The Daily News reports that Public Advocate Bill de Blasio’s office has published its third annual list of the worst apartment buildings and landlords in the city and, according to the ranking, the building with the most violations is in Brooklyn. A 40-unit building at 245 Sullivan Place in Crown Heights has 654 open violations, according to the article, much more than any other in the five boroughs. Here’s the story’s characterization of the state 245 Sullivan is in: “Tenants at the 40-unit complex say they’re sharing their homes with roaches and rats, and struggling to live with crumbling ceilings and exposed wiring. Some apartments lack either electricity, hot water or heat, or a mix of all three.” Tenants say the landlord, who is elderly, hasn’t made repairs in two years. The public advocate’s ranking, which is supposed “to shame landlords into improving conditions,” covers 358 buildings. According to the list’s official website, the building in the city with the second most number of violations is also in Brooklyn: 534 Pennsylvania Avenue, a 32-unit building in East New York, has 485 open violations.
