A woman living in Brooklyn, New York City, shared that she has had a leak in her house since 2018. However, despite asking for help many times, she received no response.
There is nothing more frustrating than living in a place that needs repair and maintenance but doesn’t seem to get any of it. Imagine you are living in a house with a leaky roof, broken ceilings, and shabby floors.
While buildings, especially residences, need maintenance after a while is understandable, problems arise when residents have difficulty getting feedback from responsible parties.

CRISIS LIFE CONDITIONS
Buildings can also be severely damaged by natural disasters, such as floods and earthquakes. It may not be possible to completely prevent the impact of such disasters, but that does not mean that it cannot be reversed or addressed in a timely manner.
Sadly, one Brooklyn mother received nothing when she contacted the relevant authorities about her housing situation, which was more than just an inconvenience.
After several attempts to contact the authorities but received no answer, she decided to do something so others could hear her voice.

Soon after, Chinesta Jenkins contacted Pix11 News, who responded and sent their representative to hear her story. When they asked her why she contacted them, Jenkins reply:
“Because I think you’re the only one who can help me (sic).”
The Pix11 rep was with Jenkins, who showed her the inside of her apartment at Albany Housing.

DON’T FORGET YOUR UMBRELLA
Jenkins, who lives with her daughter, has been sharing how she has had a leak in her house since 2018. She told News about Pix11:
“If I have to get anything out of my closet, (open an umbrella) and I’m standing here like this, especially if it’s raining heavily.”
The Brooklyn mom opens her umbrella and explains how she carries an umbrella every time she travels, especially during heavy rain.

ERROR OF FIRE
Jenkins showed a Pix11 representative his dilapidated house. There were holes in the ceiling and walls of her living room and bedroom. She also to add:
Woman explain Things got even worse after Ida – her house was badly flooded, and the floor and furniture in her living room were also destroyed. Even her mattress got wet.
Jenkins told a Pix11 rep that the flooding also damaged her personal photos, which are intimate and truly memorable photos of her. She then showed her a graduation photo with water stains on it.
Pix11 News has reached out to the New York City Housing Authority about the matter. An NYCHA spokesman responded, saying that the bricklayers had scheduled repairs to the exterior wall on September 17.
Furthermore, the spokesperson said that once completed, they will schedule maintenance inside apartment. We just hope that things have turned out for the better for Jenkins and her daughter.
