EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) — A city team arrived to dismantle a homeless encampment in the East Village of Manhattan, but was met by activists.

Sanitation, NYPD, and Homeless Services are on the scene and have closed East 9th Street at Avenue B.

The NYPD had flyered the area Tuesday, hoping the homeless would move along. Some had not left by the time the team had arrived.

The site, near Thompkins Square Park, had been dismantled in the past, but homeless individuals appear to be returning.
