Brooklyn Housing Struggle
From Russian Forward
May 24- 30, 2002
Beginning in mid-January, your paper (Russian Froward), published
articles about the lottery of apartments in the subsidized housing
units "Amalgamated Warbasse Houses." A month before that
all the residents received letters from the management and directors
about the privatization of Warbasse.
Later, we received more documents about this. In April we were
invited to a gathering at Abraham Lincoln High school to ask questions
about the privatization and the transition from the Mitchell Lama
Even those who know some English, could not understand anything.
What is there to say about the older immigrants who do not speak
any English. After all this is a serious question. But the management,
as we say is behind seven locks, and it's impossible to talk
to anyone. Please help us.
