Residents in the Castle Hill Houses complex in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx are among many New Yorkers still suffering from the large rainfall of the
last few days, the New York Daily News reported. The Faulkner family, for example,
has been battling with large pools of water in their kitchen, even
though recent repairs done at the property are supposed to have
improved the situation. In another apartment, water was running down the wall in the kitchen
of the tenants association president, exacerbating her asthma
condition. Residents said maintenance crews had been repairing the
roof of the housing complex as recently as June. But in another
apartment, plaster fell from the ceiling in to a 15-year-old’s
bedroom. The New York City Housing Authority developments would not
comment on the Castle Hill situation. [NYDN]
