BROOKLYN - Residents of a Brooklyn apartment complex say they're still displaced one year after a fire tore through their building and want answers from the building's owner.
Residents were joined by local politicians at a rally yesterday outside the New York Avenue complex, protesting the building's owner. Tenants claim he hasn't made the necessary repairs and they've been unable to go back to their homes since the fire.
Many of the displaced families have been staying at a school shelter nearby. A spokesperson with the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development says there's an ongoing lawsuit with the building's owner. The case has been adjourned until Aug. 6.
