The State Of Rent Controlled Apartments

New, 3 comments

It's hard not to feel a pang of envy thinking about some rent control deals people have, but as time goes by there are fewer and fewer of them. According to the Census Bureau there were 155,361 rent controlled apartments in the city back in 1987, this number shrunk to just shy of 40,000 in 2008. And if you're interested in a story of World War II vet paying $63 a-month in rent in a huge legal dispute with his landlord, well you're in luck. [NYP]
