Community Voices Heard demands funding for NYCHA repairs and capital improvements at a rally at City Hall on Thursday. The group joins with New York City Council members advocating for alternatives to infill housing.
Bronx Council Member Ritchie Torres, Chair of the City Council's Public Housing Committee, says no one is more poorly served than NYCHA residents. He points out that disinvestment by the Federal Government, New York State and the City are responsible for the collapse of NYC Public Housing stock.
