Janice Rodriguez says the smell inside the Pomonok Houses where she lives with her children is unbearable.
"It's smells like raw sewage in our lobby, in our elevator, in our hallways, and even inside our homes," said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says she worries for the dozens of families who live inside the city complex, including her grandchildren.
PIX11 news reached out to the New York City Housing Authority.
A spokesperson says,"This situation is unacceptable and our residents deserve better. This morning, the clogged sewer line was cleared and the area was disinfected.”
