: Is there any recourse for correcting an over-efficient radiator? I live in a rent-stablized building of 98 units and, with the beginning of cold weather, experience persistent temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s, even with the valve completely shut off. The only advice or regulations I've been able to find regard tentants' lack of heat, not being steam cooked.

No law about how hot is too hot.
There is a basic law: if it's broken, they must fix it.
An elderly woman died in Brooklkyn a couple of summers ago due to heat from radiator...

Do the usual: call, write a polite letter with deadline, write a stronger letter, call in a complaint to HPD. For hints, read complaint pages.
