Mayor De Blasio’s New York City placed at least six homeless pedophiles, all of whom were parole for child sex crimes, at a luxury Upper West Side hotel located just one block away from an elementary school playground.
Records show that the city of New York may have violated state law by housing several homeless people convicted of sex crimes against children near a school.
Convicted sexual offenders were housed while still on parole in a luxury hotel a block away from an elementary school playground, which is an apparent violation of state law, according to the New York Post.
Ten sex offenders are staying in a single hotel — the Belleclaire, which is just one block from the playground of PS 87.
New York state law prohibits high-risk sex offenders on probation or parole from “knowingly entering into or upon” schools or other facilities “primarily used” by children if a minor is present, which has been interpreted by courts to mean that they must stay 1,000 feet away.
Due to increasingly squalid conditions on the Upper West Side, including two new homeless shelters packed with junkies and registered sex offenders, longtime dwellers are departing the Big Apple with no plans to ever return.
Crimes committed over the past several days would’ve been unheard of a year ago in the quiet neighborhood that’s home to Lincoln Center and restaurants by Daniel Boulud. A 40-year-old woman was randomly stabbed in the 72nd Street subway station at noon Thursday; a 56-year-old man was sucker-punched while dining outdoors with his wife Wednesday night; photos were posted online of a man masturbating on the steps of the New York Historical Society; and onlookers witnessed an apparent overdose in the aisle of a Duane Reade across the street from the Lucerne Hotel.
The Lucerne, at 79th Street and Amsterdam, and the Hotel Belleclaire, at 76th Street and Broadway, were recently converted into homeless shelters, with nearly 300 vagrants between them. Ten of the men are registered sex offenders, including convicted rapists, child molesters and child-porn possessors — all living a block away from a school playground. (NYP)
