The legal feud between the tenants and landlord of 172 North Eighth Street continues, with the tenants asking a housing court judge to appoint a new landlord for the building. (They argue their old landlord has refused to fix up the building because he wants to force out rent-stabilized residents.) The two sides can't even agree on how the building should be fixed up: the tenants think the landlord wants to dig a deeper basement to make room for a bar or restaurant. Because that's just what this situation needs! [NYT]
