Landlords in New York State banning smoking in their apartment buildings in increasing numbers

There was an article in the New York Times on 11/16/09 which describes the efforts in New York City of some landlords to ban smoking in their apartments.

You can access the article by clicking here.

When GCASA had the Smoke Free NOW program, before the grant was cut, the Smoke Free NOW coalition had a campaign to ask landlords in Orleans, Genesee, and Wyoming counties to ban smoking in their apartment buildings. Quite a few agreed and signed on.

The damage done to apartment walls, ceilings, fixtures, drapes, rugs, etc from nicotine and tar staining is signficant over time. The second hand smoke seeping from one apartment unit to another has been shown to be a hazard to other tenants not just the occupants of the apartment with the smoker.
