From the Queens Tribune:
Huddled in the crawl space under one of Bell Park Garden’s units, Fabio Morales only took a few seconds to find the debris he was looking for. He photographed the crumbling, ashy gray material, bagged it and held it up before a Queens Tribune reporter.
“I’m positive this is asbestos,” Morales said. “If you test it, you’ll see.”
He turned the reporter’s attention to two heating pipes running the length of the ceiling, one with new white insulation, the other in crumbling disarray.
“They were supposed to put the new insulation on both pipes, but as you can see…” he said. “This is the situation going on all over the place.”
Bell Park Gardens’ board and property manager responded with assurances everything was up to par.
