Demonstrators confronted Mayor Bill de Blasio during and after his workout at the Park Slope YMCA Friday, demanding he provide more affordable housing for homeless New Yorkers.
"People are uncomfortable. People are demanding homes for themselves. The mayor gets to go to the gym every day. He gets to go home and sleep at night in his own bed," said Paulette Soltani, housinc campaign coordinator with Vocal-NY. "He claims to be fighting for the fairest big city in the country, and this is not the fairest big city."
The Mayor's Office did not comment after the confrontation.
