From the NY Post:
A nonprofit housing-development group run by politically hooked-in Queens pastor Floyd Flake operates like a slumlord, furious tenants charge.
Flake, who lost a bid to develop a video-slots operation at Aqueduct Racetrack, is facing a firestorm of criticism from angry residents of decrepit buildings owned by a firm tied to his Greater Allen AME Church and overseen by his son, Harold Flake.
In 2006, the Allen Affordable Housing Funding Development Corp. took over three city-owned rental buildings in Jamaica with the promise of sprucing them up.
The city Department of Housing Preservation and Development gave Allen Affordable title to the buildings for $1 and provided construction loans to renovate them.
One of them, a two-story building at 163-19 109th Ave., was so structurally unsound that the Buildings Department shut it on Feb. 26, 2009. No work has been done on the building, and Allen's company said it is seeking additional financing.
In the other two buildings, the remaining tenants complain that conditions have gotten worse.
A Post inspection of the buildings found:
* The three-story, 12-unit building at 107-05 Sutphin Blvd. is a shambles. A leaky roof has caused damage, and interior walls are worn away.
"The conditions are deplorable," fumed Frederick Jones, the last remaining tenant.
* A leaky roof at 89-06 138th St. is causing severe water damage.
