NY1: NYCHA residents urge management to fix heat issues

Howard Moi is one of the tenants at the Woodside Houses in Queens who say they have been dealing with limited heat and hot water for around a year.

“This weekend, there wasn’t any heat to my building,” Moi said.

Since August of last year — after flooding from Hurricane Ida damaged the heating plant on the grounds — tenants say they have had heat issues.

Even with temporary mobile boilers stationed outside buildings, many say apartments still lack adequate services.

“It’s been terrible because it’s so cold inside the apartments. They’re colder than outside,” Celsa Ruiz, who has lived at the complex since 1981, said.
