- A small encampment of homeless people defiantly stood its ground against New York City police and sanitation workers before authorities moved in Wednesday afternoon to clear tents, blankets and other belongings as part of a crackdown launched by Mayor Eric Adams to rid his city of people living in the streets.
- Police arrested several homeless advocates who for hours had shielded a handful of homeless people from being removed from a street in the Lower Eastside, amid the cold and rain.
- Police have already cleared more than 250 such encampments, more than half of them in Manhattan.
