No Heat

It’s been since 2012 heat has not been coming up on the regular
during the winter months. I have a letter from my primary doctor
indicating I need heat 24/7 during winter months due to my arthritis.
Well that letter have fell on deaf ear. I refuse to pay rent the first five business days of of month due to the inadequate service that’s had been provided. However...I do pay my rent monthly it’s just at the nearing of the end of each month. It appears when you pay rent in the beginning of each month after that...no heat...no hot water...elevators broke etc. My belief is that NYCHA wants the tenants to become sick and tired & leave...so that their agenda is fulfilled to get the rich in by 2025...the writing is on the walls...!¡!

Marijuana smoking in hallway

1102 Longfellow. Murphy Private. On landing of 2nd FL, and in-between 4th and 5th floors there is always people loitering and smoking weed and hanging out making noise and dirtying the building. Called security a few times they do nothing. Bells do not work so cannot let NYPD in when they come. Cigarettes and marijuana smoke fill the apartments with children in them this is unsafe. Need something done

Incompetent Maintenance & Housing Assistants

I have been living here for 7-8 years now and it just keeps getting worse. The hallways are filthy, there are mice in the stairwell, garbage all over the front and side. Besides all of this they want their rent on time and they never provide the services needed. Since November 7 i have had no heat. I have called the Housing assistant and all he could say is that he took my complaint and forwarded it to the Superintendent. They have been closing all my tickets, no one has come by the apartment, there are no signs notifying us of any boiler issues. To make matters worse, my apt is the ONLY apt on my floor with no heat. I am feeling like this is personal. I don't understand why i can't get anything done, why whenever i call they treat me as if my concerns do NOT matter to them. This entire NYCHA system needs re-evaluation and an entirely new staff. They are running their buildings like the slumlords they claim not to be.

Criminality in Public Housing

Don't move to NYCPH. The NYCHA management is indifferent, complicit to crime and criminals. NYC laws are not enforced by NYPD. I have never seen such disregard for the Rule of Law, in my life.

It is truly the worst place I have ever lived.

Criminality in Public Housing

Awful Public Housing; loitering, smoking, total disregard for rules. NYCHA is complicit, does nothing. Police do not enforce the law. The City of New York Public Housing is awful.

I highly recommend, anyone considering it, to think twice, as NYCHA does not enforce laws of the City of New York, nor does the NYPD.

NYCHA

The help to most of the problems faced can begin with joining your Tenants Association and organize around the issues, if not you are talking loud and getting no where. When you know better, you do better, just saying.

NYCHA

I have a good solution to most of the problems, organize my people, join your Tenants Association and those who were elected by you the tenants can put fire under their feet and hold them accountable to help rectify these problems. It is your home and you deserve to be content and our children deserve better. Moreover, your President of your Tenant Association, has the ability if he/she has no clue how to organize, get outside organizations to come in to train those interested in organizing around the issues, these monies can come out of the money that are usually used to fund yearly family day at your development, I believe it could be used to help organized, I'm just saying.

not hot water

The Housing Development where I live has gone days on end, I would even say weeks that they haven't given any hot water. People have complained to the management office and all they say is to put in a ticket for the hot water. No signs are posted in our lobby about any problems with the hot water. Nothing we don't get any heads up and it's not fair cause there are children, elderly, sick, disabled tenants living in my building. We pay too much rent for this to be constantly happening. Its excuses after excuses, it's starting to look like a conspiracy. I have small kids, one of them being autistic. Every winter, there's always an issue with the heat as well, they only give when they feel like it. This is worrisome to me and I'm praying it gets resolved soon. 15 mothergaston blvd, Brooklyn ny 11233

RESIDENT ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT

We have a resident association president that has not done anything for the community since she started in 2016. From day one she stated that she does not want any old people on HER board or at any of her meetings. NYCHA was informed of what was taken place in Carver Houses. She sold everything that the previous president ordered during her time while the Management Office was open. She informed the Housing Manager that she is not allowed to attend any of her meetings. This president has not held a meeting since 2/17 and the bi-laws states that you must have some monthly meeting. She has been renting out the room for parties and etc. She is aware that we do not have an second exists. Petitions has been sent down to NYCHA and nothing has been done. Three of her board members has resign because of her vulgar month. In August the city held a meeting at our development pertaining to the new lights fixtures in our apartment. Flyers was suppose to be put up for the resident to attend the meeting of course she NEVER put up the signs so no came to the meeting. I feel because whenever any Important is to take place in any NYCHA development you have to hired some of the residents why is she the only one working. The sad part of it all that her husband work for NYCHA and he know people. Several residents has been calling NYCHA about the problems that they are having with this Resident Association President and our Housing Management is NOT doing anything to help us. She needs to be transfer and put someone that does not scare easy.

NYCHA

I moved into 807 boulevard housing with my daughter and was not aware I was pregnant with second child. Once I found out I waited till I gave birth to request a transfer it's been over a year now I am in a one bedroom with a 9 yr old and soon to be 4yr old on top of that there are neighbors on the second floor who are always in and out slamming doors. There door is literately right next to mine. They throw loud parties all the time leave objects in this very narrow hallway chairs garbage brooms ect. They smoke and drink in the hallway which enters my apartment. Told them not to smoke weed near my door but they will continue. Another neighbor called cops but they know how to make them feel bad for them saying sorry but there was a death or some other excuse. I'm hoping to get on my feet and my 9 yr old has disability and people refuse to babysit her. Not great to pass people in a very small hallway just to enter your apartment with your children and they don't even have there own room to go into and relax there's no privacy in this apartment or leaving this apartment. I suffer from anxiety and I can't get another anxiety attack being here with my girls and no space and dealing with disrespectful party people next door.. tired I just want my transfer that's been approved a year ago but they haven't contacted me just keep telling me wait for phone call or letter..

Harrassment by staff

I live in Rutgers Houses on Manhattan's Lower East Side. My Housing Assistant is rude to me, and harrasses me. I have attempted to communicate with her as it is pertinent to keeping my apartment. She often miscalculates my rent, and then tells me to pay the incorrect amount until the calculations are corrected. She is aware that I am disabled and experiencing financial hardships, and any unreasonable rent would be impossile for me to pay due to her error. This often results in court proceedings. I have major repairs that need to to completed in my apartment, and NYCHA was ordered by the court to fix. They have not been done, and she continues to conjure up issues that are fabricated against me. I amnot a confrontational person, so her behavior prevents me from visiting the management office to meet with her. I am under alot of stress because of her demeanor and am experiencing anxiety. I have sought the assistance from outside housing advocates who fax documents to her, and act on my behalf. There is an extensive list of issues that I have with management and I do not know who to turn to. Please help me resolve this matter.

Harassment

The tenant LOPEZ FAMILY above my apartment at 101 HUMBOLDT STREET APT. 6F, BROOKLYN, NY 11206 has been disturbing and irritating me persistently, wearing and exhausting me out with repeated deprivation of sleep and tranquility with loud movement of a furnisher, dropping objects during the day and night. It includes irritating bead sounds after midnight. I spoke to the LOPEZ family about the problem and they have disregarded my complaint that has been going on for quite some time. I get no sleep. I try to get some sleep while sitting in the living room and the same sounds follow me to that location. I have no name for their EVIL tactics, but it has to stop.

Upgrade

I have been with NYCHA for 8 years. I was pregnant with my first son when I finally received a studio apartment. I was told that I needed to wait till he was born to qualify for an upgrade. So I waited and brought down the paperwork (birth certificate, etc.) after receiving it. Two years, several meetings later and now pregnant with my second son and still in a studio apartment with no answers on when I was getting an upgrade. Was told the same thing that I had to wait and when my son was born to bring the paperwork down right away to get put on the list for a transfer faster. So I did that. I would go every other month to find out the status and was being told that I had to wait. Finally After a year I get called for a one bedroom. That was when I was told that I was in a Catch-22 because I was supposed to get upgraded for a two bedroom not a one bedroom. That I could continue to live in the studio and wait for the two bedroom or take the one and ask for another upgrade but waiting for the two bedroom was my best bet because I would get it faster. I didn't believe them so I decided to take the one bedroom and ask for an 2 bedroom upgrade. Figured while I wait I could be a bit more comfortable with the boys. We moved and I put in for the transfer and it took over 3 years for it to finally go through the system. I filled out paperwork and it was never processed. Every time I would go down to the office to ask about my status I was told that I wasn't in the system for a two bedroom upgrade. So I would fill out the paperwork again would go to the office a month or so later to find out the status and was told that I still wasn't put into the system. This happened to me over and over again for 2 years until I finally got so upset and didn't leave the office until I saw the manager enter the information into the system with my own eyes. Its been almost 3 years and I am still in a one bedroom apartment with 5 and 7 year old boys who will most likely be grown men by the time housing comes through with the upgrade. We moved into the One bedroom 5 years ago and we are still waiting with no answer from housing.
