NYC Is Installing Anti-Homeless Street Designs… (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Cash Jordan shares the anti-homeless architecture New York City is installing in this 12 November 2023 video.

“Hostile Architecture” has many purposes, but the question being asked in this case is should it be used against NYC’s most vulnerable? There are examples of this type of design all over the city, some installed by private companies, and others by the city itself.

The following descrition is from The Urbanist.

“All urban design and architecture is implemented with a particular goal in mind — often to shape people’s behavior in a particular direction. Hostile architecture, also known as unpleasant or exclusionary architecture, or defensive urban design, is a type of design which “uses elements of the built environment to guide or restrict behavior,” particularly relating to elements that are intended to stop people from doing something.

“It is usually used for preventing damage to property, limiting particular uses of public space (such as preventing skateboarding), or stopping homeless people from sleeping or resting in public spaces. It has also been applied in service of segregation and racial discrimination.”
