Landlord Sam Suzuki, who was jailed for failure to make repairs at a Bronx building, is out of the slammer. Time for Suzuki to prepare his legal strategy! Which apparently involves claiming that he no longer owns the 1585 East 172nd Street building. So who does? Suzuki can't reveal that, says his attorney, "because of Japanese cultural business practice; if he revealed them his life would be in danger." [Crain's]
