Critics say the new homeless shelters planned by Mayor Bill de Blasio break the City’s fair share rules that require services to be equitably distributed across the city. The shelters are going in area with the most homeless people, which tend to be┬ápredominately black and Latino. Residents of those neighborhoods want fewer shelters around them and more to be built in whiter, wealthier places too.
