I am addressing my comment to ANDREW11. Its people like you that make living in low income housing HORRIBLE.
1. My rent is close to $1, 000 per month not 300 as you stated
2. I have a job!
3. I do not own a car
4. My apartment is impeccable, you can eat off the floors
5. I am a single mother of 3 children and I DO NOT NOR HAVE I EVER COLLECTED AND GOVERNMENT FUNDS ie food stamps, welfare, section 8 NOTHING.
Obviously you have never visited every apartment the NYCHA owns. You comments are untrue and ignorant. If you do not like your job, quit! Let someone else have your that actually WANTS TO WORK!
Who are you to pass judgement on the entire housing community? Regardless of where you live, if you pay rent you are entitled to fair treatment. I for one have been without a bathroom for 2 weeks, because the ceiling collapsed from a leaking pipes. One of my children is disabled, she cannot live in those type of conditions. Housing just gives you the run around, or just put a "Band-aide" on it. I have missed countless days of work, only for them to try and place blame on you as to why they are NOT CAPABLE NOR QUALIFIED to do their jobs. How does this fall in the " YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" category? I pay my rent on-time every month and all the extra fees they impose on you without prior written notification.
I agree that the city spends way to much money to contract people like you WHO DONT WANT TO WORK! So why are you complaining???? Your no better than the people who collect welfare & food stamps, because you ALSO COLLECT GOVERNMENT FUNDS TO SIT ON YOUR BUTT & DO NOTHING!
