Buildings Dept. Runs Campaign on Illegal Dwellings

Two employees of the NYC Buildings Department were handing out fliers at the 46th Subway stop yesterday, trying to alert residents to the dangers of illegal apartments.

The initiative, which comes about 10 days after three men were killed in a fire in an illegal apartment in Woodside, is being rolled out throughout the five boroughs over the next four weeks, according to one of the Buildings Dept employees. The leaflet was in both English and Spanish.

The flier warns residents that if they live in an attic or a cellar they might be living in an illegal apartment. It also warns against dwelling units that have just one way to get in and out.

Well if you bozos didn’t squander our great country on flippin house to the next sucker people could have afforded a 2 family house and used the basement for themselves.

High home prices are killing America and until we get the guts to say NO to buying a 2 fam house for $700K…and being proud of saying: renting is far cheaper then buying and let the market crash we all will continue to suffer this Chinese torture .
