  • 4121 7th Ave Brooklyn, NY - Sunset Park
    Our building has had no heat for 5 days. The landlord has had a series of so-called professionals come, look, and do nothing. The problem has actually gotten worse since the last person came. This is the second time this month we have had this issue.
  • 510 80th Street Brooklyn, NY - Bay Ridge
    It is 16 degrees outside and I have no heat tonight in this building. The radiator is as cold as my refrigerator. I am all wrapped in blankets and wasting my money trying to stay warm with an electric heater, since these apartments are so drafty. I can't sleep I am so cold. This is not an uncommon occurance. The heat is almost always turned off at night, even when the temperature outside is below 40 degrees.
  • 510 80th St Brooklyn, NY 11209, USA - Bay Ridge
    No heat has been provided at all since the weather has started getting cooler. The landlord owns the restaurant, Mussels and More, on the ground floor. He keeps it immaculate. Meanwhile, the tenants inside the upper apartments are left freezing and living in apartments that are drafty, falling apart and leaking every time it rains. No attention is ever given to the comfort of the tenants.

  • 62-65 Saunders St Queens, NY 11374, USA - Rego Park
    This apartment has little to no heat. Sometimes even when temperature gets below the lawful mark, there's still no heat. I've called 311 couple of times but no action was taken.
    Even spoken to the management of the building but nothing was done. Many old folks live in this building and this is a terrible condition for them. Pls help.

    211 S 3rd St New York, NY 11211 - Williamsburg

    I hope you can be of help. I would like to file a formal complaint against my landlord, who has historically neglected to provide heat (to at least 68 degrees F when appropriate and indicated by nyc gov regs) and hot water for my apartment. I am hoping to reach a critical mas of unhappy tenants that want to vocalize the problem.

    The current problem -- for the last month we have had unreliable heat and hot water and 2 weekends ago we were told the boiler was broken and were left with out either for 4 days. In general, hot water and heat is usually made available in the morning, but ends at about 9:30 and then continues later in the afternoon (I know this because I can usually do dishes around 5PM).

    The ongoing issue: In terms of heat, I believe the heat is turned on in the evening so there is some during the night (still not 68 degrees) but all afternoon there is no heat. If all tenants were gone all day, I could understand this heat/hot water pattern, but there is no reason to assume that we are all gone and heat and hot water need only be provided on some kind of schedule that we have had no input on.

    After enduring these ongoing, sporadic heat and hot water issues ALL last winter, I have learned as tenants that we have rights to heat and hot water and want to make the best effort to ensure this does not happen again. Although I was told heat and hot water is provided, and always pay my rent on time, I have found myself an unfortunate victim of my landlord's neglect. It is rough being sick in the winter with no heat and this year I am pregnant so much more concerned.... I don't know why this is happening or what we can do. My husband called and were yelled at and accused of being liars. Please help!
