With curving streets and well-tended lawns and gardens, the Princeton Park complex on the Far South Side seems like the perfect place to raise a family – until you look inside the townhomes, where repeated flooding has caused mold and decay and lead chips fall from windows and door frames.

Princeton Park tenants are organizing and have taken the landlord to court, alleging among other things that he charges tenants for routine repairs, in violation of the Chicago Landlord Tenant Ordinance.  Metropolitan Tenants Organization tells their story in a new article at Progress Illinois.
