BROOKLYN - Some Williamsburg tenants say they've been living a residential nightmare for the past four years.

According to residents, they’re still waiting to get back inside their eight-family building on North 8th Street after their landlord forced them out in 2009 so he could allegedly make repairs.

The tenants claim the owner was intentionally destroying parts of the building to force them out to make more profit, so they took him to court and forced him out instead.

Repairs to the now city-run apartments have been ongoing ever since. The tenants say it's been a long battle between contractors and city agencies, but they're determined to move back soon.
