At the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 the building door rarely worked/was open, strangers were found sleeping under the steps and men, workers were staying in the open gutted hazardous apartment 1C. (Tenants electric bill skyrocketed.) Police were not called then, but in effort to disparage tenants, the landlord told DHCR otherwise.
In the first video, the property manager claims he had no idea anyone was staying in the gutted apartment, they don’t work for him, it’s trespassing. He tells tenants to call the cops if anyone is in there.
In the second, January 2019, they falsely claim to DHCR that tenants harass workers, call the cops all of the time, and at the same time admitted they let workers stay in the hazardous apartment.
