Longfellow Ave. residents fuming over lack of gas in apartments

For residents at 911 Longfellow Ave., cooking has become an arduous process after they discovered there is no gas service in their building.

Residents in the building had moved out while renovations were taking place. When they returned, they found that the gas, which had been working before the renovations, was no longer flowing into their stoves.

For weeks, many of the tenants have been relying on hotplates for cooking, turning what used to be a 30-minute food preparation into a two-hour affair.

Building officials say that they are working on resolving the issue, but warn it could take at least 30 days before anything can be done.
