Mold, Rodents, and Squatters, Oh My!

Press members and elected officials recently went on a tenant-organized tour of 592 and 596 East 22nd Street in Flatbush and came out completely disgusted. The litany of problems includes black mold, rodents, broken locks and doors that only close from the inside, a lack of heat, and squatters in the basement! Tenants say the landlord is trying to force them out so he can renovate the buildings. The landlord, Kalman Zimmerman, says, "I know there's a problem. I'm not ignoring it." That might depend on your definition of "ignoring." [NYP]
