Homeless Must Move to Make Way for Barclays Center

There are only a few dozen people still living on the 22 acres that constitute Atlantic Yards...estimates range from 15 to 62. But a privately owned shelter on the property houses 150 homeless people. Now they've been told the shelter will shut down January 15. Those eligible for housing will be placed and those still in need of a shelter will be transferred, according to a notice.
