A brief true story about a new landlord with bad motives who was put in
his place. 'Nick' bought the building in July 1996. He decided to cut down
on the water bill. He had a plumber physically cut the water pipes that
supplied running water to the faucets of the bathtubs in our building. The
shower-heads were left alone to keep functioning. The tenants of our
building got a petition together with many signatures requesting that this
action be brought to an immediate hault.The petition was forwarded to DHCR.
Within 3 weeks all pipes and water-flow had been restored at 280-85th in
Brooklyn, NY (during Sep/Oct 1996). We thank DHCR for stepping in and
cleaning house. It's nice to see your tax money going to good use.
