Tenants: Leak in Glenmore Plaza has been ongoing for almost 2 years

Glenmore Plaza tenants are calling on NYCHA to address repairs more comprehensively, saying they have dealt with a leak for almost two years.



The Farrell family tells News 12 that they have lost track of the amount of times the leak in their bathroom was merely patched up.



Erica Farrell says that in one instance, her son started having an asthma attack after her power went out due to the leak. She says there was no way to plug in his nebulizer.



"I had to go to a neighbor's house for my son to get on a machine," she says.



A NYCHA spokesperson tells News 12 that what happened to the Farrell family is unacceptable and that it is working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
