Another 10 buildings in Brownsville and East New York have gotten so many violations that they could face emergency repairs from the city, officials announced.

The 10 buildings — which include 98 homes — were among 250 citywide that were added this week to the city’s Alternate Enforcement Program, which monitors the most distressed multi-family properties across the city.

Under the program, the buildings’ landlords will have four months to fix thousands of open violations or face penalties. The city will step in and make “emergency repairs” at the landlord’s expense if they don’t meet the deadline, according to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
