DOB's inspector stated that he observed illegal locking devices on three doors at the cellar level and two doors at the first floor. He also said that the two-family dwelling had a cellar converted into a Class "A" apartment with a kitchen area containing a toaster oven and microwave, three-piece bathroom, and sleeping quarters.
