Six months ago, Mayor de Blasio took office promising big changes for public housing, but that means little to Blanche Moore, who still has to deal with sickening black mold in her bathroom. “It’s the same,” said Moore, 61, a retired home health aide, who lives in the DeWitt Clinton Houses in East Harlem. “I don’t have a problem talking to them or anything. I just can’t get anybody to come and do the work.” Moore is one of 17 tenants who sued NYCHA in June on behalf of DeWitt Clinton’s 1,700 residents, demanding that the authority address dozens of repairs that date back years.
