City Fixing Some Really Crappy Slumlord Buildings

New, 13 comments

The city wants everyone to know that it's fixing up some of the "most decreipt" slumlord apartment buildings in town. The law requires the housing department to identify the city's 200 worst buildings based on violations and inspections. The agency spent $10 million on repairs this year, but it, uh, only got back $2 million from the landlords. The department has targeted another 200 buildings. As for the other 20,000 or so that need help, uh, they'll get to you. [NYDN]
