: I have a lease at 1 West Street -- an office building conversion at the foot of the West Side Highway (formerly 17 Battery Place). The construction has been a fiasco. We have had innumerable delays and still have incomplete residences and common areas. The roof leaks and we have had numerous flooded apartments. There has been a fire. Currently, many apartments have no heat. The gas has been turned off due to a leak somewhere in the building and Con Ed will not turn it back on until management finds the leak.

: I do not want to move out as the building is lovely and i waited a year to get this apartment. Is there any way I can secure appropriate rent credits for non-provision of services?

Organize some of your neighbors/tenants; apporach landlord en force. Strength in numbers.

Help in doing this available on Tenant Net (in NY Tenants section? search for "organiz").
