Mrs Handari, The inspector said she spoke with the resident in 2R, which we have listed in our reccords as your address. She also said that no other residents are filing complaints in your building. Encourage them to do so if their heat is not working properly. The same inspector met with you last year as well when the heat was not functioning. I have referred your case to her for assistance once again and I encourage you to speak with her or any HPD inspector that contacts you and relay all the details you have posted here. Our office can only continue to refer your problems to HPD. They are the agency that will ultimately be able to assist you and compel your landlord to ensure proper heating. Please file additional complaints with 311 on days you do not have heat.

Hello Mrs. Handari, I spoke with an HPD Inspector who confirmed that she was at your building three days ago. The Inspector said she spoke with you and you confirmed that your heat was working. Now you are posting that you have not had heat in your bedroom for 2 months. When you speak with HPD inspectors and post complaints here, please make sure to provide the correct information. It will be difficult to assist you otherwise. The complaint you filed today was received by HPD. They will be contacting your building manager and also responding to you directly within the next three days. Please make sure to provide this HPD inspector with as much information as possible. HPD is the city agency that will be able to assist you with the resolution of any and all heating complaints. Regarding the leak complaint, you must report this condition separately to 311 and submit the tracking number to our office for follow-up with HPD. Thank you.

Project Sweep: Supported Employment - In operation since 1990, Project Sweep is one of New York City’s oldest supported employment programs. Project Sweep workers clean commercial streets and clean offices for local businesses, merchant associations, and business improvement districts. Current sites include the Pitkin Avenue BID, Newkirk Plaza, Cortelyou Road Merchants Association, and East Brooklyn Industrial BID. Some Project Sweep workers do messenger work or are trained as clerical/administrative workers. Workers are supervised by Job Coaches, who meet regularly in one-on-one meetings with workers. As reported in the previous CB14 post, Project Sweep workers are working at Newkirk Plaza Mon-Sat and funding is currently being identified to include Sundays as well. Your statement about "no trash management on the busiest two days of the week" is inaccurate. Please file any additional complaints with 311. This will assist with the tracking of complaints on a city level. For more information about Project Sweep, please visit the following link - middev.org/projectsweep.

CB 14 continues to forward these comments and discuss the issues raised here with the organizations who manage the program (Project Sweep & FDC) responsible for the sweeping and basket maintenance on the Plaza. The Dept of Sanitation is responsible for picking up from the corner but not from the Plaza. Please be advised that Project Sweep does not work on Sundays, though a request has been placed with local elected officials to fund workers at the plaza on Sunday as well. Project Sweep workers are currently on the Plaza from Monday-Saturday, which is why you will note an increase in litter on Sundays. The MTA is not responsible for the litter pick-up at this location.

This issue is closed. Please post a new complaint if another issue arises. Surely the police car is not still double-parked at the location. Thank you.
