It’s possible that Mayor Eric Adams won’t take into account all New Yorkers as he continues to manage the migrant situation. There are certain people who are struggling, notably folks who run small businesses.
As he continues to place refugees in emergency shelters located all across the city, Mayor Adams is offering financial assistance and other forms of support to the migrants.
Yet when he does so, it’s detrimental to the owner of the little business, but it’s profitable for larger facilities like hotels.
Then, another business proprietor at I [Love] NY Gifts by the name of Saif Sarker said that business had dropped by approximately 75 percent ever since the migrants moved into the hotel.
The owners of businesses are bearing the brunt of the consequences, while the hotel is thriving.
The City does not receive any kind of discount when staying at the four-star Holiday Inn. They charge a total of $190 USD per room every night. The hotel is available to migrants until May 2024, at the earliest.
According to Fox News, if the hotel were operating at its maximum capacity, the city of New York might be charged a total of $2.8 million each month.
