I have reported no heat and hot water over 20 times through 311 and HPD. I am asking immediate assistance in aiding me in the right direction to get the landlord to comply with the law
1620 Ditmas Ave. Brooklyn, NY
For the past couple of years, there is a flea market taking place in the driveway of 1620 Ditmas Ave (on E. 17 Street). This is a residential street, zoned R1, in a landmarked district. Business is not supposed to be conducted, especially outside the house. The people who run it don't even live in the house. This takes place EVERY Sunday when the weather is good. You know it's Sunday if they're out there selling.
Something must be done. It is illegal and unsightly.
2230 Beverly Road Brooklyn, New York
Beverly Road is a popular route with cars, trucks and other vehicles going towads and from Flatbush Avenue. Traffic flowing from East 23 Street onto Beverly Road is impeded by this traffic flow and it makes it very difficult to make either a right or left hand turn. Furthermore, trying to ease onto Beverly Road is particularly hard because of parked cars in front of 2230 Beverly Road, which interferes with a driver's vision. The driver has difficulty seeing oncoming traffic already on Beverly Road while attempting to make either a right or left turn from East 23 Street. Easing onto Beverly Road from East 23 Street is extremely and somewhat dangerous.
I would recommend that a traffic study be done on East 23 Street and Beverly Road in order to understand the need for a "No Parking Sign" in front of 2230 Beverly Road or the installation of a traffic light at the corner.
Either choice would benefit all drivers as well as the community.

Since November, we have repeatedly reported problems with heat by text, email, and occassionally phone. Specifically, that it is regularly between 55 and 58, even when the temperature is set at 70, 72, or 74. Last week, one bedroom was 43 and another was 60. The thermostat was at 72. We have worked with the landlords to address the problem -- for example, putting plastic over the windows, and exploring other solutions such as increasing the pressure on the boiler so that heat would distribute better to the other rooms. The problem remains, and turning up the heat is not a solution because the heating system simply does heat the apartment. We have repeatedly reported that when the heat is on or we turn it up the heat, little comes out.
On January 4, we discussed options with the landlord, who identified three problems: 1) insulation was missing from the floor in one of the rooms; 2) three of the rooms did not have an adequate number of heaters installed; and 3) the need to increase the pressure on the boiler. She also thought one bedroom was probably not insulated, but because the room was advertised as a bedroom, it was set up as such.
The increase in boiler pressure did not work. Neither, as far as know or have been told, has work begun to address the other problems the landlord identified. Over the past several weeks, the pilot light has repeatedly blown out, leaving us without heat at all. As of Saturday, Feb. 1st, the repairman had not come. Fixing a pilot light, however, has only ensured that tepid heat comes out.

Vacant property with non-respondent owners do not maintain this lot. Sidewalk and lot litter, waste, dumping, deteriorating construction fence. Local resident use the lot as an illegal parking lot. Multiple unresolved ECB and DoB fines. It is time for Community Board 17 to address this eyesore that chronically collects major violations in default. Thank you.
