More than 18,000 Queens NYCHA residents faced unplanned heat and hot water outages during last year’s “heating season,” according to data reported by the agency. The outages reflect a citywide trend that has left tens of thousands of public housing tenants without functioning heat in the coldest months of the year, a period when landlords are required to provide heating under city law.
