Crown Heights Tenants Rally for Affordable Housing

Tenants from 230 and 232 Schenectady Avenue rallied last month against Sanford Solny, a Borough Park based broker who is working with slumlord Bernard Neiderman and his friends to flip their homes for profit.

Solny, Neiderman and their friends will be unsuccessful! For the past two years, tenants have been working with established non-profit housing organization, the Mutual Housing Association of New York, on a deal that will both give tenants a say in how their buildings are managed and keep their rents affordable in perpetuity.

Thanks to JFREJ, NYCC, the Crown Heights Assembly Tenant Union, Take Back the Land, and Brooklyn Legal Services for their continued support!
