Worst Buildings Getting Better

New, 1 comment

Many of New York's worst-kept buildings have been brought into compliance through the city's Alternative Enforcement Program (AEP). To be discharged from the program, landlords must fix 80% of outstanding code violations, submit a pest management plan to the Dept of Healthy and Mental Hygiene, and repay charges or liens for emergency repair work. “It is unfortunate that some owners will only respond when punitive measures are brought to bear.” [Crain's; previously]
