Elected Officials Call on NYCHA to Repair Heating Plant at Woodside Houses

Oct. 5. 2022 By Christian Murray

Several elected officials held a press conference at Woodside Houses Wednesday morning to call on NYCHA to fix the complex’s broken heating system that has left many residents without reliable heat and hot water for more than a year.

Council Member Julie Won, State Senators Michael Gianaris and Jessica Ramos, as well as Assemblymember Jessica González-Rojas held the press conference to call on NYCHA to make good on its promise to repair the heating plant.

The elected officials had been promised back in January that the plant would be repaired by April. They visited the complex at the time due to repeated outages.

NYC Test Scores Drop in Math, Increase in Reading

Nearly half of New York City’s third through eighth graders passed their state reading tests last school year, while about 38% passed math, according to scores released by city officials Wednesday.

The scores are the first measure of how students across the five boroughs have fared in reading and math since the coronavirus pandemic upended in-person schooling and left many children grappling with isolation and grief. Though schools gave students other city-mandated assessments last year, officials have refused to publicly release the results.
