BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Officials from the New York City Department of Buildings evicted today hundreds of people from what they claim are numerous illegally converted apartments in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The building in question is located at 89 Stockton St.

Building officials say some of the units were housing as many as seven people, while others were even illegally converted into hotel rooms.

Although many residents say they suspected or knew of the illegal conversions, they are upset officials would order the evictions on the day before Thanksgiving.

The Red Cross was on hand to help residents find temporary housing.
