Building Collapse Aftermath

420 Melrose Street has been sharing quips on Twitter about its unfortunate situation?the building was evacuated last month after cracks appeared?but it's not all wisecracking tweets over there. One resident tells Brownstoner, "We were never given an opportunity to go in and get things. The landlord is still holding our security deposit and half a month's rent hostage while we all try and figure out individually where to live?As for the DOB, we're filing tort claims, which you have to file if you want to pursue any action at any time against a city agency, but generally we have been redirected to any number of city agencies that were only able to individually offer us space in a no-kitchen, shared bathroom homeless shelter."
