Another fire in illegally converted home

Tell me it's an immigrant who owns this property. Immigrants are different, they don't have to abide by US law because they are so narcissistic, self centered, could care less how much money the City spends on Fire Department and now medical care for the fire victims.
owners name is Leslyn Brewley. Tell me this person is from the Caribbean, Jamaica or Guyana.
the other property they own is 146-11 Lakewood Avenue, Jamaica, NY 11435.
DOB and the FDNY should go inspect that house, how many bunk beds are in that dump?
from HPD website building in Queens registered to:
BREWLEY LESLYN 138-31 BROOKVILLE BLVD, ROSEDALE, NY 11422
look into that address too, that could be another fire waiting to happen.
1308 Findlay Avenue, Bronx, NY
would be fascinating to check on both properties to see if there are the following:
HP actions from tenants re: lack of essential services,no heat, no hot water vermin, including bed bugs,
illegal lock outs by slumlord
excessive events when slumlord turned off electricity and/or gas.
excessive court actions taken on tenants of illegal SRO
how many times housing court judges ordered the owner to remove appliances from illegal apartments/rooms and when.
Perfect for my jerk beef recipe!
Come back to Jamaica!
DOB and FDNY better start cracking down on all illegal properties in Queens:
South Ozone Park
It appears that the Mayor has let this problem get way out of hand. Who's getting paid off?
Don't leave out Middle Village. I have called 311 and the Department of Buildings numerous times on a illegal basement apartment. They are still renting it. (About 5 yrs now).
Fighting a losing battle. Mayor Bloomberg does not push for enforcement. He thinks there is not enough housing in this city and as long as they are not in Manhattan he don't care!
