Relatives of Harlem fire victims plan to sue city for billions

The notices of claim say the city and the New York City Housing Authority “failed to comply with proper designs and safety standards” and allowed “hazardous and unsafe conditions” at the building.

Under the city’s settlement with the federal government, it would funnel $2.2 billion to NYCHA over 10 years to fix rampant problems.

A spokesman for the city Law Department called the fatal fire “a tragic incident.

“The city will review the notice of claim,” he said.
