Bed-Stuy Tenants Living In 'Squalor' For Years Sue Landlord: Docs

Rodents, insects, mold, lead, crumbling ceilings and other conditions at a MacDonough Street building have grown so dire that even a longtime tenants’ attorney couldn’t believe her eyes, according to a new lawsuit.

Two tenants at the 25 MacDonough St. building sued their landlord for what they call years of worsening “squalor” at the 19-unit building, records show.

“In my over decade experience as exclusively a landlord tenant attorney, I have very rarely seen this much neglect,” their attorney Altagracia Pierre-Outerbridge told Patch. “And I have seen a lot.”

The MacDonough Street tenants have been living with pests, electricity outages, mold, lead and no gas for years, according to the suit.
