NYCHA residents in Brownsville without gas, some for months

Some residents of the Langston Hughes Apartments in Brownsville have gone months without cooking gas, according to state Sen. Zellnor Myrie, who has given the New York City Housing Authority a “deadline” of tomorrow to fix the issue.

“It’s unconscionable that tenants at Langston Hughes have been without gas service for months, but what’s most shocking here is that NYCHA has not fixed this issue since it first arose,” said Myrie at a July 29 press conference. “This delay would be unimaginable in other communities, and we’re making it clear that it’s unacceptable in Brownsville too.”
