    Suit Says Faulty Elevators in Public Housing Violate Rights of Tenants

    By MANNY FERNANDEZ NYT

    Published: April 20, 2009


    The city?s public housing agency is violating the rights of tenants with disabilities and other health problems by failing to properly maintain its elevators, leaving them stranded for hours during frequent breakdowns, according to a federal class-action lawsuit expected to be filed Tuesday...

    Phyllis Gonzalez, 61, one of the tenants in the lawsuit, refers to the times when both elevators go out in her building in the Chelsea Houses as ?double-headers.? Ms. Gonzalez, who lives in a 12th-floor apartment and uses a wheelchair because of arthritis and other health problems, recalled the day a few years ago when, during a double-header, she went down 12 flights of stairs, sitting on one step at a time.

    I can't but help think about this vis-a-vis the Obama administration paying $328K to fly one of the Air Force 1 planes low over Manhattan.

    Photo-op vs housing.

    Even a conservative like me thinks this is a no-brainer.
