Early Valentine?s Day gift for some Mott Haven families

Some Mott Haven residents got the gift of a new home on Saturday afternoon.

Habitat NYC dedicated 13 new row houses to families who had previously resided in overcrowded or sub-standard housing. Each house has three levels with three bedrooms, two baths and a state-of-the-art kitchen.

More than a thousand volunteers from New York City businesses, schools and community groups worked to make the dream of home ownership a reality for these people. The 13 families join more than 150 current Habitat NYC home owners across the city.
