BROOKLYN - Residents at the Lafayette Houses are irate after not having heat for more than two weeks.

The New York City Housing Authority says service was interuppted so plumbers could replace a broken supply valve in the hot water tank. However, residents say the repair should happen faster due to the colder temperatures outside.

NYCHA says service should be restored by Friday.
