The Public Advocate’s office also says NYC has become the most expensive city in the world.
“Rents are becoming unaffordable and conditions are becoming unlivable,” said Williams. “Landlords are putting profits over people and circumventing or repealing housing laws rather than following them. We need to meet this crisis with strong regulations and real consequences. That means the city needs to dismiss disingenuous arguments from bad actors and invest more resources for enforcement, not cut what we have.”
NYCHA has a whopping 673,990 open work orders, an increase of 73,510 over 2021’s statistics. In a year that saw an arsenic poisoning scare and the CEO of NYCHA step down, the housing authority itself remains the overall worst landlord in the city.
