I am a resident in Fort Greene, a beautiful historic landmark area.  However, there is an abandoned building next to mine.  This abandoned building has received numerous building and health violations.  It has became the safe house to many rodents and birds.  It's so gross.  On the other hand, the owner keep paying the real estate tax.  Therefore, the city takes NO action against the owner. 


Can anyone tell me how we normal citizens live on the same block get help from the city?
