Oh My What Can I Say That Has Not Been Said Before. It Is Now 2P.M. And I Have Spent Another Day Without Heat. I Have Called The Landlord And I Left A Message About No Heat, No Rent.
I Have Called Soraya Huerta The Property Manager And She Said She’ll Look Into It. This Is The Standard M.O. That I Go Through Since December 2010.

When Will I Ever Have A Day That I Do Not Have To Call Either The landlord Or The Property Manager. Where Is This So Called New Housing/Slumlord Initiative That Mayor Bloomberg And City Council Speaker Quinn Have Proposed And Implimented.

Four Months Into 2011 And I Am Still Living In The Gutter With No Heat.

It Is Now 4:15 P.M. Two Hours After I Called, And No Heat. I Had To Result To Cooking Something In The Oven To Keep It Going For Heat.

Well That Is It. I Have Had Enough Of What Has Turned Out To Be Our New Slumlord.

I Have Had To Contact The Public Advocates Office And ( MOPD ) The Mayor‘s Office Of Person’s With Disablities.

HPD Was Contacted On The 17th Of March. I Had To Follow Up And Call Them 24 Hours Later.

I Called The Property Manager And As Usual, Her First Words Were What Does The Thermostat On My Wall Say. I Explained To Her That It Does Not Matter What It Read’s, Because It Will Read Whatever temperature It Is Outside, because There Is No Heat. One Cannot Expect For The Ambient Temperature To Rise Without Any Source Of Heat.

She Really is A Piece of Work. In Any Case I Took A Monkey Wrench And Remove The Radiator To Drain It. That Did The Trick After Tipping This Radiator That Weigh’s A Great Deal. This Is Not Something I Am Supposed To Do To Get Heat, But Damb I Was Cold.

Her response Was That I Am The Only One Complaining, My Response Was That I Do Not Care Who Did Or Didn’t Complain, I Care Only About My Apartment As I Am Only Paying Rent For My Apartment.

I Stated That She Should Not Come Here On The First of The Month, Because I Was Not Giving Her Any Rent Payment For No Service. A Little While later The landlord Called me To Apologise And To Tell me That She Has Ordered Soroya To Pay Me A Visit.

My Neighbor Upstair’s Has Moved Out After Being Threatened By Soraya The Property Manager To Be Taken To Court.

They Wanted To Raise His Rent From $800 To $1,200 Without Any Badly Needed Repair’s Done. This Is What I Call Real Slumlord’s. All Of Which Is Illegal.

Wow. It Has Been A While Since I Last Entered This Press.
Unfortunately Things Have Stood The Same Here. The Landlord Like Many Seem Not To Care, That Their Tenant’s Pay The Rent.

Yet Like The MTA, We Recieve The Same Service’s Or Worse Yet, None At All.

The Hallway Light Has Been Out For The Past Week And A Half,  Not Good For Us.

The Mailbox Is The Worst,  The Key Gets Stuck And I Wrestle With It Everyday,Except On Sunday.

Geez,  I Recall Back On The 18th Of December 2010,  That The New Owner’s Of The Building Promised To Make Repair’s In January 2011.

It Is Now The 21st Of March 2011, And All Is The Same, Except One Thing, That Is The Front Boor Of The Building.

They Repaired The Door Locking Mechanism, Only Because The HPD Inspector Got Stuck In The Building And Could Not Exit Out Of The Building.

Whatever Happened To Mayor Bloomberg And HPD Commissioner Cestero’s Much Touted Proactive Building Inspection’s And Preservation Program.

I Guess The City Council And The Speaker Have Much More Important Thing’s To Take Of, Like Working On A 3 Billion Dollar Citywide Waterfront Project.

Or Some Councilmembers, Like Mellissa Mark-Viverito, Have To Take Care Of Their Properties That Are Not Disclosed, Nor Their Income’s.

Hey At Least Brooklyn Got Some Bit Of Good News, When They Indicted Senator Carl Krugar And Assemblyman William Boyland, This Last One Called Me A Loser On Facebook Because I Would Not Support His Sister Tracy Boyland, Who Lost Her Bid For A City Council Seat, By A Huge Margin During The 2009 City Wide Election’s. That Is One Less Crook The City Inspector’s have To Deal With. What A Relief!

In Any Case Their Is Some Relief For NYC And NY State As A Whole. Their Corrupt Action’s Will Get Some Due Justice.

I Wrote A Letter To Public Advocate Bill de Blasio’s Office, Let’s See What Relief That Bring’s.
