Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pas the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know.
This week's open thread topic is inspired by a reader, who writes in with a complaint about the rent increase on her Manhattan apartment. The reader asks that we open up the floor for a discussion of landlords and the things they do that make tenants unhappy?and, well, why not? So, Curbed readers, do you have a landlord horror story? Tell us about outrageous rent increases, broken heating that went unfixed, un-addressed violations, and any other landlord-related tales you care to share in the comments. Positive landlord stories are welcome, too, of course?they just won't be as cathartic for our tipster.
