    buildings that participated in these programs with a tax benefit to keep their costs down and maintain affordability At nearly four decades old the Task Force sees no signs of slowing down The coalition has grown to include members of UHAB s Shareholders Forums legal service groups and attorneys It continues to fight for the future of what it helped build As Andy Reicher put it We want to see the existing 30 000 units of HDFC co ops preserved among the 200 000 units of affordable housing that Mayor De Blasio has proposed so that we can help secure better lives for another generation UHAB is an active member of the Task Force alongside other affordable housing advocates including Urban Justice Center Brooklyn Law School Corporate Real Estate Clinic Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development ANHD Goldstein Hall PLLC Housing Conservatio Coordinators St Nicholas Neighborhood Preservation Corporation Legal Aid Society Community Law Office and Brookyn Legal Services Corp A UHAB FLASHBACK Helping Themselves to a Future 132 West 169th Street Bronx Some three decades ago so few tenants remained in 132 West 169th Street that they could not even afford to pay the oil bill There were icicles in the first floor apartments as big as 100 year old trees one shareholder recalled However residents of this 24 apartment Bronx building ignored the hallway notices directing them to vacate their deteriorated rental and relocate Instead they chose to stand their ground and with UHAB s help began the long arduous process of saving their homes When I say we suffered in this building we suffered said another resident We were in the building two years and we didn t have hot water or lights We used to burn candles on those flights of stairs out there at night to come into the building And we used to go across there to the water hydrant to get water to bring in In 1983 the building entered the city s Tenant Interim Lease TIL program to prepare to convert to an affordable co op After four years of saving residents finally purchased the building in 1988 when it became an HDFC co op Through a great deal of hard work and sacrifice residents made sure that their building was renovated and well maintained and managed Today it is fully occupied Co op means working together explained HDFC board treasurer Bernice Walker Co op means everyone puts in their two cents and I think that this is what has gotten us this far Though we fight and argue and disagree There was always a core of people to keep things going who wanted to maintain the building if they could added board president Howard Brown We had so many things that happened to us that brought us eventually together and kept us together These residents went through hardship but they found a way to help themselves to a better future Heating Season Check It Out Heating season October 1 st to May 31 st is upon us the time when maintenance costs can become a real burden on HDFC co ops Most of us know some of the things we can do to keep our buildings fuel costs down during the fall and winter Turn thermostats down to 68 degrees health permitting wear wool socks and plenty of layers drink hot beverages use blankets and small space heaters put hot water bottles in beds and use the oven to cook instead of the stove so it warms the house at the same time But there are other things you can do both in your individual apartments and as a building community Remember if everyone reduces the amount of heat they use it helps keep everyone s maintenance costs low So be conscientious Here is a heating season checklist that many HDFCs have found useful 1 Check your boiler Before the real cold sets in have your heating system inspected and if necessary tuned up Is your boiler operating at its best A dirty burner or a cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation making the equipment operate less safely and efficiently Fixing these problems up front could save you hundreds of dollars 2 Maintain your building s heat Make sure it is being distributed evenly Talk to fellow shareholders Are some apartments so hot that people are keeping their windows open while others have shareholders wearing coats indoors If so have your heating system evaluated as soon as possible by calling your boiler company and requesting a boiler tube cleaning or a Combustion Efficiency Test 3 Caulk the cracks Have your building invest in a caulking gun This way residents will easily be able to seal any cracks and crevices such as around door and window frames and entry holes for telephone and cable wires that are letting the cold weather inside 4 Cover your windows Locking your windows may not be enough to ensure that cold air doesn t invade your apartment Thick window curtains and drapes can help keep the cold out and the heat in In a pinch cover your windows with inexpensive fleece fabric blankets flannel sheets or even clear plastic 5 Don t forget those doors Warm air is always lost under doors So installing a door sweep or a draft stopper bought inexpensively at any hardware store can help keep your apartment warm You could even add a curtain over the door 6 Maintain your radiators Make sure that you do not have furniture blocking your radiators and absorbing the heat meant for the rest of the room Keep your radiators free of dust since any amount of dirt on top of them will absorb some of their heat One trick to prevent heat loss is to use heat reflective aluminum foil behind the radiator to direct heat back into the room 7 Cover bare floorboards You can lose as much as 10 of your apartment s heat through your bare floorboards especially when there are
