Several individual Manhattan buildings?1 West, 2 Gold, and the Greenwich Club Residences?have filed lawsuits in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, alleging that building management failed to deal adequately with storm damage. Now three residents in other Manhattan buildings are proposing a class-action suit on behalf of all New York tenants who paid rent when left without utilities after the hurricane, The Real Deal reports. The three plaintiffs?residents of 155 East 31st Street, 145 East 16th Street (right), and 17 Stuyvesant Street?filed their suit Friday and name the owners of their own buildings, but they hope to incorporate other New Yorkers as well. They claim that damages for all members of the potential lawsuit class would add up to at least $150,000.
