We are in a housing crisis.
There seems to be two books when it comes to certain city agencies. The MTA uses to have them (until the NYPERG blew the lid) The building where I live is managed by Wavecrest Management and owned by GP-UHAB and before that from a partnership between Settlement Housing and UHAB.
For the past 15 years, the Tenant Association have been documented all the failing of the UHAB as a project manager and HPD as a overseer.
It doesn’t surprise me that any HPD and NYCHA project has been in dire disrepair all these years. We need to figure out why they are unable to be comply with their mandate. Money is a factor but it is not the only factor.
When I asked Letitia James about the fact that her hundred worse landlord caused issues, the answer was completely outside the scope.
Maintenance is not a sexy job. Fifteen years maintaining the cable network in New York city taught me that it is actually the most sexy and gratifying job out there.
Before things brake, complicated equipment tend to warn us with warnings. Whether it’s an elevator, a boiler, or a computer. I will hire the supper from my building to access NYCHA … When something brake, we know about it long time before.
