Someone plastered graffiti all over the side of a Greenpoint building to protest a non-profit company’s plans to build a homeless shelter for men there. HELP USA already has one shelter in Brownsville, where residents have complained of prostitution and drug use, but residents are rallying to stop the new facility on McGuinness Boulevard at Clay Street. HELP USA is run by the sister of Attorney General (and future governor?) Andrew Cuomo.
