BROOKLYN — “Jamming a traffic cone to cover my pipe is not a repair.”
With a new baby boy at home, Ebony China said her apartment is a health hazard. She described it as an obstacle course, with tiles coming off of her floors, mold in her bathroom, and what appears to be a traffic cone holding it all together.
“They put a hole in my ceiling, then put a cone to cover my pipe. It’s been like this for three months,” said China.
China said crews came several months ago to repair a leak in her bathroom and left her bathroom in disarray — and never came back. She said she puts in repair tickets, but nothing gets done.
A NYCHA spokesperson told PIX11: “NYCHA have dispatched maintenance staff to look in to this matter.”
We will make sure China and little Kairo get the repairs they need.
PIX11 will stay on this story.
