NYCHA Elevator Boss Quits After Rough Year


We mentioned earlier that housing authority chairman Tino Hernandez resigned last month, partly because of a controversy over bad elevators in public housing. Now the Times tells us Charles Miraglia, the housing official in charge of elevator oversight, is resigning as well. The death of 5-year old Jacob Neuman in August started a shitstorm about lousy elevator maintenance in the projects that may have contributed to Miraglia’s decision. Miraglia had done outside work for elevator companies, but this had been cleared by the Conflicts of Interest board; he was making $104,000 a year at NYCHA.
