Neighbors grew tired of seeing trash surround a nearby abandoned house in Jamaica, Queens, and they contacted NY1 For You for help.
The neighbors contacted NY1 after countless calls to 311 went unaddressed. After some digging, NY1 found the owner of record was deceased, and her family knew nothing about the condition of the house.
Once NY1 contacted the survivors, they cleaned up the house.
"The yard is looking better and I thank News 1," says Franklin.
