NYC Moving Migrants into Famed Luxury Times Square Hotel; From Rio Grande to The Row Hotel! Migrants bussed in from Texas will be housed in $400-a-night luxury NYC hotel within a MONTH - as Eric Adams struggles with influx of 600 families

NYC moving migrants into famed luxury Times Square hotel:
A luxury Manhattan hotel once touted as the “Lullabuy of Broadway” will soon be providing beddy-bye to hundreds of asylum-seeking migrants, The Post has learned.
Mayor Eric Adams plans to convert the Row NYC — formerly known as the Milford Plaza and located in pricey tourist-packed Times Square — into an intake center and shelter for as many as 600 migrant families amid the city’s spiraling homelessness crisis, three sources familiar with the matter said.
“In a month or two, we’re about to open up for [the city Department of Homeless Services], for homeless,” a hotel staffer told The Post on Monday.
“They’re working on an agreement, a contract,” the worker said of the plan, which is designed to help handle homeless border-crossers bused to the city from Texas.
“It’ll be here at this hotel, but they’ll keep the DHS shelter on a certain floor. But that hasn’t started yet, they said a month or two.”
City Hall hasn’t said what the hotel plan may cost or provided any other details about it, including who exactly will run the operation.
An Adams administration rep told The Post on Monday only that the city has extended its deadline for receiving bids from entities interested in operating the massive undertaking at the hotel “to get a range of responses.”
The deadline for submitting bids is Wednesday, the representative said.At the stately Row NYC on Eighth Avenue between West 44th and West 45th streets, guests are greeted by a scene similar to those at red-carpet events, with a carpeted section of sidewalk at its entrance and stone steps inlaid with decorative lights. A vinyl banner at the top of the stairs features the hotel’s logo — adding to the perfect setting for tourists and guests to snap selfies and other photos. --->READ MORE HERE
From Rio Grande to The Row Hotel! Migrants bussed in from Texas will be housed in $400-a-night luxury NYC hotel within a MONTH - as Eric Adams struggles with influx of 600 families:
A luxury hotel in the center of Manhattan is set to become a hub for housing asylum-seeking migrants who have been bussed in from Texas.
The Row, which is based near tourist-packed Times Square, will become a shelter for as many as 600 migrant families in news that first reported by the New York Post.
Sources claim that they are going to place families and single people who have traveled from Texas after Gov George Abbott unveiled his plan to start transporting people from his southern state.
The plush hotel is understood to be working with Mayor Adams to convert part of the hotel, where rooms can cost more than $400-a-night, into an intake center.
A hotel security guard told on Monday that there were no migrants currently in staying in The Row.
He added that the hotel is expecting a group of migrants from the Department of Homeland Security within the month.
The security guard said that as far as he knew, the rooms being given to the migrants will be standard rooms all on the same floor. --->READ MORE HERE
