Faceless Building's Tenants Scrambling

New, 3 comments

What happened to the tenants of that West 14th Street building that got its facade lopped off a couple weeks back? NYC The Blog reports they've been in and out of shelters and are now going after their landlord, Stanley Wasserman: "So far the tenants have received a rent reduction from the city applied to their apartments, they currently only have to pay one dollar a month for a place they can’t live in, preventing Mr. Wasserman from evicting them for not paying rent. A few of the tenants who have brought the lawsuit against Mr. Wasserman have been offered housing in another SRO building down the street (Mr. Wasserman owns three SRO buildings on 14th Street) after having preliminary hearings in front of the judge, who recommended that Wasserman find the tenants housing."
