NYC Public Advocate's Statement On The Arrest Of Nycha Employees In Corruption Case

February 6th, 2024

Press Release

"Our office has consistently raised the failures of management at NYCHA as the worst landlord in the city, but the charges today are nonetheless a staggering statement on the widespread abuses of power and tenant trust at the core of the agency’s deficiencies.

"The shameful conduct alleged ultimately harms not only tenant trust but tenant safety, as it corrupts the repair process and contributes to dangerous conditions at complexes across the city – which can prove deadly, as with the recent death from Legionnaires disease. As the legal process moves forward, accountability for bad actors and implementation of reforms are essential for NYCHA to prove its commitment to repairing both its buildings and the trust of the tenants paying to live there."
