The Sledgehammer

New, 1 comment

The Times has a profile of our old buddy Ben Shaoul, chronicling his long history of violations and frequently alleged mistreatment of rent-stabilized tenants. The article includes a couple quotes from EV Grieve and credits Curbed with coining the nickname "Sledgehammer" Shaoul. It also includes a few choice quotes from The Hammer himself, including one in the beginning where he claims to not understand why people hate him and then, later, when he asks, seemingly without a hint of irony: "Why is everyone so hung up on the East Village?” It's worth a read.
