THE BRONX - Tenants at the housing complex recently named after Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor are demanding action, claiming the complex has garbage and rat troubles.

They say trash is building up in hallways because the trash compactor has been out of service for more than a week.

Tenants say the trash buildup has attracted rats, flies and roaches into some of their homes.

News 12 The Bronx reached out to the New York City Housing Authority, who has not yet replied.
