NYC relocating migrant tent city to Randall’s Island
NYPost ^ | 10/04/2022

The Big Apple will relocate — and downsize — its first tent city for migrants from the Bronx to Randall’s Island due to flooding issues, according to City Hall.

The city has ditched the already-under construction site on Orchard Beach that would have housed 1,000 migrants and will instead erect tents to accompany half that number on Randall’s Island, Mayor Adams said in a Monday night statement.

The move was prompted by flooding at the Bronx site following this weekend’s rain storms. The cost of flood mitigation efforts would be more expensive than the cost of relocation, a City Hall spokesperson told The Post.

“New York City Emergency Management determined that … relocating the Orchard Beach humanitarian relief center to Randall’s Island is the most efficient and effective path forward, and work is underway to make this move,” Adams said in a statement. “This new location is less prone to flooding, is closer to public transportation, and will provide temporary respite to 500 asylum seekers.”

How well do tents keep you warm during a New York winter?

Downsizing?

Sounds like they’re running low on illegals. Gov. DeSantis needs to resupply them with more.

So no one took even a cursory look at the location to see if it was prone to flooding before deciding to build a tent city there? And, they spent tax-payer money to construct about half of the project before abandoning it in favor of another location.

The incompetence of those on the left is just mind-blowing. Yet voters will go to the polls in November and vote a straight Democrat ticket before going home to complain about the high prices and crime. Between the incompetence and corruptness (and pure evil) that is nothing the left can’t screw-up or destroy.

Oh, due to ‘flooding.’ Not due to them being here ILLEGALLY or anything...

I was listening to NY talk radio host Curtis Sliwa the other day. He was Adams opponent for Mayor. Sliwa was talking about how the area the tent was in floods frequently and since there was a tropical storm on the way, it would probably flood.

That’s the difference between a thinking conservative and an idiot liberal.

LOL right next to the sewage treatment plant. When the wind shifts, it will be horrible.

Why Randalls Island and not Rykers?

Randall’s Island has the FDNY academy, sports venues, and large lawns for concerts. These migrants are going to love life playing soccer all day while living off tax dollars.
