LOWER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (PIX11) — A Lower East Side grandma said she’s tired of waiting for New York City to finish repairs in her kitchen.
Magaly González, 55, said NYCHA repair teams came to replace her cabinets and she said they caused many more problems. Because of this, her kitchen is now off-limits to her grandkids and Yorkie Milo as it looks like a construction site.
González is the rock of her family. She usually cooks for her five grandchildren in her kitchen at the Baruch Houses on the Lower East Side, but not recently.
More Monica makes it possible
She posted her frustration on TikTok in Spanish and English. The conditions in her kitchen, she said, break her heart and make her sick.
PIX11 News visited her apartment on Monday and saw the problems from floor to ceiling. To avoid the toxic situation, she put her refrigerator in the living room.
González said the problem started on February 1. She’s looking forward to the teams finally swapping out their cabinets and sink. González showed PIX11News repair tickets she’s filed since February.
González wants them to come back and finish the job.
“NYCHA personnel have completed an initial inspection and environmental testing is underway to determine immediate next steps,” a NYCHA spokesman told PIX11 News. “We have been working with the resident to plan for repairs to be carried out after any mitigation measures are required.”
