If your building is located in the city of New York, you may want to explore the idea getting a housing inspector to come to the building to determine if the "condition" creates a danger to the health and safety of the tenants. Generally the New York City Housing Inspectors are imbued with responsibility to determine if a "condition" violates either the Housing Maintenance Code or the Multiple Dwelling Law. Ingress and egress of entrances may be addressed in a Fire Code or elsewhere. You may also wish to send a letter to your landlord, by certified mail, setting forth what you see as the dangers involved, and reminding him/her/it that it can no longer claim that it had no notice of the condition. This may expose the landlord to greater liability in the future, should anything untoward occur.
