“Harlem Tenants Vow to Fight Developer’s Expansion Plan”: DNA Info

UHAB has been working with the Harlem Tenants Aganist Tahl-Propp for two years. During this time, the tenants have had a number of victories. Joseph Tahl’s name has been smeared across numerous New York City publications, and the property developer is known in several circles as a perpetrator of “planned gentrification” in Harlem.

Two years ago HTATP prevented HPD from selling a vacant lot at East 107th Street to Tahl-Propp Equities, who planned to develop the site with housing units with rents far above the Manhattan AMI. It was a huge victory.

Unfortunately, it was as short-lived as it was sweet. The lot at East 107th Street remains undeveloped, and Joseph Tahl has submitted a bid for the lot for a second time. He is asking Manhattan Community Board 11 to give him their blessing in his quest to own all of Harlem.
