SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Residents at a public housing complex in Sheepshead Bay have been struggling without heat for days.

Tenants at the Nostrand Houses say they've contacted NYCHA for help, but claim their requests have been ignored. Several of the tenants are using their stoves for heat.

Some residents are also concerned because they have relatives living with them who are sick.

NYCHA says it has no reports of a heating outage at the building, but says it encountered a steam pressure issue this morning and fixed it.

Any residents with heat complaints are asked to call NYCHA’s 24-hour customer contact center at 718-707-7771.
