Is NYC enforcing repairs?

The Flatbush Tenant Coalition fights to keep landlords accountable and accountability means consequences for landlords who don’t comply with NYC’s housing code.  But as Sherryann, one of our Coalition leaders, recently uncovered, NYC fails to enforce consequences for landlords who break the law. This article in the May 4th edition of the Metro newspaper reveals that landlords owe the city nearly $70 MILLION in uncollected charges for emergency repairs!  Would the city go after YOU for a parking ticket?  Then why is a housing code violation any different? http://www.metro.us/newyork/news/2013/05/07/landlords-owe-new-york-city-millions-report/
