Shakespeare Ave. tenants in limbo following fire
Tenants living in a Morrisania apartment building are stuck in limbo as they continue to wait for news on whether they will be able to return home.
Residents say they were displaced after a fire tore through the building on 169th Street two weeks ago. Since then, the landlord has continuously told them the building isn't structurally sound.
The tenants say they have been forced to find alternative places to sleep and that the Red Cross only provided shelter for two days.
News 12 The Bronx reached out to the landlord, but the calls went unanswered. State Sen. Jose Serrano says he'll put pressure on the landlord to help get the families moved back in time for the holidays.
