It’s official: The city’s largest men’s shelter and the central intake facility for all homeless men in Philadelphia is all but cleared out to make way for, of all things, a new Stephen Starr commissary. The men who stay there — about 66 remaining as of Wednesday, according to shelter director Julius Jackson— were moved yesterday to other accommodations. “Where?” you might wonder. Well, one answer is: not Center City.
