It seems like everyone’s trashing the Housing Authority these days, and state Attorney General-elect Letitia James is no exception. James, who will be public advocate for another few weeks, has placed NYCHA at the top of her annual “Landlord Watchlist.”

“The conditions of NYCHA buildings are among the worst in the city, and the response from management has been inadequate,” said James in a statement. This is the first year that the list, which usually includes only private landlords, has included NYCHA, according to Curbed.

NYCHA reportedly has 240,120 unresolved work orders within a roster of 174,488 apartments. Three Brooklyn developments – Red Hook East, Red Hook West and Albany Houses, are among the developments with the largest number of outstanding work orders, Curbed said.
