Tenants at the Manhattanville projects in #Harlem confronted @NYCHA over their RAD/PACT privatization program. Around 70 tenants attended the meeting and almost all were outraged at this scam to hand the projects to the big banks and private corporations
In this video Loretta asks @NYCHA about the troubled history of #PACT and the horrors stories from other developments. Needless to say they refused to give her a straight answer
Brenda exposes how bad #PACT apartments are post-renovation. Full of broken appliances and other problems. @NYCHA tried to dismiss her concerns as stupid and unfounded, but people saw through their lies
Another tenant from #Manhattanville expresses her frustration at @NYCHA for not really listening to what tenants want, and instead charging ahead with the #PACT privatization scheme
The same tenant also expressed her concern about the luxury tower @NYCHA is building at Manhattanville. She noted that they promised similar developments wouldn’t bring #gentrification in #Brooklyn but we all know how that turned out…

Tenants at Jackie Robinson Houses in East Harlem confronted @NYCHA at a #PACT privatization meeting about how these privatization schemes are a scam. Tenants from Manhattanville, who are also fighting privatization, came to support.
@NYCHA, politicians, banks, developers, all try to sell privatization as a good thing for tenants. But when the projects are privatized tenants are displaced, the companies that take over are slumlords worse than #NYCHA, and neighborhoods are gentrified.
Tenants across NYCHA developments are saying NO to privatization, and will rally at City Hall Park next Thursday 7/14 at 1pm to protest @NYCMayor #EricAdams’ privatization of NYCHA.

Grant Houses’s has a broken drain pipe on 430 West 125th Street roof causing floods in peoples apartment. The management office knows about yet never mentioned it to the tenants; people are finding out once their apartments has been flooded out and damaged. This is ongoing as if this post. This has to be addressed ASAP.
