BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn — A Brooklyn mom has spent years battling mold in her home at the Van Dyke Houses in Brooklyn.

Clenora Jackson said the worst spot in her house is inside her  7-year-old daughter's bedroom.

"I've put in so many tickets for repairs, she's lost count," said Jackson.

PIX11 News reached out to the New York City Housing Authority for answers.

A spokesperson said, "We strive to provide every resident a safe, clean home. This is unacceptable. Our staff is working with the resident to make necessary repairs as quickly as possible and to ensure this issue does not return.”
