More than a hundred tenants in a Bronx apartment building, many of whom are Latino, have had to heat their homes by keeping the oven on or putting on the kettle.

According to tenants of the 2427 Webster Avenue building, they have not had hot water nor heating for seven months and have been staging protests against Milbank Real Estate, which is responsible for the building.

In attempt to stay warm in the freezing weather, several tenants have almost caused fires by leaving on their stoves. In addition, many elder tenants and children have had to go to the hospital as a result of health issues created by heatless homes.

Maria Milosheva

Maria was born, raised and currently lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, EU. She is a journalist by profession and practices psychological consultation for the past few years. Maria worked as a reporter/journalist for a number of newspapers and radio stations. She served as a chief-editor of the National Library's monthly magazine Librarian for a number of years. Maria started drawing in 1991, urged by a strong inner need to recreate the reality beyond the usual – the world of forms and details… She has taken part in various exhibitions and her work is in a number of private collections around the world. It can be seen at MarmiArt.com. Maria's drawings are created using mixed techniques – aquarelle, tempera, ink, pencils, etc. They are unique and have no names. Their eventual owners would give them names, effectively becoming a part of the process of creating them. Every one can charge their own drawing with one's own energy and identify it with one's self. The drawings will repay generously, predisposing for calm moments of reflection and meditation.
