Stratford Ave. tenants petition court for help with gas troubles
Tenants living at 1210 Stratford Ave. in Soundview have petitioned the housing court to help with their gas troubles.
The tenants have been without gas for more than a year and they say that's not the only problem. Tenants say their apartments have peeling plaster and exposed pipes. Some say they even have mold in their homes.
Twenty-one tenants are asking the court to appoint an administrator to act on their behalf and be responsible for making sure repairs are done.
This will be the third holiday that the families will have to cook their meals on a hot plate.
