Where NOT to live in Brooklyn

June 18, 2013


Last week AddressReport launched the new "Complaints Notifications" which incorporates data from the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s Housing Code Violation database. The complaints fall into 3 categories:.

  • Class A complaints are minor and non-hazardous (broken doorknobs, cracked tile, etc.)
  • Class B complaints are hazardous (issues like rodents, bed bugs, trash buildup, broken smoke detectors, etc.)
  • Class C complaints are immediately hazardous (lack of heat / hot water / electricity / gas or inadequate fire exits, etc.)
