Man Stabbed Outside New York City Migrant Shelter Hotel

A man was stabbed outside the Watson Hotel, a converted migrant shelter in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. The incident occurred during a dispute outside the hotel on W. 57th Street, where the victim was attacked by another man. According to the police, the victim sustained stab wounds to his chest and forearm. He was privately transported to Mount Sinai West Hospital and is currently in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in connection with the stabbing, and the investigation is ongoing. It remains unclear whether the victim or the attacker were migrants or residents of the hotel.

The Watson Hotel, previously a three-star establishment, was repurposed to accommodate the influx of migrants in the city. At one point, numerous migrants were living in tents outside the hotel until it reached its capacity. Last year, the hotel was also the site of a tense standoff between migrants who refused to relocate to new living arrangements provided by the city at the Brooklyn Cruise terminal.
