Gov. Cuomo Takes Action Against Predatory Landlord

By Lisa M. Collins

All kinds of renters ’round here have faced all kinds of nastiness and unfairness from landlords. It seems an unfortunate characteristic of brownstone Brooklyn. Of course, some landlords are great. But some are terrible, preying on our fear of losing our apartments, fear of litigation we can’t afford emotionally or financially, and fear, in some cases, with criminal associations we worry the landlords may have.

So it’s interesting to read about N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo going after a landlord in Crown Heights/Flatbush who’s accused of some rotten practices.
