The Bedford-Atlantic Armory shelter in Crown Heights is most dangerous homeless shelter in Brooklyn and one of the three most dangerous in New York, according to a report by the Daily News.

The News reported that while the de Blasio administration claimed in its official report that there were no drug arrests inside the shelter in 2017, the Department of Homeless Services Police itself detailed 113 narcotics-related incidents at the armory that resulted in 51 arrests. The police records, obtained by the News, “raise reports raise serious questions about what the city is reporting to the public,” says the paper. Meanwhile, Greg Floyd, president of Teamsters Local 237, which represents the cops, said, “The numbers are even higher.”

    I was in the Bedford Atlantic Shelter a few years ago. The staff are worse than the clients. The case managers scream at you for no reason. Nobody in this place is helpful. You find out at 10:00 pm that your transferred & they expect you to leave immediately. This place needs to be CLOSED. I felt safer living on the streets than being in here. I’m sure years later it’s worse, nobody made any improvements. The dorms are HORRIBLE! Shelters are supposed to help you not try to destroy you. The security guards are USELESS! It looks like a building you would see in a horror movie. Dracula vs Frankenstein only it’s a real life haunted castle.
