Is management responsible for damage to my vehicle that occurs in our parking garage? Posted on January 12, 2011

I live in a Rent Stabilized apartment in Brooklyn, NY. There is a Rider to my lease that has a provision for provided or required services, which require the landlord to maintain locks and security devices and other amenities building-wide. The lock on the door leading from the lobby to the garage had been broken some time, and the superintendent was aware of this. Someone gained entry into the garage and vandalized my vehicle and others. The Super called the police and informed Management. The Super subsequently replaced the lock and gave me a new key. Question: Is Management liable for damage to my vehicle?
