New York City's biggest landlord -- the agency that oversees the city's entire public housing stock -- said it has a backlog of 420,000 repair requests. And, Thursday Housing Authority officials said they are finally going to do something about it.

NYCHA Chairman John Rhea says under a new plan NYCHA will eliminate the entire backlog of essential repairs by year's end, while also reducing the average wait time by a week.
