BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Residents of an affordable housing building in Bed-Stuy are complaining about a foul smell around their home.

A spokesperson from the New York City Housing Authority attributes the odor to a drainage clog in the building's crawlspace.

Residents say the building is unlivable and have been complaining for months.

NYCHA says a professional cleaner is being sent to the building to ensure this does not happen again.
