Elderly and infirm residents are trapped in their building
Imagine you have no elevator service for a month and you're a senior citizen or have serious health issues.
That's what dozens of residents in a Kew Gardens apartment building are coping with.
"We do the best we can," Sidney Tesher, an 87-year-old tenant of the Austin Street building, told PIX11. "Excuse me for being out of breath."
PIX11 News reached out to the building's management company, PSRS Realty Group, for comment, but has not received a response.
Nobody was working on the elevator when PIX11 was there. The realty group told residents in a sign in the building that elevator service will be restored on Jan. 18.
