Residents give NYCHA low marks in recent report cardPosted: Updated:
Residents living in New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) buildings gave the authority poor grades on a recent report card looking at various areas.
The grades were compiled from 1,500 surveys sent out by five different community organizations.
Residents gave NYCHA a "C" for repairs in their apartments and a "D+" for building maintenance, citing the time it takes to fix things and numerous broken elevators in the buildings.
Safety got a "D+," with responders saying that the $73 million paid to the NYPD for protection is not meeting its goals.
Rounding out the report card, management got a "C-." Residents said that managers are unresponsive to their requests and that they aren't held accountable to anyone.
