IOn our way to a building yesterday evening, we spotted this young man sporting this backpack. For those of you not familiar with Tahl-Propp, they are a notorious speculative developer in Harlem. We featured tenants in a Tahl-Propp building several months ago (“Tahl-Propp Tenants Speak Out”) and based on the response we received, the picture that residents of 601 W. 149th Street painted of their building seemed to resonate with Tahl-Propp tenants across the city.
I can think of quite a few things that Tahl-Propp stands for: (Raising rents, tenant harassment, bad conditions, and general money-makin’ on the the backs of the Harlem community.) “Kids” doesn’t immediately come to mind.
