THE BRONX - Residents on Aqueduct Avenue say they are living in unsafe conditions and have called on the city for help.

Tenants and elected officials are speaking up against a local management company that has allegedly failed to maintain its buildings, leaving the structures in disrepair.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D - 3rd District) says the buildings' debt also poses a problem.

She says LNR, the company that controls the buildings' $35-million mortgage, is planning to transfer the debt, making the financial hole deeper. Housing advocates are now calling for a court-appointed building manager, hoping all rent will be put toward building repairs.
