Here's an important plank in the James campaign that addresses some of the abuses by SoHo landlords and developers seeking to gut rent-control and rent-stabilization. 

This is how the real affordable housing crisis is unfolding. In cases that are not well known, the real estate industry and abusive landlords have been litigating Seniors out of older SoHo lofts and out of their apartments in order to push development. HPD has done nothing but support these illegal efforts and the Courts are willing co-conspirators.: 


For those of us in SoHo who wish to support the Tish James campaign for Attorney General, here's some good news:

Dear Friends, 

What a month. Trump's cronies are dropping like flies.  

As the next Attorney General of New York State, I want to send a strong and clear message to Washington that no one is above the law - not even the President. 


An important new announcement for SoHo residents —

WHEN: Wednesday, August 8.  Doors open at 4:00 pm for refreshments and the meeting starts at 4:30.


News from A.G.: Barbara D. Underwood: 


Residents and Businesses Beware!

From The SoHo Alliance comes this warning.:

Several years ago the SoHo Alliance warned of a wheelchair-bound man whose lawyer would approach SoHo shops lacking handicap accessible ramps and threaten to sue for millions in alleged emotional damage under the Americans with Disabilities Act unless the store settled for tens of thousands of dollars.  

High-minded crusade or shakedown racket?
