It is an absolute outrage that there are thousands of NYCHA residents throughout the city that have been without heat or hot water. How can this be permitted to happen?
Why weren't all the boilers in these buildings inspected in October before the winter season, and any necessary repairs or replacements of the boilers made immediately?
Nobody should have to live in such horrendous conditions and suffer needlessly through this extreme cold spell. Many tenants are using their stoves and space heaters to heat their apartments. These two methods are very dangerous.
NYCHA should make getting heat and hot water restored to these thousands of tenants an immediate priority. People should not have to endure such unlivable conditions.
