City unveils program to help tenants living in poor conditions in the Bronx
City officials recently unveiled a new program aimed at ridding the Bronx and city of bad landlords.
Tenants, who rallied at City Hall Monday, are supporting the program with the hope that their leaky faucets and broken windows will become a thing of the past. Under the program, grassroots community groups will work with the city to identify the most dilapidated buildings in the Bronx. The housing department will then inspect the buildings rather than investigate complaints from individual tenants.
The city's housing commissioner says his department continues to find places in certain districts around the city where housing conditions have not improved in the way officials want.
