Inside Nasir Qureshi's unit the stove is cold, the refrigerator is warm and his holiday spirit is quite dim.
“And you know how much the maintenance (is) for each apartment?” he asked. It’s $450 per month, he said.
An emergency notice is posted on Qureshi's door, and everybody else's, saying it will be 15 days before power is restored. The letter from the management company says special parts are needed to fix the power problem, but those parts won’t be available until after the new year.
“We are not living in a far-out some place – we are living in a big city. Call some engineers,” Qureshi said.
