BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn — At the Langston Hughes Houses in Brownsville, tenants haven’t been able to use their stoves for months.  

Now, they are fighting to get their gas service back and have a powerful new ally, State Sen. Zellnor Myrie. Myrie says after getting an earful from frustrated families, it’s time for NYCHA to step up and get the gas back on.

As of Thursday afternoon, 58 buildings have gas outages across the city, according to NYCHA’s website. Some outages are entire buildings, some are certain lines.
