An 85-year-old Bronx resident says she has been living with a broken apartment window for months, and that the New York City Housing Authority hasn’t fixed it despite her many complaints.  
Lovely Bowling, resident of the Patterson Houses in Mott Haven, says she has had to use a garbage back to cover her busted window since August. She gets more and more worried as winter approaches.  
“I want them to come and fix this because I can’t take it anymore,” said Bowling. “The kids are cold, my grandson, my great grand, he couldn’t go to school today because he was sick.” 
The family says NYCHA told them it was waiting for new glass to come in before installing a new window.  
They say the window replacement was supposed to happen yesterday, but that now Bowling and her family are being told they have to submit a new ticket for the installation - and it may not be done until December.  
News 12 reached out to NYCHA for a statement on the matter and is awaiting a response.
