1780 1st Ave Apt 14F Holmes Tower Noise Harrassment

I am writing about my noisy upstairs neighbor. She is banging on the risers with an object in my living room. It is annoying. Someone is helping her. This is everyday, has been going on for over 6 years. I bought documents into my management, was told to call 911 by my Housing Assistant. I am not going to do that. My life is not threatened. These are smartasses, it is to annoy me. In my bedroom they are using some kind of gadget to make loud snapping noises. This throughout the day. I go out, come back, they continue. I cannot get any sleep. They will start in the mornings at 7:00am, continue at 1:30am in the morning, then 3:30am in the morning. Nothing is being done about this. My former manager Mr. Diaz took them to Court over this some years back. This same woman was on probation for a year. Mr. Diaz is no longer our manager. I could not show up to Court because I was sick at that time. These disrespectful tenants never do this in the Summer Months. They start as soon as the heat comes up, I cannot make this up. Are they stupid enough to think I believe they are the Super. I used to hear banging many years ago, I don't hear that anymore, haven't heard it in a long time. The noise would come from the radiators, not the risers. I have a right to live in my apartment in peace & quiet within reason. Normal people play Music or their TV, not bang on the risers with an object. I used to think this woman was crazy, but she's not, this is to annoy me. If you can stop all Summer, you can stop in the Winter Months also. The manager needs to enforce this rule. She is continuing to get away with this. My Housing Assistant is doing nothing also, she told me, let me know if she does it again. It is everyday! Please do something about these non-human people. I live in 1780 1st Ave Apt 13F. I cannot talk to this woman, tried that, she lied to the Police that I pushed her, I know better than to do that. They came to my door, told me is she would have had bruises, I could have been arrested. She filed a false Police Report. My manager name is Aida George, the assistant manager is Liping Tsaun, and my Housing Assistant is Delores Seabrook. They all came to my apt, but it is still going on. Dated 10-29-18..

Upstairs neighbor bathroom leak

This is RIDICULOUS! I swear I think NYCHA is trying to get rid of me on purpose. Why else would they continue to ignore my complaints about the upstairs toilet leaking problem?? For 3 YEARS I've had a leak problem. They seem to ALWAYS come back with "pipe problems from another neighbor" and not do a DAMN THING! Tonight a pipe definitely broke upstairs and not only did it FLOOD my bathroom AND kitchen but ALSO MY BEDROOM!! WHAT THE ###?! I work AND pay rent EVERY month ON TIME.I seriously cannot say the same for the people who live above me. THIS IS ###.

Lillan Wald houses SUCK!

You'll be hearing from my lawyers!

very rude and inconsiderate neighbor

i live @ 70 Gouverneur St. (Vladecks) and have a neighbor @ 6F who is taking over a section of NYCHA ground as if her own and threatening us that she will remove all the plants in this garden (on the street-side of Gouverneur) right away. She hasn't produced any paper work that she has the spot to start planting. We on the other hand have been doing what we can to get the soil fertilize. Which no one else in the building has done for at least 13 years, and now out of nowhere because a son of hers has died a month ago, she wants the garden spot all for herself to plant flowers and a mortuary honoring him. We our selves have not received any notices for renewing the garden nor were we told or notified that renewal was necessary. During these 13 years we have tried and finally succeeded to get plants growing again; only to have this woman of 6F to take it away when she has her own garden spot that is located in front of the building 2 the address above. there is no phone number of to whom we can contact with NYCHA gardening.
Any help and or assistance would be greatly appreciated on this nasty outtake.

Nasty Neighbours

I reside at 2065 Dean Street Brooklyn, NY 11233. I will like to bring an ungoing problem to your attention,as of recently the new neighbour that moved in across the hall from me in apartment 3B have been the most obnoxious,inconsiderate,vail human beings I have ever encountered in my whole 31 years of living.They think this is their private home and have no consideration for myself and other neighbours.I am unclear as to exactly how many people live in this apartment as I have seen many different people in and out,I have also witness about 10 kids at a time playing in the hallway that looked to be all under the age of 10.The kids themselves have no behaviour they are quite rowdy and seem to have no decorum.While they play in the hallway they can be heard from inside my apartment,they bang on my door with their balls,hand etc and when I brought this to the attention of their parents nothing was done.Why should of have to put up with such a disturbance in what is suppose to be the comfort of my own apartment.They play loud music at all hours whenever they feel,they are always in the hallway hanging out and when they are finish smoking,drinking and eating their garbage is being felt in the hallway.They have been a major contribution to the disgusting state the hallway on the 3rd floor.They are clearly in breach of many of NYCHA's rules and regulations eg.1.Conduct or behaviour that presents a danager to the health and safety of neighbours 2.Poor housing keeping 3.Behaviour that is considered to endanger the peaceful occupation of other residents and 4.Smoking. I have also witness the police warning them about this behaviour.I do feel very much unsafe living next to neigbours like this as they have so many people coming and going and the constant strange charactors hanging out in the hallway.This is not the type of enviroment I find adequate or becoming for me to be raising my 11 years old son in.

No smoking as of july 30, 2018

Does the new no smoking rule apply to marijuana smoking as well. My father lives in senior housing and is surrounded by individuals who use the tables and seats for seniors and smoke from the morning to night. Nobody does nothing. Seniors are too afraid to complain. So the no smoking rule apply to marijuana smoking as well? Ex: Lobby, staircase, individuals who do not live there. Security does nothing. They are afraid of any retribution.

3444 White Plains Road, Apt. 12a. A family of hostile people.

I live in building 3444 White Plains Road in The Bronx with my twin sister.

In November of 2017 a new family moved into the apartment above me in 12a, and right from the start they were disruptive. At all hours of the day, all days of the week the family and children alike would pour into the room above my bedroom to stomp, shout, scream and blast music.

Any time I made a 311 complaint against this family, they would blatantly lie to the police. Either by smiling and reassuring them they'd lower the volume only to intentionally raise the noise they were making to spite me, or by playing the victim by insisting the children are very young and therefore it's justified that they're a disruption.

This justification makes absolutely no sense, as they blast music at unreasonable volumes and let the young children stay up often late into the night, sometimes until 2am. The parents actively encourage the children as well, telling them to be louder when complaints are levied against them.

They're a very combative, hostile family so I haven't been able to speak to them and find out their names, but I'm fairly certain they're the Figeuros based on the information I could find online about the current leaseholders.

I don't know what this is going to do, but everyone should at least know about this deeply abusive family and how uncooperative they are when it comes to co-habitation. They're incapable of it and make no attempts to change.

stalking

I am being stalked by my daughters biological fathers ex girlfriend who is my next door neighbor. I live in Baruch Houses in Manhattan. I went through mediation with social services and was granted permission to move but my management office blocked my transfer. I've gone to the police and they will not help me because they say her actions are non violent. Every time I put in a complaint against what she is doing they close it out and wont even question her actions. I fear for the safety and well being of my daughter and I. I feel she is trying to provoke violence with her actions. Can someone please offer me some assistance. Thanks in advance

mailboxes are broken

The mailboxes were I live have been out of service for over 3 months now. As a result, tenants whom this issue affects have to go to the post office only twice per week during an outlined timeframe to pick up their mail. This is a major inconvenience and there has been no discussion in regards to when this is going to be repaired.

Sedgwick Houses

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Martha Rivera and I currently reside at the Sedgwick Houses located at 164 west 174th Street, Apt 11C Bronx, NY 10453. I am complaining because for the past few years I have been taking my housing development to Housing court regarding repairs that needs to be done/completed. My Housing Caseworker both Mr. O and Ms. Paulino (718-299-7500) are very aware of my situation for a long time and they are not taking me seriously at all. My health and safety is of no concern to them whatsoever. The first time I requested an Emergency Transfer was several years ago due to being attacked in my own building before the elevators doors were replaced. Back then the elevators doors open only if you push it open. This attack occurred before 9am and no one helped me. I suffered facial bruising and now currently suffer from sleep disorder as well as mental health problems which I am currently in treatment. They both are aware that I do not feel safe and the reason they couldn't honor my request for transfer was because I owed rent. This reason is beyond reason.
Now my apartment is falling apart. My entire living room area needs plastering and the floor repaired as well. My kitchen floor entirely needs to be repaired. The entire kitchen floor is without tiles. My hallway and both bedrooms and bathroom needs painting. It has been more than two years since my last transfer request. When I inquired about my transfer, my caseworker rudely mentioned that nothing has been filed. Ms. Paulino knows my case very well and she is being rude and ignorant regarding my situation. I requested to be transferred to a one bedroom apartment and they are ignoring me completely. I have been very patient and don't know what steps I need to take to be transferred to another housing development.
If you need further information please contact me at anytime at 1-347-592-4098. Thank you very much and have a great day.

I live in Grant Houses on the upper West side of Manhattan and we get water during the day and it goes away about 6pm every night and does not come back till the morning.

We've been going through this for about 3 years now and we've been living here for 3 years where the water comes and goes. I pay $

Oil Based Paint

I am an asthmatic tenant living in St Nicholas Houses, on Saturday February 24th, 2018 Housing sent contractors to paint two bedrooms in my apartment, Since than I've been unable to sleep in my bedroom and been coughing due to the odor. I believe Housing should choose a low odor paint,considering many tenants living in Housing are suffering from lung issues and asthma. Thank you.

staircase obstruction

neighbors block the hallway and staircase with personal items such as strollers, mountain bikes, furniture etc...it is a fire hazard as the staircase is not easily assessible. nycha management should send out notices to residents they can be fined if these are found to be theirs. sometimes the elevators does not work so the one staircase is the only option to exit and enter the building.

NYCHA

My family and I have been harrassed because we are a family of 6 and hispanic. We feel judged and discriminated against and we are being treated differently. Our rent when up 400% because the manager does not know how to calculate the rent. My husband is self employed and when your self employed your net income is your income https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/hpd/downloads/pdf/renter-resources/income-guide.pdf as shown here. He choses what expenses he wants to deducted because he says his brother a cab driver and continues to compare us to his brother finances. He told us if we don't like it then pack our bags and leave nycha this lead to us felling threaten, harrased I cried for 3 days I felt that my 4 children security was in jeopardy. I have sarcoma cancer which is a rare cancer and am undergoing treatment and this is extremely stressful and nycha housing manager is causing me to get anxiety. I feel since he has been working there our rent has been grossly overcharged. Please help us and understand that we are human beings Our dream is to get out of NYCHA and have a house of course but we rightfully live her and do not have to be belittled and told horrendous things. We cannot afford the rent it is an impossibility. Also I have a 2 bedroom and have been in the transfer list for 11 years and there are plenty of 3 bedroom apartments available.

Parkside management development

No heat or hot water for past 3 to 4 days.. on january 17th, after realizing this was day 2 of no heat or how water. I called to speak to management, they assured me that the super of the building was already aware of the situation with no heat and hot water. And that he was working to fix it... this was on Wednesday, it is now Friday and still no heat or hot water. On top of that I’ve been living with this security hazard for over 1 year.. my intercom hasn’t worked. I lost my key last year in May, and i payed 25$ for a new key, oh i got a new key, but the key never worked, and till this day that key doesn’t work. I have mold in my entire apartment that i have put in service request tickets for MULTIPLE times... lets not forget about the peeled and chipped paint that my kids are exposed to everyday!!

HORRIBLE TENANTS!! 481 Williams Avenue Apt 6H

Tenants from hell. The noise starts from 6am and can go on basically all day. The wall to my room shakes all day from their savage kids who they have NO control over. Even if I go to the living room to try to sleep, the banging and screaming can be heard clearly. I thought these apartments were size regulated? There must be at least 5 people living there, when these units were meant for 3 people max. Its a daily nightmare and it seems like there is no resolve. I spoke with the super and we both spoke with the neighbors. I have even spoke with management on Sheffield avenue and they never helped. They told me to call the police? Are you serious? That's management's job to enforce lease rules and listen to tenant complaints. Apparently rules on a lease don't apply to these people. There are 2 kids I have honestly NEVER heard speak... Just scream and cry. Their fire alarm goes off on average of 6 times a day which makes me very nervous because one day, there will be a real fire and no one will know. These people have left perishable food on the refuse room floor when the trash chute is clearly open for use. As a result, the whole 6th floor smelled like rotten potatoes and there was mayflies on our floor in DECEMBER?! They constantly burn incense and the hallways stinks. This is a smoke free building, apparently they don't care. There is one guy that practically lives there that always leaves his motor bike in the hallway blocking the other neighbors for or obstructing the refuse room.

As a result of all the noise, I have lost countless hours of sleep. I have woken up in the middle of the night to banging noises on my wall or to the screams of kids. Or the guy with the motor bike decides to get off the elevator with his boom box on loud which can be heard clearly in my apartment since I'm right in front of the elevator. I will not tolerate this in 2018 and will push forward with legal procedures if management does not intervene immediately.
