Residents in Morris Heights say calls to have building fixed are being ignored
Tenants of one Morris Heights building are angry because calls to their landlord to fix a number of items are going unreturned.
The residents say the hot water does not always work and many mailbox doors are broken. One woman was living without a working stove until News 12 The Bronx contacted the building's management about the situation. The stove has now been replaced.
The Magaw Management Company bought the building in December and has received dozens of violations from the city, including two for a crumbling brick wall on the roof. News 12 The Bronx contacted the building manager who said the company has been responsive to complaints. He says the company has been working diligently to resolve problems in the building, which were left over from the previous owner.
City Housing Department officials say they will soon begin making repairs to at least one apartment and send the bill to the landlord.
