BROOKLYN - Some East New York tenants are piling on the layers just to stay warm in their own homes.

According to residents at 271 Van Siclen Ave., they are once again living without heat and hot water. Some have gone on a rent strike, but say that management uses it against them as a reason why the building isn't heated.

News 12 Brooklyn previously covered the tenants' heat situation. It had been turned back on, but only temporarily.
