180 Edgecombe Avenue New york, NY - Harlem
Precise Management at 68 Jay Street Brooklyn, NY 11201 has no and does not provide the tenants of 180 Edgecombe Ave with heat or hot water. Tenants have and do file complaints with 311 but to no avail the problem continues to persist. We at best have heat if we are lucky for two days out of the week. HPD always seems to show the day we get it so we look like lairs. It frustrating to no end. there are other problems in the building as well concerning water damage, we don't have a live in super so no one cares how long we freeze. Calling management is met with voicemail and or a answering service who typically hangs up the phone on you if you don't answer all there questions, such as you name while you are happy to give apartment number which reveals the tenant of the unit. Here is a article from the Daily News on our building http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/uptown/cold-@#$%-edgecombe-ave-article-1.1247310 . Since HPD isn't doing anything and DHCR won't give us rent back who can we turn to?
718 West 184th Street New York, NY 10033, USA - Washington Heights
Traffic in Bennett needs a stop sign. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic and drivers on 184 th can't see past the parked cars to tell if anyone is coming up Bennett until they are out in the traffic lane and at risk of causing an accident.
246 Dyckman St New York, NY 10034, USA - Inwood
Dyckman Street from Broadway west has become a zoo... drag racing, car radios blaring, too many liquor-filled patrons sitting in outdoor cafes and hanging around being obnoxiously LOUD until the wee hours of the a.m.
Weekends are impossible to bear - residents are at their wits' end and the NYPD has nuthin' to say about it all.
WHY does the SLA keep granting licenses in this area??
400-450 Cabrini Blvd New York, NY 10040, USA - Washington Heights
For several years now, there have been almost weekly break-ins to cars parked along Cabrini Boulevard between 190th street and the entrance to Fort Tryon Park. Glass litters the sidewalks every 50 feet. Robert Jackson once told me he was putting in for $ to install cameras, but nothing has happened. It's an ongoing problem that has affected just about everyone I know in the neighborhood at least once.
835 Riverside Drive New York, NY 10032 - Washington Heights
Hot water is not reliably provided to residents. Problem affects whole building and has been reported repeatedly to management and to 311, but it persists. We never know when we turn on the hot water faucet whether the water will be warm or ice cold. Super is unreachable when it happens and the repair number given by management goes to an answering service.
255 W 187th St New York, NY 10040, USA - Washington Heights
Our hot water goes completely out several times a day, and has for over a year now. The overall pressure is very, very weak. And the temperature is barely "warm" (we never turn on the cold water in the shower). We brought this matter to the building's attention the day we moved in, and have been brushed off ever since. We've filed multiple (successful) complaints with the City, but the Super, and the Building Condo Board still refuse to do anything to help us.

George Washington Bridge & Hwy 9 New York, NY 10033, USA - Washington Heights
Stairs from Riverside Dr to NY-9A dead-end at a fence piled with trash. This is a very dangerous situation, particularly given the seclusion and length of the stairs. The sidewalk should be cleared and the steps should be repaired to facilitate pedestrian movement between Fort Washington Park and Washington Heights.
Margaret Corbin Circle new york, ny 10040 - Washington Heights
The stairs and path leading from the East side of Margaret Corbin Circle along the north slope down to Broadway -- all the street lights are out. It's unsafe not only for the lights, but it's a "cruising" spot for public gay sex and drug use, so keep your children away. I've had to walk past men openly masturbating and leering at me. Lots of litter down the slope from people who hang out there.
201 Cabrini Boulevard New York, NY - Washington Heights
Small construction site, abandoned in 2005, has protruding construction fence--blocking 2/3 of passage on the sidewalk--as well as treacherous broken concrete walkway and curb (from dragging broken schist across it). Department of Transportation will not act on this, although it issues citations for far lesser violations.

E & M Associates - Moved in Oct 1st and have yet to have heat that has lasted longer than an hour. At first, the building's heat wasn't on. Then, it was just my heat that doesn't work. It will randomly go on for about 45 minutes every couple of days, and then suddenly shut off. The superintendent doesn't speak English and doesn't understand why I don't have heat when the rest of the building does. The management company hears my problem, and then tells me they will call me back and hangs up. I have yet to receive a call back after over a month of trying. I'm at a loss as to what I should do next. Do I just call a mechanic myself and pay for the repairs? I really can't afford a space heater or the electricity bills, and since my landlord is breaking the law by not providing me with heat, shouldn't they be paying for a heater or mechanic for me?
