The subject of MESH creating a WiFi network

LynNell Hancock’s Reporting class investigated life in buildings owned by the man crowned New York City's worst landlord. Students visited buildings, interviewed tenants and gathered public records. They found collapsing ceilings, illegally subdivided apartments, lead exporsure and more.
