Tenants cope with leaky Bed-Stuy building
Tenants of one Bed-Stuy city housing building say they've been coping with leaky ceilings for years, and they're getting fed up.
About a dozen residents who live on the top floor of the Weeksville Garden Houses on Schenectady Avenue say they have gaping holes in their ceilings. Some residents said they have to dump buckets brimming with dirty water and debris on rainy days.
The tenants say they're worried the leaks could lead to health or safety problems.
Officials from the city's housing department say they're working to secure the millions of dollars needed for repairs.
