Cold Christmas for Latino Families in Bronx

El Diario La Prensa, Posted: Dec 26, 2009

NEW YORK-- More than a hundred tenants in a Bronx apartment building, many of whom are Latino, have had to heat their homes by keeping the oven on or putting on the kettle, reports El Diario La Prensa. According to the news report, the tenants have not had hot water nor heating for seven months and have been staging protests against Milbank Real Estate, which is responsible for the building.

The news report also mentions that several tenants have almost caused fires by leaving on their stoves. In addition, many elder tenants and children have had to go to the hospital as a result of health issues created by heatless homes.
