Apartment tenants attending the Tenant Resource Fair on April 4 in Manhattan’s Inwood neighborhood learned that even though they are a long subway ride from City Hall, city officials can still help with a range of problems with their housing. The resource fair was sponsored by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and held at the Isabella Geriatric Center at 515 Audubon Ave.
“Tenants Uptown need to know that New York City stands behind them when it comes to keeping them safe and in their homes,” said City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez. “This resource fair is about driving home this point, and assisting tenants with landlord issues, apartment repairs and more.
Attendees learned about how to start and strengthen a tenant association, rent protection for low-income senior and disabled tenants, HPD housing lotteries, rights of tenants in rent-regulated apartments, and housing discrimination.
