Elevator contractor pulls a fast one

What happens when a Bronx contractor paid thousands of dollars to fix chronically ill housing project elevators is barred from city work for failing to pay adequate wages?

The Housing Authority hires another company - operating out of the banned firm's office, run by the old company's foreman and using the old outfit's truck.

A Daily News investigation found remarkable similarities between the barred firm, Start Elevator, and the new firm, ETA of New York, hired by the New York City Housing Authority for the same work.

City bans elevator contractor, but 'new' firm shares old office, foreman
