“There are few things more despicable than placing tenants at risk in order to make a buck. Allegations that Kushner Cos. filed false paperwork claiming it had zero rent stabilized tenants in its buildings are serious. If true, the company potentially removed important protections for those tenants, likely enriching itself at their expense. These allegations are particularly disturbing given the city’s affordability crisis. The Council has broad oversight and legislative authority on this issue and will do everything in its power to hold those responsible accountable for these alleged falsehoods. In addition, the Council will continue to do all that it can to build and strengthen protections for rent regulated tenants. We must fight any attempts to jeopardize affordable housing for the most vulnerable New Yorkers.”
