Bill de Blasio's Shameful Legacy: Nearly 90 percent of NYCHA apartments lost heat, hot water during winter

NYCHA has never been run worse since Bill de Blasio became mayor. 
A major reason for the decline of the agency is due to a failure to replace institutional knowledge of senior management that has since retired.  As a result, NYCHA is filled with De Blasio cronies that don't have any experience  running a public housing authority.  The results are an agency in disarray like the rest of the De Blasio administration. 
NY Post reports NYCHA developments suffered heat and hot-water outages more than 3,500 times this past winter, leaving 339,000 public-housing residents — or four out of five — in the cold, troubling new statistics show.

The outages struck 259 of the embattled New York City Housing Authority’s 326 developments between Oct. 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019, according to data obtained through a Freedom of Information Law request.

Nearly 400,000 New Yorkers live in NYCHA’s 174,000 apartments and more than 150,000 of those homes — or 87% — lost heat or hot water at some point during the winter season.
