District 36

Robert E. Cornegy, Jr.

Bedford Stuyvesant, Northern Crown Heights

This morning, I chaired the Housing and Buildings committee regarding the dangers to privacy of Fobs and new electronic house keys that have the ability to track the movements of tenants. We see these systems in residential buildings all over the City—key fobs, key pads, or even facial recognition technology—taking the place of traditional mechanical keys.

While it is exciting to see the City’s housing stock come into the 21st century, improvements to residential buildings should always be made with the tenant in mind.
