GRAVESEND - A Gravesend woman blames her moldy apartment of nine years for her persistent cough and she wants the management to make changes.

Emilia Martinez, who lives in the Marlboro Houses, says her landlord will only paint over the mold. The management says it doesn?t have the money to get rid of the unsightly mess for good, according to Martinez.

Martinez says nine years is too long to live with black, damp mold covering her kitchen, bedroom and living room. She believes a leaky roof is to blame and she wants city housing officials to look into the problem.
