  • 11a Somers Street - Fort Greene
    I am unable to contact the person who owns this building. My 2 children and i and cold. The nights are the worse. There is no heat and very little hot water. Contacting HPD has not warranted any actions.
  • 255 W 187th St New York, NY 10040, USA - Washington Heights
    Our hot water goes completely out several times a day, and has for over a year now. The overall pressure is very, very weak. And the temperature is barely "warm" (we never turn on the cold water in the shower). We brought this matter to the building's attention the day we moved in, and have been brushed off ever since. We've filed multiple (successful) complaints with the City, but the Super, and the Building Condo Board still refuse to do anything to help us.
  • 2770 Ocean Avenue New York, NY - City Council District 48
    So far, here are the issues we are forced to live with:
    1. Roach/pest infestation that is building-wide and NOTHING has been done in the two years we're living here
    2. Elevator (at least one of them) is making an awful noise and is in a constant state of disrepair.
    3. MOLD - our apt has it in both rooms and in the bathroom, I've spoken with other tenants - same story everywhere. Building owners aren't acting.
    4. Radiators hiss and emit an oily musty smell when the heat is on.

    My Mother is 76 years old with numerous health issues and every winter including this one she has to deal with no heat or hot water on a regular basis. She burns her stove for heat every night because when housing sends heat it's for 1 to 4 hours in the day hours and after 9 or 10 at night it is cut off. Leaving her without heat during the coldest hours of the day. This has been going on for years. Burning the stove for heat also creates mold in the apartment which housing is aware happens due to lack of heat sent through the radiators. It's ashame we pay these bums rent and then we have to fight for basic services we are already entitled to and pay for. And as always it's an uphill fight and we're ignored. If you didn't pay your rent they would have you in court after 30 days and yet they let the tenants suffer for years. Thank you for creating this site. You have done all of us a public service in exposing these landlords including the city. My mother has been reporting this issue to NYCHA since 12/10/2009 and we have also filed a complaint with 311. Still busines as usual.
  • 835 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10032 - Washington Heights
    Hot water is not reliably provided to residents. Problem affects whole building and has been reported repeatedly to management and to 311, but it persists. We never know when we turn on the hot water faucet whether the water will be warm or ice cold. Super is unreachable when it happens and the repair number given by management goes to an answering service.
  • 350 Montauk Street BROOKLYN, NY 11208 - Brooklyn Community Board 14
    MY GRANDCHILDREN LIVE IN A TWO FAMILY HOUSE WHERE THE LANDLORD TURNS OFF THE HEAT AT 10PM SO SHE CLAIMS. THERE ARE CHILDREN IN THIS HOUSE WHOSE AGES ARE 8, 4, 2, 1. THESE BABIES ARE COLD ALL THE TIME. SHE ALSO DOES NOT TURN ON THE HEAT IN THE MORNING WHEN THE OLDEST NEED TO GET READY FOR SCHOOL. THIS IS A DOWNRIGHT SHAME. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE
  • 1535 Taylor Ave Bronx, NY - Parkchester
    Well the heat came and went just as fast. There was another cold evening/morning here at 1535 Taylor ave. It was cold last evening so we slept with an electric heater . No hot water this morning so the oven goes on and the stove to warm the water. These LANDLORDS must be stopped. I can't understand how the L.L. ,[MILBANK REAL ESTATE], does not go to jail. This is like holding the tenants hostage in a cave. The broken windows are still broken ,the heat/hot water is ,like last year , all but moot . What and how do tenants , get the services that come with the signing of a liese? The LANDLORDS prey on the poor,young,sick and elderlly. This problem needs the Maylor of NYC to get involved. HELP
