Infested By Bed Bugs
The Sandcastle, formerly known as Roy Reuther apartments in Far Rockaway, is being touted as a new standard in "luxury" ocean front living.
However, the building itself is not new, rather, the new owners are marketing it as such.
The real problem is that much of the building (including my 84 year old grandmother's apartment) is infested with bed bugs.
Wealthy developers should not forget that existing tenants, not simply the young hip individuals they hope to attract, deserve a clean, habitable place in which to live.
