landlord removed locks from front doors!

Posted by kristin on September 08, 2000 at 12:00:40:

i'm currently involved in a rent overcharge complaint with my landlord. that's still pending. he's tried to evict us and when that didn't work and the court wouldn't call off our rent strike he's been trying to get us out by either blasting us with music from the bar downstairs, or by letting the place fall apart. a week ago the lock on our inner front door broke. instead of fixing it, he removed the lock. two days ago, he took the good outer front door and switched the left door for right and right for left, leaving that lock unable to work. then her removed the inner front door. last night we only had the outer door and it kept swinging open. not only did it not lock, it didn't even shut! is this illegal? i asked a cop and she didn't know. what can i do? i'm in manhattan.
