Tenant Beefs

A disgruntled tenant who is very, very upset about the recurring black mold in his Roosevelt Island apartment decided to become a modern-day Jacob Riis. In a pretty epic nine-minute video, shot in a shaky Blair Witch-like style, he records the profusion of gross specks on his ceiling, his popped-up floor tiles, and even evidence of water leaks outside. He narrates the whole thing, too; his impromptu monologue includes numerous aggrieved declarations: "Let's just wait till I get asthma or cancer or whatever, and then you can pass on the apartment to the next tenant." Maybe the landlord at the Westview will listen now? [Roosevelt Islander]
