Breukelen Houses tenants demand more safety
Public housing residents in Canarsie are calling on NYCHA officials to step up and improve safety in their neighborhood.
Tenants living in the Breukelen Houses say they are fed up with crime in their neighborhood that they say could be significantly reduced with increased safety measures.
A group of tenants gathered outside the housing complex Saturday afternoon, calling for something to be done.
At Mayor Bill de Blasio's State of the City address, he said his administration is making an unprecedented investment in public housing - $1 billion - but that money is said to be going toward roof repairs.
In a statement, a NYCHA said it is working to make the community safer and that it did install some cameras at developments last year, including at the Breukelen Houses.
