“As a result of your reporting regarding Gateway’s extensive heat problems in their complex…specifically the 311 lawsuit, we managed to do what could not be done since their original settlement of their Federal lawsuit in the 1980’s, provide heat to their tenants. Your detailing the lawsuit which resulted in their being fined, the class action lawsuit utilized that information to go forward in their pursuit of both repairs, compensation and punishment for Gateways egregious conduct. Of course, we know, that all the heaters in 1700 apartments were suddenly repaired just after your reporting of that lawsuit. In my particular instance, the very first day you published something on my action, Gateway was a concerned mess. You have been a valuable addition to the community and to those who seek justice. May you continue your good works.” Betty Kay, Gateway Plaza resident
