HUD Assistant Secretary Cabrera at Whitman/Ingersoll Houses
Newly appointed HUD Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing, Orlando J. Cabrera, recently made his first visit to NYCHA. Following meetings with the Board at 250 Broadway he visited Ingersoll Houses with NYCHA senior staff to view apartments slated to be renovated as part of the Whitman/Ingersoll Comprehensive Renovation. Secretary Cabrera (3rd from right) and HUD Director of Public Housing, New York Region, Mirza Negron Morales (right, foreground) joined NYCHA General Manager Douglas Apple and senior staff to view both a "model" renovated apartment and an un-renovated apartment. The tour highlighted the need for modernization and the reconfiguration of many apartments at the developments as well as upgrading of building systems and elevators.
