A long list of repairs in three major Crown Heights apartment complexes are getting renewed attention given the fatal fire in the Bronx, which was caused by a faulty space heater.

Tenant leaders in the Ebbets Field apartments, Tivoli Towers and Stoddard Place complexes led a group of elected officials on a tour through their buildings this week in the hopes of correcting long-standing problems, including heat issues, that have spurred even more concern given the January fire.

“There is no reason why we have to continue to explain the conditions these tenants are living in month after month,” Councilmember Crystal Hudson Tweeted from the tours. “We demand safe AND affordable housing, not a compromise of either!”
