BROOKLYN - The New York City Housing Authority says it will be addressing the backlog of repairs for the Van Dyke Houses on Dumont Avenue.

One of the repairs it plans to address is scaffolding on the building.

NYCHA officials say the scaffolding, which was put up for construction that was already completed, will be removed,

The scaffolding issue is only one of the 57,000 maintenance orders received by the NYCHA back in August.  

The Public Advocate's Office calls the Van Dyke Houses the worst in Brooklyn when it comes to repairs.
