New York officials reportedly consider closed prison for displaced Sandy victims

Fox News

Officials in New York are reportedly eyeing a recently-closed prison as temporary housing for people displaced by superstorm Sandy and this week’s nor’easter.

The New York Post reports that state officials are considering the Arthur Kill Correctional Facility on Staten Island to feed and house as many as 900 victims with nowhere else to turn.

“Our facilities staff have to go through it to determine what it would take to get it up and running for such a purpose,” Peter Cutler, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections, told the newspaper. “Of course, the challenge is the fact that it was closed a year ago and all of the major infrastructure components, such as boilers and wastewater system, were deactivated.”

As many as 40,000 New Yorkers need shelter from extreme weather events, according to city estimates. On Staten Island alone, about 5,200 people applied for temporary FEMA housing, but only about two dozen people have been successfully placed, federal sources told the newspaper.

“It’s empty. They might as well use it,” said Rob Conigatti, 39, who lost his Dongan Hills home and is now staying with his extended family. “At least they have the right facilities. You can’t keep them in schools. The kids gotta go to school.”

    It’ll be DAMN interesting to see exactly how & who will step up to be housed in this facility. The Hills Have Eyes!

    These idiots are just starting to figure this out now?

    Wow. A prison for displaced people. Sounds an awful lot like the scenario from the show, “The Walking Dead”. All they need are zombies on the outside looking in. That shouldn’t be too hired, seeing as how many zombies we have in the outside world already.

      Adds a bit of credibility to the statement of “Hollywood Controls Government”. To hell with reality, SiFi at it’s finest!

      Really great to see our gubberment helping (sarcasm).

    Oh yea, and don’t forget the prison reservoir is filled with raw sewage, but it’s water, so they might as well use it for bathing, right? What is wrong with these people?
