NYLPI Secures Housing Accommodations for Brooklyn ClientAugust 3, 2020
The matter was handled pro bono by Stuart Parker, a former City assistant commissioner and NYLPI board member, who has been working closely with NYLPI since his retirement in 2017. Parker stated that he was pleased that the co-op recognized its obligations under the Fair Housing laws and took the action necessary to make the elevator easily usable, and he hopes the co-op’s action will serve as a model for co-op management and landlords across the City.
Living independently and having equal access to one’s home must be the rule, not the exception, for people with disabilities.
NYLPI will continue to ensure that building owners comply with the law and provide the appropriate accessibility, so that tenants no longer feel helpless in their homes.
