New York’s annual “Worst Landlord Watch List” was released last week and it included a poorly-run building in Sunnyside and one in Woodside.
The list, released by Public Advocate Letitia James, reported that the third worst building in Queens—in terms of violations—is located at 43-15 46th Street.
The building, which is a 6-story 88-unit complex, has 271 outstanding violations, according to the report. While the building is a coop, it has several renters—although the exact number is not known.
The original landlord, who took the building coop about 25 years ago, rents several units, according to published reports.
The violations, which have been filed with HPD, deal with water leaks, missing smoke detectors, loose bathroom tiles, mold and defective faucets.
The managing agent of the building is Aras Properties, which is located in Cedarhurst. The head officer is Kevin Kane, who could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, the landlord who runs a Woodside building has the fifth worst record in Queens, with 223 violations.
The building, located at 39-30 59th Street, is a 6-story 78 unit complex.
The violations include complaint about roaches, defective plastered surfaces, broken stoves, mold and missing smoke detectors.
The owner of the building is Harry Silverstein. Silverstein could not be reached for comment.
