Tenant: Leak drenches Brownsville bedroom
Pauline Garner says what began as a small bubble in her bedroom ceiling turned into a torrential downpour and gaping hole.
"When the water leaks, it sounds like Niagara Falls," says Garner, who lives in a NYCHA apartment at 692 Ralph Ave. "I just want to go down there to housing and ring everybody's neck in there, because I'm getting no progress here."
And then the water led to mold, damaging most of her furniture.
"My kids can't come visit, because they have asthma," Garner says.
NYCHA says it sent plumbers to address the issue Thursday. Once the leak is complete, workers will repair the ceiling, which the agency said will be completed by Monday.
Garner says she wants NYCHA to reimburse her for furniture damaged in the leak.
