In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the Greenwich Club Residences, located at 88 Greenwich Street in the Financial District, has been slapped with a lawsuit from a tenant. The Post reports that the tenant charges the condo board and building management, Cooper Square Realty, with "fraud, self-dealing, and gross negligence" regarding how the building dealt with damages inflicted by the storm. We believe this is the first post-Sandy tenant lawsuit filed in Manhattan.
The Post says the court papers contend that "the board has been twiddling its thumbs while residents are trying to find other places to live because the building won't reopen for several months." The Greenwich Club has 452 units, and at the beginning of November, management informed residents that the building would be uninhabitable for at least four months.
