John Watson and his family live in the Coney Island Housing Projects on the ground floor. After throwing out their soaked lives, they were left to endure living in a mouldy apartment for over two months before NYCHA finally moved them into hotels to make repairs.
After two and a half more months, NYCHA are moving John and his family back into their original apartment, although John says that he's been back to see the place and no repairs or mould remediation has been done in that time.
