The New York City Housing Authority Continues Restoration and Remediation Efforts in Housing Developments Impacted by Hurricane Sandy

New York, NY – November 21, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Now that electricity, elevators, heat and hot water have been restored in all developments impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the New York City Housing Authority has moved to the next phase of its recovery plan: remediation and repair for individual housing units. NYCHA will clean and remove mold or mildew created by Hurricane Sandy inside individual apartments, in addition to efforts to remove all trash and debris from hallways, stairs and common areas. The work will first be concentrated in NYCHA developments in Far Rockaway and Coney Island where there was significant flooding.


The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) provides decent and affordable housing in a safe and secure living  environment for low and  moderate- income residents throughout the five boroughs.  To fulfill this mission, NYCHA must preserve its aging housing stock through timely maintenance and modernization of its developments.  NYCHA also administers a citywide Section 8 Leased Housing Program in rental apartments.  Simultaneously, we work to enhance the quality of life at NYCHA by offering our residents opportunities to participate in a multitude of community, educational and recreational programs, as well as job readiness and training initiatives.
