Slow to non-existent elevator service for residents in New York City public housing continues to be a daunting problem, according to a new report by City Limits.

Unsurprisingly, the story cites several NYCHA complexes The Herald has reported on over the years, including Mitchel,  Patterson and Mott Haven Houses, where disabled and elderly residents say they wait so long for service that they often opt to make their way up flights of stairs instead of taking their chances waiting for elevators to arrive.

Despite the issues so many residents report, NYCHA says reported incidents of balky elevators are down 12 percent.
