“I have leaks, mold, everything is breaking apart, and it’s constant water leaking,” Muriel said.

She said the leak started in January 2017. Then in February, the ceiling in her bathroom really started to open up.

“Now there are three places where the water is coming in. I’m starting to use diapers to absorb all the water,” Muriel said.

A New York City Housing Authority spokesperson said “this situation is unacceptable, our residents deserve better. Today, staff is repairing the leak coming from the apartment above and they are working with the resident to make any necessary repairs urgently.”
