Edenwald tenant claims housing officials failing to fix heat problem in building
A woman living in an Edenwald apartment building says she and her neighbors were without heat for nearly two weeks yet housing officials did nothing to help.
Yolanda Delgado says the heat went out on December 6 and was out for more than a week. After filing complaints with building management and New York City Housing Authority, she says the heat now comes and goes.
NYCHA officials say if the outdoor temperature is less than 55 degrees between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., it must be at least 68 degrees in a building. When the temperature drops below 40 between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., they say it must be 55 degrees inside a building. But some tenants feel the standards are too cold.
Delgado says she plans to call the borough president's office for help.
