Ridgewood Kids Get Lesson from Hpd

Fifth-graders at P.S. 88 in Ridgewood got a special lesson in how the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) enforces the state’s Multiple Dwelling Law and the City’s Housing Maintenance Code on Thursday, May 22. Adam Gawronski, a Ridgewood resident and a supervisor in HPD’s Emergency Repair Program, and Seth Donlin, HPD’s deputy director of public outreach and education, explained to the students when and how to file a complaint through the city’s 311 system, how HPD’s six-point inspection works, and what can happen if a landlord fails to make repairs in a timely manner. Shown with the students from left to right: Gawronski, P.S. 88 Principal Robert Quintana and fifth-grade teacher Ira Handell.
