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.”
