The Hill – where leaks, roaches and rats take months to abate
If you start at the Bayview District’s Third Street and follow the gentle slope up Newcomb Avenue, you’ll wind up on what residents colloquially call “The Hill.”
Up on The Hill are four subsidized, garden-style apartment complexes comprising some 600 units. In them live families, seniors, and kids who light fireworks and draw with chalk on the sidewalk. There are also dozens of long-term tenants who view their homes as battlegrounds where they fight off rats, gnats, and mold.
