Fed up with rent-stabilized tenants, an Upper West Side landlord is taking his case to a higher power?the U.S. Supreme Court. West 76th Street brownstone owner James Harmon has petitioned the Supreme Court with the argument that he shouldn't be subsidizing tenants?three of the six rentals in his building are rent-stabilized?who are able to afford market-rate rents. One of those tenants pays $951/month in rent and owns a house on Long Island. The court has requested a response from the city by January 4. [NYDN]
