Journalists, residents and public officials gathered in front of 3852-3854 10th Ave. on Feb. 6 — one of the newest additions to New York City’s annual list of apartment buildings with the most egregious building code violations — to publicly name the city’s worst landlords.
“The rodent infestations is one of many examples of the careless acts of this landlord who’s only motive is to profit and not to provide a safe living environment to his tenants,” said New York State Assembly Member Carmen De La Rosa. De La Rosa was joined by Mayor Bill de Blasio and nearly a dozen other public officials and neighborhood advocates to speak out against such building owners and managers.
New York City’s Alternative Enforcement Program listed 250 buildings that combined, totaled 26,034 hazardous and immediately hazardous code violations. Owners are subject to fines and, if they are able to feel shame, public humiliation.
