THE BRONX - Some residents in Mount Eden took their landlord to court today for alleged housing violations.

Tenants at 1505 Townsend Ave. say that for years they have had to deal with mold and inconsistent heat and hot water.

They say that because of their recent court action, a few repairs have been made, but not enough.

Tenants say the building is rent-controlled, and they feel like the landlord is trying to drive them out so he can charge someone else more money.

News 12 reached out to the building's manager, Sam Rosen, several times, but have not heard back.
