Feds target Flatbush Gardens

From WPIX:

Deplorable working conditions in Flatbush Gardens are now being targeted by the federal government.

The massive Foster Ave. housing complex is made up of 59 buildings and is home to 10,000 residents. After years of complaints from workers, the U.S Labor Department has finally stepped in, and Tuesday the agency issued 20 violations and 51,000 dollars worth of fines to the building management, Renaissance Equity Holdings.

"We complained and said that we need protection," said one maintenance worker.

The deplorable conditions reportedly include several 'serious violations', which, according to the Department of Labor, occur when there is substantial probability of death or serious physical injury that could result from the hazardous conditions.

Many complaints, over many years at a massive project.

So much for the tweeding Democratic Machine.

The real face emerges: when it comes to development and real estate we are just so much bits of background scenery.

There's nothing about Queens today.
Maybe a name change is in order.

Actually, I am not on vacation and no one is filling in. Good Friday is a holiday for most, traffic to the site is low, and I intentionally posted items that were not specifically about Queens but were related to topics that were brought up in the past.

And if you don't like the way I do my own blog, try running your own.
