BROOKLYN - Brownsville tenants in one housing complex say NYCHA has left them stranded in the frigid cold.

According to residents at the Howard Avenue Houses, heating has been a problem in their homes for the past two years. They've called the management office repeatedly, but say nothing has been done.

Many complain that their electric bills have skyrocketed to more than $1,200 this winter because they're forced to constantly run electric heaters to stay warm.
