BROOKLYN - Fort Greene tenants have taken drastic measures to get repairs done at the Farragut Houses on Nassau Street.

A group of families has filed a lawsuit against NYCHA in an attempt to force the repairs.

A representative from Families United for Racial and Economic Equality says that Housing Prevention and Development (HPD) will be at the apartments sometime next week to verify the complaint. HPD will then reach out to NYCHA to fix the problems.
