Placing a homeless shelter in our midst without providing psychiatric care and social services is unconscionable. The mayor has overstepped.

More needs to be done for this person by the city and the neighborhood. This man is clearly mentally ill and homeless. I’ve seen him in the neighborhood for about a year. He does not have the capacity to care for himself. He needs treatment and help, not jail which is a revolving door with no benefits to those jailed or neighborhoods where incarcerated individuals return to. Mental illness and homeless is a reality in our city and that includes this neighborhood. While it’s upsetting to see someone struggling, removing them doesn’t solve the problem. We need need to pressure the Governor and Mayor to change the statue of New York’s mental health laws, services and their accessibility.

Disgraceful. All of the commenters know where this dirtbag is yet he is free to roam the streets to harass people.

I saw him today, just like
others said, right on 71 by the bagel shop just loitering. Unfortunately, the problem is bigger than him. From walking along Queens Blvd from 75 Av to 71 Av I encountered another 2 just like him. One guy had his pants down exposing his full underwear at the corner of Ascan yelling at some of the cars and was drunk or high on something. Then another guy who looked mentally unstable, disgusting, dirty outfit with a heavy coat on (on this 90 degree humid day) was using a wifi kiosk and just giving dirty looks and you could see people walking by felt uncomfortable and thought, ‘what the heck is he doing here? Please go away!’

The fact that anyone would give this comment a thumbs down is shocking. Is anyone on here in favor of having degenerates loiter around our neighborhood starting in with people who actually live and work here?

The subway system is a place where being homeless is a free pass to do anything you want.

Then again, he could just be a homeless guy who was hot and looking for someway/anyway to cool off.
*Sadly, not everyone is privy to A/C.

I’m not refuting his lewdness outside of insisting that I saw nothing inappropriate in this video clip.

Hey Ricky Ray Taylor: News Flash: This is a descriptive video of what he looks like; it is not a video of what he did. The purpose of this video is give people a visual of what he looks like so he can receive help and people are alert and can protect themselves. No where in the article or video caption does it state that this video shows this person exposing himself which would not be publicly posted FYI. Read, comprehend and think before you post “I saw nothing…”

Always outside the Gotta Getta Bagel on Austin Street, Forest hills. Right on front of a Mexican food street vendor cart. Drunk and aggressive when people pass by. Peeing against the wall. I just saw him last night.

He looks familiar

I might be wrong but I think I have seen him near 52nd street station (a couple of years ago) on occasion. He’s homeless and usually drunk. Last time I saw him he was sitting on the only stairs to the station and basically created a toll booth for people needing to pass. He threw his cereal at a male passerby who refused to give him money and then upskirted a woman passerby. I haven’t seen him since but he’s perpetually angry and entitled.

He has been near “Gotta Get a Bagel” – he’s outside before Citibank on Austin St.

He’s always standing outside Gotta Getta Bagel in Forest Hills so it shouldn’t be difficult to find him.

Yes he is always there on the Getta bagel urinating on the wall, rude and aggressive and drunk.

I am certain this is another straggler from the glorious homeless shelter we were blessed with by Katz and Koslowitz. Thank you!

I hope our future anti jail rallies will include shutting down this shelter.
It is victimizing family neighborhoods, and is not properly serving the mentally ill who sleep in these shelters at night, and in the mornings, are shoved out to panhandle, stretch out on our sidewalks, or whatever.
