malley.

She succeeds Inspector Mark Iocco, who is moving to Patrol Borough Manhattan South, which supervises nearly a dozen Manhattan precincts.

Meanwhile, the 10th Precinct, which includes the southern stretch of Hell’s Kitchen, Hudson Yards and Chelsea, is now led by Captain Robert Gault. Former commander Deputy Inspector Kevin Coleman is moving to Patrol Borough Bronx, the NYPD said.

Both commanders assumed their new posts in late September.

O’Malley comes to Manhattan from Brooklyn’s 76th Precinct, covering Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Red Hook. A more than 10-year NYPD veteran, she had previously worked in Central Brooklyn’s 70th Precinct,

Police Seek Suspects In Hell’s Kitchen Homicide, Stabbing

HELL’S KITCHEN, NY — Police appealed to the public Tuesday for help finding suspects in two separate stabbings in Hell’s Kitchen, one of which left a man dead.

The first incident happened around 10:09 p.m. on Aug. 22, when a 21-year-old man stabbed a 24-year-old man in the chest during a fight in front of 790 11th Ave., part of the Clinton Towers complex.

The victim, identified as Terrell Wigfall, was brought to Mount Sinai West Hospital, where he died from his injuries on Sept. 16. Wigfall had been a promising basketball player at Bronx Community College before apparently leaving the team last year, the New York Post reported.
