City to fix worst buildings

December 02, 2008 07:58AM

Each year, the law requires the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development to find the worst residential buildings in New York City based on violations and inspections. The agency has spent $10 million on repairs already this year on two-thirds of the worst 200 buildings, and the department has now targeted another 200 buildings. The city goes after the landlords by putting liens on the buildings.
