Thanks! Although the management company was somewhat
cooperative, the landlord still doesn't want to pay a plumber! I have
searched the site, and called a few numbers (I did report to the central
complaint line), but what is the first step to present this to a judge?
It's looking like a judge will be the only route. If I were to take a
day off work this week, what would be the best way to do this.

No, I have not sent any rent.

: Did you call the complaint number 212 960 4800 and report it ???
: Did you call the Health Dept ?? Toilets can't be flushed without water. You can't wash your body or brush teeth without water.
: Don't pay a dime in rent to anyone !!! No Judge in the world will make you pay rent on an apt that is uninhabitable . Send landlord/mgt a certified letter and advise them that you will not pay a dime in rent for any days without water and you will hold the rent until a Judge tells you to pay rent and how much to pay.
: The Judge will order a rent reduction. Remember, do not pay a dime in rent to anyone except a Judge.
