New York City has added four more beds to the Murphy bedkit program, as it aims to reduce the number of beds in the city to about 3,000.
The beds, which will be located in two public parks in the Bronx and in the Manhattan borough of Queens, are intended to help address the city’s overcrowding problem and address the problem of overuse.
The program, which is in its second year, will also provide the beds to residents of the boroughs Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island.
The Brooklyn-Queens borough will receive three beds, while the Bronx-Queins borough will have two.
All four beds will be in public parks.
In 2016, the NY Times reported that the Murphy program was experiencing “a crisis of overcrowding” and that it was being funded primarily with private donations.
Since then, the program has been expanded to include four additional beds.
In an email to the New York Daily News, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that all four beds would be located at the Brooklyn and Queens boroughs, along with two more at the Bronx boroughs.
“The Brooklyn and Bronx beds will continue to serve as temporary storage facilities for temporary beds,” de Blasio wrote.
“As part of our efforts to reduce overcrowding in New York, we have added four additional new beds in two parks in Brooklyn and two in Queens.
These new beds will serve as a temporary storage facility for temporary, temporary beds in these parks.
They are designed to be available to residents who are not otherwise eligible for temporary or temporary bedding.”
In the future, more beds will likely be added to the Brooklyn, Queens and Queens parks, with the Brooklyn borough expecting to add another 4,000 beds by 2021, according to the Times.
