From the Daily News: “Peeling paint. No heat. An overwhelming stench of sewage in the halls… Welcome to life at 152 Fourth Ave. – one of five ‘buildings from hell’ in Park Slope where a landlord is trying to drive tenants from their rent-stabilized homes, housing advocates charge…”
“Organizers from the Fifth Avenue Committee charge landlord Gustav Rodriguez has refused to provide heat or make necessary repairs to the buildings as a way to harass tenants into leaving.”
DOES IT WORK? “Guerra said last year the 40 apartments in the buildings were full. Now only eight are occupied.”
LANDLORD REBUTTAL: “Rodriguez insisted Friday he has done nothing wrong: ‘Everything that the court told me to do I did.'”
Ah ha ha… a tenant’s dream: the landlord who does everything… everything that he is forced to do by a court of law!
