NEVER MISS A STORY: GET THE PIX11 NEWS APP FOR IMPORTANT UPDATES

Brooklyn woman who has trouble with stairs stuck in 4th floor apartment

CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — Linda Pierson says she has struggled up five flights of stairs to get to her Sterling place apartment on the fourth floor for over a decade.

Even with numerous doctors notes since 2006, management had not transferred her yet, Pierson said. The notes explain Pierson's difficulties with stairs and explain that the Crown Heights woman needs a ground floor apartment.

"Everyday I struggle," said Pierson. " I can't physically do this anymore."

Pierson prays for strength as she walks up the stairs with the help of a cane.

"It's nearly impossible," she said. "It's terrible."

Dougert Management, the company that runs the building, told PIX11 News, that they are doing everything they can to make it happen for Linda.
