321 Harman (Bushwick, Brooklyn)

In November 2020, the landlord of 321 Harman cut off the tenants’ heat, hot water and gas just before Thanksgiving to illegally force out our clients. Communities Resist mounted a public pressure campaign and litigation. Within an hour, city inspectors went to the building and conducted all necessary repairs to safely restore services, despite the landlord’s total neglect. Our clients were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with heat, gas, and hot water, and we are now suing the landlord for harassment, repairs and discrimination.
