Freezing Brooklyn Tenants Still Waiting Long After Deal to Rescue Buildings From Bankrupt ‘Worst Landlord’ Nonprofit
More than a year after a court ordered the sale of five dilapidated Brooklyn buildings tied to NEBHDCo, red tape keeps frustrated residents on ice.
Once a complex enters the Rental Assistance Demonstration program, where private developers run public housing, online repair and outage reports stop.
City deed restriction removal paved the way for a court-ordered $12 million sale of a historic building supposed to be used for "youth development."
NEBHDCo, entrusted by the city with nearly 1,000 Brooklyn apartments, strikes a tentative deal to sell some buildings amid violations and bankruptcy.
