East Orange apartment tenants sweat out brutal heat without AC
(08/03/06) EAST ORANGE ? Residents in one East Orange apartment complex are sweating out this week?s brutal heat wave without the help of air conditioning.
Tenants at 275 Prospect Street say their apartments are as hot as ovens, and no relief is coming from their air conditioning units. According to one resident, inmates at a nearby jail are probably more comfortable than tenants in the building. Many tenants are also complaining about a shortage of hot water in the apartments.
One individual who owns many of the apartments refused to speak to News 12 New Jersey. Unless the air conditioning is fixed soon, many tenants will just be counting the hours until a predicted break in the heat wave occurs.
