“We’re thrilled an agreement has been reached between the Chelsea Hotel Tenants’ Association and its landlord to safely remove dangerous conditions from the building. For too long, this symbol of the West Side has been in a state of disrepair, endangering the health of all those who live inside. We rallied and demanded a plan of action for asbestos and mold abatement and now, we finally have it. Today is a new day for the residents at Chelsea Hotel, whose call for action has been heard at last. We’re going to watch this landlord like hawks to make sure the letter of this agreement is followed.”
