Robin PughFollowing are pics of 232 Bidwell Avenue Apt 2. I was refered to this apartment by Hudson CountyDepartment of Social Services on 4/12/10. The landlord advised that the apartment had only minimalwork left to be done and that it was pretty much ready to be rented. The walls of the apartment werefreshly painted and the kitchen cabinets appeared to have been new and recently installed. Based onother conditions in the building I wouldnt normally have decided to live here. However, rather thanface a long term homeless situation due to having been stripped of my job (see 09-2680-cv) and basedon the landlords statement on apartment readiness, I agreed to take the apartment on 4/16/10. I gotthe keys on 4/17 and moved in my belongings on 4/18/10. I started staying there on 4/19. There wereno utility services in the apartment until 4/26/10 and Social Services was well aware of this.Beyond the fact that the fixture was hanging out with exposed wires, I just recently discovered that thelighting in the bathroom was not up to code when I moved in because there is no wall switch to controlthe fixture over the bathroom mirror (a few pics down)  even though the fixture itself was replaced. Atthe end of the day, this apartment should have been inspected to meet what is called HQS  HousingQuality Standard per HUD as
safe, decent and sanitary
prior to Hudson County Social Servicesreferring it to anybody. Oddly enough, the apartment was inspected in May 2010 and passed despitethe conditions shown below and the bathroom code violation.These pics were taken between 4/21/10 and 7/23/10. They speak for themselves.Floor behind kitchen stove
