For every corrupt DOB employee, there's DOB Commissioner Robert LiMandri and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, on the side of the light. By which we mean, running an undercover operation that involves combing Craigslist for illegally-converted rental apartments and dispatching DOB investigators to check out the living conditions. The DOB team found illegal features in 54 of the 62 apartments they've inspected across the boroughs since May, the DOB and mayor's office said when they announced the undercover activities today, which means Mayor Bloomberg's Craigslist sifting skills are way better than ours. The DOB sting operations are dramatized in the above video from the mayor's office, which makes for entertaining viewing even if it's missing the mayor himself.
