•     Current, reader-friendly information about policy issues and changes—city, state, and Washington—that impact NYCHA residents.
•     Action alerts about upcoming hearings, press conferences, mobilizations, forums, and other events.
•     Easy ways to send messages to elected officials and decision-makers.
•     Links to articles, reports, other more detailed information sources.

You will receive "NYCHA Need to Know" unless you ask to be taken off our email list. Please ask your neighbors and friends if they want to be plugged in and added to our email list.

 Why doesn't Jimmy Van Bramer ever point the finger at NYCHA?

Is NYCHA at all responsible [due to contributory negligence] for violence that happens? What do you think?
If NYC Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer was concerned about NYCHA's gross negligence and depraved indifference when it comes to tenant safety safety at Queensbridge Houses, he would kick NYCHA's ass about their neglect of unlocked lobby doors and light outages that ensure the get-aways of criminals.

What is little talked about, is that NYCHA has past history of deliberately leaving lobby doors unlocked to punish tenants for not "Volunteering" for Tenant Patrol [or whatever that protection racket is now called]. Crime victims' attorney should contact us for more information.

This is from Twitter. Can someone please tell us if there is any truth to this:

If changed to RAD:
Management is under no obligation to fill vacancies with new Section 8 tenants right away. If a unit has been vacant for two years at the time of the application, housing authorities and the developer can demolish the unit without replacing it.

HUD Lied to Protect NYCHA Protection Racket

@LynnePattonHUD called us #FakeNews

See below and YOU be the judge!

@LynnePattonHUD says
"sit down before you hurt yourself, my friend"

@LynnePattonHUD called us #FakeNews and April Ryan "Miss Piggy"

This apparent graduate from the Trump University
Charm School may very well hurt herself.

We will posting info here to show how HUD aided and abetted NYCHA's depraved indifference to tenant safety and looked the other way at corruption.

Item #1 which resulted from tenants complaining about NYCHA unlocked lobby doors.

Exact statement from HUD letter to us:

" ...there does exist a housing policy which states that lobby doors should not be locked unless there is an active tenant patrol to open the door for visitors."

This shows HUD depraved indifference and worse; CONDONING A PROTECTION RACKET!
"Aiding and abetting"

Extortion [free labor as Tenant Patrol 'volunteer'] we believe may be a fulfilling requirement for invocation of Federal and/or State RICO Acts.

Copies of full correspondence backing up above and forthcoming allegations have been given to NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, other politicians and members of the media.

Item #2 HUD lied to cover up for NYCHA in letter stating:
"Robert Ramirez, General Engineer, P.E., and Gwendolyn Pueblo, General Engineer of this office, visited your
apartment...It appears that the majority of the tenants prefer an unlocked door because of its convenience."
Gwendolyn Pueblo stated that she surveyed EVERY APARTMENT and that tenants said they preferred unlocked lobby door.


Here below sworn and notarized statement shows that tenants were NEVER surveyed and that heads of household want investigation and prosecution of HUD employees


Item #3: connection between  HUD, NYCHA and mob contractors

@LynnePattonHUD says HERE
"...b/c of an intense 3-year HUD investigation by the #SDNY that uncovered systematic deception..."

@LynnePattonHUD fails to mention that #SDNY does NOT cover all of NYCHA
Boro          DOJ      projects apartments
Manhattan SDNY    97        52999
Brooklyn   EDNY    99        58447

SD NY, is where U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, fought corruption and financial fraud until he was fired by President Trump.
Was he closing in on HUD when fired?
Fired Preet Bharara speaks about corrupt #NYCHA HERE

Brooklyn in US DOJ ED NY is where final trial was held for @NYCHA Queensbridge contractor John Gotti. So many boxes of court docs at Cadman Plaza that it took two trips [and TWO people] to review. See #EDNY Mary Jo White

John Gotti was involved with NYCHA in jurisdiction of US DOJ EDNY. HUD knew about it!

Sam Pierce and Gotti
Samuel Pierce later took the Fifth.

President Trump has said:
“The mob takes the Fifth Amendment.”

"... many of Pierce's closest aides and confidants at the department were charged and convicted on felony charges"

Item #4 Shows a verifiable communique generated by HUD giving OK to NYCHA organized crime connected contractor.
HUD says Arc OK
Before @LynnePattonHUD TRUMPets #FakeNews again
she should check HUD correspondence files for original.

Item #5 Sex for Repairs

What is HUD's position on trading sex for NYCHA repairs?

Can US D HUD IG Office Be Trusted to Investigate?
Some people in the Department of Housing and Urban Development Inspector General's office were suspended for downloading pornography as reported HERE

Items #6 thru #999

To assure @LynnePattonHUD that we are NOT #FakeNerws
fake news
we will release more verifiable soon as either NYCHA or US D HUD become subject of RICO Act investigation.

Has anyone ever sued a neurosurgeon for a lobotomy gone awry?

@LynnePattonHUD says
"I questioned the $17B when I first got here. The new $31.2B number breaks down to $181,714.29 PER UNIT in repairs."

Why is $59 Billion Missing from HUD?

Were Queensbridge intercoms sabotaged to generate new contracts?

Tweeted to
"How could so many Queensbridge Houses intercoms spread over so many buildings from 21 Street to Vernon Boulevard be out of order at same time? This smells."

Did you know that a group of Queensbridge Houses tenants headed by board members of the Queensbridge Tenant Association picketed HUD at 26 Federal Plaza because of corruption concerns? The Queensbridge Tenant Association President was allowed into the HUD offices and was subsequently thrown out!

Ben Carson has called HUD "Most Corrupt Federal Department"

NYCHA Cover Ups Involve the Mayor and Police

TRANSCRIPT: Mayor Seemingly Implicates NYPD Housing Bureau Police Commander in Queensbridge Murder Cover Up

Mayor at Queensbridge Talks About Roofs 

April 5, 2018 Mayor de Blasio held a rooftop press conference to tout roof renovations completed in 2016. He was flanked by Senior Citizens who were cajoled to leave a warm Senior Citizen Center to stand by him on a cold windy rooftop.

At an August 24, 2015 press conference, below, announcing new roofs the Mayor had NYPD  keep the same Queensbridge Seniors fifty feet away behind stanchions. It was so hard to hear anything, many left in disgust! We were not allowed close media coverage.

roof PR

Why the sudden affinity for the NYCHA Seniors?

Maybe Mayor de Blasio thinks it easy to bamboozle them!

Queensbridge Roofs were Finished in 2016

From 2018 Transcript:


[Inaudible] comment about this. Safety at Queensbridge, specifically, I know you were here about a year-and-half ago talking about reducing gun violence and crime. And I know in the last couple of weeks there was a homicide here. Back in January a woman was hit by a stray bullet just leaving the subway station in Queensbridge. Are things getting safer? Are residents feeling safer? Are these isolated incidents? Is it getting safer?


 Sure, I’ll certainly let April speak to that too. I want to tell you because I just spoke to the PSA commander on that. There was a homicide. It was not at Queensbridge. It was nearby.

NYCHA Employee Whistle Blower Comes Forward

There are more whistle blower testimonies in the can. NYCHA EMPLOYEES, come forward

Retaliation and intimidation? Lower East Side mom says NYCHA tried to evict her after PIX11 report. Us too; See below

Another NYCHA Whistle Blower Speaks:

I hope, but don’t expect, the current political dustup winds up with some relief for the tenants. But, until the various NYCHA Inspector ranks are held to a high standard, backed up by JAIL TIME FOR ANY PROOF OF BRIBERY, nothing will change.

You can award contracts for boiler maintenance and repair, for asbestos removal and lead paint removal.


Why should a contractor spends hundreds of thousands of dollars (from a city contract, paid by us all) remediating problems, when a low 5 figure bribe gets a corrupt inspector to sign off on all payments? (If you think “nobody would allow themselves to be bought off to aid in ruining children’s health, you better wake up – while your health still allows you to be woke!

Watching local news recently, I can’t help but remember, back when Cuomo was running HUD, how he told Polly Kreisman (on camera) in response to her question about my whistle-blowing, that he’d be speaking with me in the near future about NYCHA corruption. That was back in 1997, and, though my address and phone number have not changed, I’m still waiting.

And every time I hear the “shock” over discovering lead paint in apartments that were listed as having been cleared by NYCHA, I wonder “Do these idiots think the lead paint was put on recently?”

The lead paint in those apartments was applied many, many moons ago.

In the NYCHA Spotlight, I had tape of an inspector confessing to be among a group of NYCHA contract inspectors getting paid off to certify that lead paint, asbestos and other problems had been fixed, and payments to contractors were then made.

Monetary enrichment of both contractor and Inspector. A true Win-Win! Unless you factor in the health of the unwitting tenants and any children in the NYCHA apartment that was “certified” safe!

Inspections done years ago may
1) have been certified clean by a dirty inspector and/or

NYCHA Snicker Line

You complain,

Beware NYCHA Retaliation!

See one tenant's NYCHA problems September 2016 video HERE

Lady has gone to court with problems. Now NYCHA wants to retaliate by moving family to worse place!
The NY Daily news has a report about a tenant who complained about mold. To get even they started eviction proceedings against her with such charges as unregistered dog. She was able to prove that her dog was registered with NYCHA. They used other phony retaliatory charges.

We know this can happen, as we ourselves were subjected to same underhanded treatment by Queensbridge Houses management. We were [among other things] accused of having an unauthorized air conditioner. We were able to prove that we had been paying NYCHA extra monthly money for TEN YEARS for air conditioner electricity. Maybe a corrupt NYCHA official had siphoned off the money?

Did you know that NYCHA has a history of
to punish tenants?

They have removed lobby door locks where tenants did not "volunteer" for Tenant Patrol duties; sitting as unpaid guards in the lobby. Supervisors of this protection racket got paid.

City of New York would have more money if they weren't paying for so many NYPD lawsuits.

According to records compiled by the Comptroller's Office, New York City paid out a record $732 million to settle lawsuits in the last fiscal year "New York City's $41 million settlement in the "Central Park Five" lawsuit..."

The city has agreed to pay nearly $600,000 to settle allegations that police wrongfully arrested a group of Occupy Wall Street protesters

New York City has agreed to pay nearly $18 million for the arrest, detention and fingerprinting of hundreds of protesters, journalists, legal observers and bystanders during the 2004 Republican National Convention?

$333K in settlements: High Ranking NYPD Cop, Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna, gassed prisoners.

There was a separate settlement for NYC Councillor Ydanis Rodríguez

We I enjoyed our visit to THE HUNTRESS on 41 Avenue

We originally ate at that location in 1970s when it was a Chinese restaurant

There is a citibikenyc dock at the restaurant which was not there in the 1970s. Several riders used it while we were there.

We read every posted Yelp review and owner replies.

One reviewer wrote "Tiny portions!! I ordered the duck breast, for $20 it was a complete waste of money. It was in a tiny brown bowl the size of my iPhone! Never again will I go here!!"; while another reviewer wrote "I had the duck "canard au vin" and it was beyond delicious. Seared with a cranberry orange chutney and some roasted potatoes." I agree with the second reviewer. I highly recommend the dish.

Rita had wings which she thoroughly enjoyed. They had plenty of meat. She gave 2 wings to me.

An ideal time to arrive may be an hour before sunset as at sunset a "magic lantern" projects a likeness of the Huntress to a wall across the street. With current earlier sunsets we will look for it when we walk by on our way to Dutch Kills Civic Association meetings. Their electric gas lamps are really good. Most authentic looking I have ever seen.

I thought at first music was too loud but got into it. Rita sang along with songs and almost got up to dance.

They lose one star as the advertised WiFi does not exist.

We had been looking forward to visit again or to their other place The Baroness until we saw the following interchange which causes them to lose another star.

B.P. 1/3/2019:
Warm beer. Illegal $20 credit card minimum (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 prohibits anything above $10).

Comment from Ess H. of THE HUNTRESS whiskey n' wings:
A. Your review is literally comical to onlookers that state legislation. Seriously...
You don’t like us. We don’t like you. Let’s keep it at that. Goodbye.

That raises red flags to me as it indicates a sneering attitude towards laws and regs. Se we decided to look up their Department of Health Reviews HERE

See Case 1:18-cv-05213-WHP Document 11 at 
210.     Another former NYCHA exterminator, described a culture where exterminators were directed to “fake it.” This meant that exterminators would sometimes spray water instead of pesticides when the necessary pesticides were in short supply. Exterminators would also close out work orders as “tenant not home” without confirming that was the case when they were given too many orders in one day. These practices were known, sanctioned, and encouraged by the exterminator’s supervisor.
