Large difference in scores

According to data published by, the most recent inspection for J.W. JOHNSON was October 1, 2018, in which it received a failing score.

This score was 41.5 points worse than the average for New York (76.5).

The difference between this property’s lowest and highest inspection score from 2013 to 2019 is more than 20 points, which experts say raises questions about the reliability of the inspections.

Inspection Score

What does a failed inspection mean?

HUD scores properties on a 100-point scale, and 60 points are needed to pass. Congress mandates that federally subsidized housing conditions are “decent, safe and sanitary” and in good repair. Inspectors can deduct points for such problems as mold, infestation, broken doors and windows, tripping hazards and graffiti.

Note: This database contains all inspection reports made available to the public by HUD from 2013 to March 2019. If a property is inspected multiple times within a short time period, it is possible that HUD has not publicly released all of those inspection scores. Data for multifamily complexes only includes facilities with an active HUD contract. This demographic data comes from HUD’s website, but it was submitted by local housing authorities and property owners, and may not reflect the most current demographic makeup.
