Tenants in Crown Heights are calling on elected officials to do more to block evictions and provide rent relief, as many continue battling with their landlord. 
The landlord at 1616 President St. is considered one of the worst in the city, according to tenants. 
Tenants say they have been on strike for nine months, since May 1, after they say their landlord, Jason Korn, failed to make necessary repairs to apartments. 
They say he has not only failed that specific building but others around the city. 
News 12 reached out to Lilmor Management for a statement both via phone and email and has not heard back yet.
