Brooklyn has seen firsthand the tragedies that come out of illegally converted homes. In 2013, a woman was killed when a fire tore through an illegally converted home.1 And just this past year, an illegal conversion threatened a restaurant's ceiling and business in Bay Ridge.2 As we flip through our daily news, these stories are no longer surprising for our city boroughs - their chilling effects, however, emphasize a critical problem that MUST be addressed. Together, let's push for a safer Brooklyn.
