QNS: ‘Give us gas and stop playing games’: Queens lawmakers join Flushing Bland Houses residents in

Several Queens lawmakers joined residents of Bland Houses in Flushing on Tuesday, Oct. 4, calling on the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) to expedite gas service, after residents in one building have been without gas for the past five months due to a leak in the main line.

Councilwoman Sandra Ung was joined by Congresswoman Grace Meng, Senator John Liu and Assemblyman Ron Kim along with Bland Houses Tenants Association President Bridget Marachlian for a press conference outside of Bland Houses, located at 133-20 Roosevelt Ave., demanding answers from NYCHA on the issue.

“NYCHA, why are you dragging your feet? Let’s have transparency. What are we waiting for?” Marachlian said. “Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I already know we are not going to have gas. I said I would work with NYCHA, but this is not working with our residents. We need our gas back on.”
