Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA
I have been helping at P.A.L.A.N.T.E. Harlem for the last 5 weeks. Elsie and her team are doing a outstanding job in helping Tenants to fight against Landlord injustice (Slum Lords). Their dedication is remarkable! I have witnessed situations which I would have believed exited if not having seen them myself:
1. Senior Citizens being taking out of there Rent Stabilized apartments and being put in smaller apartments with their belongings put in black garbage bags.
2. Senior Citizen laving with no water, no bathroom, and Kitchen for 3 weeks. Being forced to stay in a small bedroom while the Landlord did improvements to the apartment, with the intention of making this person move into another smaller apartment . This elderly women is 91 years old !!
3. I have seen building with major violations;
A. Rusted Staircases painted over.
B. Major water leaks in apartments and in the hallways.
C. Building Roofs ready to sink in , due to no up keep.
D. Bullying Seniors and others into leaving there apartments .
P.A.L.A.N.T.E. stands up to these Landlords and is fighting a tuff battle for Tenants Rights and quality life .
