A trio of Brooklyn landlords were arrested yesterday for ignoring hazardous housing citations then failing to appear in court. Lewis Alleyne, Dwight King and Gerald King own the two Prospect-Lefferts Gardens apartment complexes at 241 and 247 Linden Boulevard and have managed to rack up 500 violations since the end of 2007. The civil contempt charges will be dropped if the landlords correct the problems by September 16—over/under on the likelihood of that happening? [Crain's]
