NY Senator Jeff Klein released a new report showing foreclosed properties across New York City in a similar state of disrepair as the bank-owned property that claimed three lives in a fire last Spring.

He says that several of these properties also appear to be occupied while having serious building code violations levied against them – ratcheting up the potential for additional deadly consequences.
