This Comment describes the practical operation of the Housing Part of the Civil Court of the City of New York, which began its operation October 1, 1973. The jurisdiction of the court as well as the remedies and penalties provided in the enabling legislation are outlined. The duties of its personnel, settlement procedures, and the influence of administrative agencies upon the operation of the Housing Part are also examined, as are several cases affecting the operation of the Housing Part. The author concludes that there have been many beneficial effects from the first year of operation of the Housing Part, but that there remains room for improvement.
