People who live in two Upper West Side low-income apartment buildings will be sharing space with hundreds of homeless people.
The Department of Homeless Services started moving the first of 400 homeless people into the buildings, according to a DNAinfo.com report.
The residents, many who have lived in the building for years, say they didn't even know what was going on until they asked why police were stationed at the building's entrance.
The city says it is part of a program to create emergency shelters because it is out of space.
The buildings in question are at 315 and 330 West 95th St.
This is the second time the residents of these single-room occupancy (SRO) buildings have been in this situation.
In November 2009, 200 homeless men were bused in during the middle of the night as part of a "temporary move" that only ended in July 2011.
Many people there say they are not happy about it because fights broke out all the time the last time this happened.
Other people in the neighborhood are also upset because the buildings are near a school and they were not even warned about the plan.
