New York City Buildings Department Hits Hurricane Sandy Victims With Housing Violations for Damaged Homes

Breezy Point, New York was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. And, now the Buildings Department is adding insult to injury by hitting already shell-shocked homeowners in the Queens neighborhood with housing violations!

Eric Shawn reports that many homeowners have returned to their damaged homes to find stickers on their doors threatening criminal prosecution for failure to maintain the property.

The Buildings Department says that the stickers are really only meant to bureaucratically document the damage. A spokesman said, “These violations were issued solely to document the damage that occurred, and property owners will not face any penalties as a result.”
