More than 90% of New York City schools have at least one outstanding building code violation. Loose wires, stuck doors and inadequate ventilation are just some of the problems at 1,100 school buildings with at least one open violation as of May 23.
“At the least, these violations are a distraction and a source of discomfort,” said a school cleaners’ union official. “And in many cases, they could actually present a health hazard.”
Which school had the most? Harlem's I.S. 195, with 124 violations. Nearly 60 schools had more than two dozen violations.
