Bronx tenants frustrated with building conditions

THE BRONX - Hundreds of Bronx residents say they are livid that their apartment buildings have been neglected for years.Tenants in buildings on Stratford Avenue, East 172nd Street and University Avenue say their floors are caving in, mold is growing at an alarming rate and security is almost non-existent.

Residents say the buildings used to be owned by Hunter Property Management, but have all recently been foreclosed on by Dime Savings Bank.

Despite Dime Savings Bank taking over the properties, tenants say the bank refuses to do anything to improve their atrocious living conditions.

The Legal Aid Society says the conditions have become so bad that a housing court judge issued a warrant to arrest an executive from Hunter for failure to make repairs.
