On Friday April 15th, 2016, Harlem City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito gave presidential candidate Hilary Clinton a tour of a problem-plagued NYCHA building in East Harlem.

Clinton traveled to East 116th Street in Harlem for a tour of the Corsi Houses, a seniors-only New York City Housing Authority building that has struggled with mold, leaks and an inadequate repair system.

“I wanted to come here to really make a very strong plea that we do more when I am president to help the people who live in developments like this,” Clinton said.
