‘Worst Landlords’ in NYC: Inside a Hell’s Kitchen apartment house on list for squalor and neglect

Public Advocate Jumaane Williams on Wednesday released his annual list of the “worst landlords” in New York City — revealing some of the horrid conditions which neglectful property owners have forced some Big Apple residents to live with every day. 

The yearly list, which is compiled based on the number of dangerous housing violations given to a landlord’s property, features 100 of the most egregious violators from around the five boroughs, with many renting apartments that suffer from “heat and hot water outages, rodent infestation issues, and deteriorating infrastructure.”
