Dead-beat landlord fails to fix 287 housing violations

A tenant of an apartment building on East Tremont Avenue and Walton Avenue has sued her landlord after he failed to fix 287 violations.

However, when Michelle Garcia went to court, no one from Apache Realty showed up. In its absence, the court ordered Apache to fix all the violations, some within 24 hours.

The NYC Department of Health says it will be monitoring the landlord?s compliance with the court order.
