Bill de Blasio’s New York City is facing even more challenges in recent weeks, with a homeless camp erected under the FDR Drive that looks more like Los Angeles than Manhattan.
“A sprawling shantytown under the FDR Drive in Lower Manhattan has emerged as the latest gathering spot for New York’s homeless people — and it’s turned the area into what one longtime resident called ‘a scene out of a zombie movie,’” reports the NY Post.
“There are even barbecues over which several residents were cooking breakfast Monday morning,” adds the newspaper.
“They build little houses. They were just building things with the orange barricades. It’s nuts!” added one local. “At night it’s like a scene out of a zombie movie. It gets real intimidating! I won’t come out here at night.”

ANARCHY in NYC: ‘Black Lives Matter’ Leader Accuses NYPD of Acting Like ‘Babies’ Over Protests
A prominent leader of the New York chapter of ‘Black Lives Matter’ accused the NYPD of acting “like a bunch of babies” in response to the anti-police protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
“You had [Sen.] Tim Scott [R-S.C.], you know, on the Republican side saying, ‘You know what? Cops aren’t doing what they need to do. Things need to change.’ You have Democrats saying, ‘Cops aren’t doing what they need to do. Things need to be changed,'” Newsome added.
“What are they doing?” asked Newsome. “They’re responding like a bunch of big babies. They’re whining. They’re complaining: ‘Oh, our morale is low. Oh, I’m sad! People don’t have faith in us.'”
“I believe in The Bible it says, ‘gird up thy loins.’ Well, I challenge police across the country to gird up their loins and accept the fact they’ve done wrong and correct it instead of digging their heels in and crying,” Newsome said.
