Family says it stores clothes in plastic bags due to NYCHA leaksPosted: Updated:
Latoya Peters lives with her family in NYCHA's Albany Houses, where she says leaks are so bad she keeps her clothes stored in plastic bags and her electronics elevated off the floor.
Leaks and flooding have damaged her dressers and beds, she says, usually during heavy rainstorms.
A video she recorded last year shows how bad conditions get, she says.
And despite multiple visits from NYCHA workers, she says the problems persist.
"I can't entertain nobody," Peters says. "I can't sit in my own apartment. I have no kind of furniture."
NYCHA says it's looking into the matter.
