Sunset Park resident frustrated with leaky hole in apartment

A Sunset Park resident says she's concerned with the gaping hole in her bathroom ceiling, and she says it's been months since her landlord promised

SUNSET PARK - A Sunset Park resident says she's concerned with the gaping hole in her bathroom ceiling, and she says it's been months since her landlord promised to fix it.

Chiffon Hamilton says water gushes from the hole every time her upstairs neighbors take a shower. She also says all the water has caused black mold to develop in her apartment, which is a hazard for her four kids.

Hamilton says the hole appeared eight months ago, and says her landlord fixed it but that it started opening up again over the winter.

Hamilton blames the hole on a leaky pipe that she says she's asked to have fixed at least five times.

The landlord, Crown Holding USA, told News 12 Brooklyn that it's working on the issues.
