Welcome to Lefferts!

I'm moving to Prospect Lefferts Gardens! Tell me what's cool! Tell me what sucks! Tell me anything I should know! I'll also be a new Brooklynite after living in Manhattan for twelve years, so more generalized info could be nice, too.

Gross sticky nasty gunk everywhere

I live in a pre-war (1920's?) Brooklyn apartment building. Recently, the ceiling in the kitchen collapsed due to a leak in the pipes above, spreading plaster, dust, and wet and dry gunk everywhere. Now the landlord has completed a shoddy-looking repair, again leaving everything in the kitchen covered in dust and powder and sticky gunk. Every. Single. Thing. Two questions: how do I find out if we are in danger of asbestos exposure? How do I proceed if we are?

Help With Apartment Hunting in Greenpoint, Brooklyn
