As of today, there are 157 open housing and maintenance code violations issued by HPD to the landlord of 114 E.1st Street.

With 129 open Class B and C violations and 33 units registered in the building, the landlord of 114 E.1st Street meets the qualifications for the Worst Landlords Watch List compiled by the Public Advocate for the City of New York, Letitia James.  "For a landlord to be added to the Watch List, they must own a building with fewer than 35 units with an average of at least three open, serious violations (B and C violations) per unit."

  1. Rat mite infestation seem to be the largest issue at the moment. HPD does not have rat mite complaint "box" which makes the problem formally invisible.
