DOB: Broken elevator is criminal

The Department of Buildings is pursuing criminal action for an elevator that has been broken for more than a month forcing elderly, disabled residents to walk up and down six flights of stairs.

The elevator at an apartment building in Pelham Park South has more than 40 violations, according to the DOB. One resident said she felt stranded inside her apartment.

The management company SG2 has not returned calls for comment.
