This is probably not how Mayor Eric Adams would like to be remembered.
According to a report from The New York Post, New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ proposed name for the Big Apple’s new migrant center, the Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Center, is not the name Google Maps decided to run with.
From The New York Post:
Instead of labeling the site a “Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Center,” Google Maps simply called it what it is: “Adams Tent City.”
The term popped up next to the red locator pin for the Icahn Stadium parking lot, where City Hall planned to unveil the new facility Tuesday afternoon.
Three giant white tents have been set up at the site, which is slated to temporarily house as many as 500 migrants before they enter the city’s overloaded shelter system.
Two tents are filled with rows of cots, while the third is outfitted with tables and chairs.
There are also six portable shower units, six portable bathroom units and a laundry.
It’s unclear whether the “Adams Tent City” label was chosen by the search giant or a user who chose to pin the location, using instructions available on Google Maps for how to “Add a missing place” or “Add your business.”
"Adams Tent City" was spotted on Google Maps on Tuesday at the site of NYC's new immigrant welcome center, created to deal with the influx of people the city is facing following @GovAbbott's choice to bus illegals to Dem strongholds.

After being contacted by The Post — and more than three hours following the publication of this report — a Google spokesperson said in a Tuesday evening email: “We’re aware of the situation and have removed the listing.”
Nearly 20,000 migrants have arrived on buses from the southern border since the spring.
