BROOKLYN - Some Brooklyn and city apartments used to get homeless New Yorkers off the streets are teaming with hazardous paint, according to a report.
According to the Daily News, about 700 units used in the Housing Stability Plus program tested positive for lead. The Department of Homeless Services, which places families in housing through the program, says it inspects all units. However, officials admit they don't test for lead.
Lead paint has been linked to attention deficit disorder, behavioral problems and kidney damage.
