Garodnick Hosts Forum for 2nd Ave. Tenants Facing Relocation
Council Member Garodnick brought MTA officials to hear residents' concerns and explain to them exactly what lies ahead after the agency informed tenants that some of them would have to be temporarily relocated due to deteriorating building conditions in the path of the Second Avenue Subway.
In a letter to the MTA signed by every local elected official in the construction zone, Garodnick wrote, "We recognize that these are old buildings, but there are concerns that the deterioration is being exacerbated as a direct result of construction of the Second Avenue Subway. We are also concerned that there may be other buildings that you have not yet identified that could have similar issues."
