The housing authority — with more than 400,000 tenants, the city’s largest landlord — declined to comment, saying it did not discuss pending litigation.

More than 300 tenants at the Smith Houses who are suing the authority listed numerous repairs needed in their complex of 12 buildings, including leaks, flooding, mold, warped floors, holes in walls, and broken stoves, toilets, doors, windows, buzzers and mailboxes, writes The New York Times.
