From November 2013 until January 2016, the NYC Housing, Preservation and Development agency, which is responsible for oversight of the city’s vast stock of multi-unit residential buildings, issued more than 10,000 violations for dangerous lead paint conditions in units with children under the age of six, the age group most at risk of ingesting lead paint. Read the story here and use the search below to find buildings cited for unsafe lead conditions. Visit New York City's guide to reporting unsafe conditions if you're concerned about lead paint in your home.
The Huffington Post and WNYC compiled lead paint violations for multi-unit residential buildings across New York City using public data published by the Housing, Preservation and Development agency (HPD). The data represents instances where HPD officials sent landlords a "notice of violation" between Nov. 18, 2013, and Jan. 1, 2016, requiring them to correct a lead paint hazard. The status of violations presented on this map may have changed since it was published. The data excludes public housing, units managed by The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). The HPD is responsible for enforcing housing code in private properties, while NYCHA's environmental unit handles lead abatement in its 178,000 apartments across the city. NYCHA is currently under investigation by the U.S. attorney, who is demanding the release of records related to dangerous lead paint conditions in public housing.
