Crown Heights Landlord Harassment, ‘A Living Hell,’ Includes Sewage, Drug Deals: Lawsuit

Over the past six months, 76-year-old Park Place tenant Francis Roberts says he has had sewage bubbling up through his kitchen sink due to broken plumbing and more leaking in front of his bedroom windows from two portable toilets set up outside. He alleges drug deals have taken place in tents set up around his front door where unknown people sleep and that he has woken up to a stranger using his computer at his table. That he has had music blared into his living room 24 hours a day through a hole in the ceiling. All the while, he said, he has seen no action on the increasing deterioration of his garden-floor apartment, which is plagued by mold, leaks, and gas and electricity outages.
