From State Senator Daniel Squadron’s office:
New York State Senator Daniel Squadron, Congress Member Jerrold Nadler, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, Assembly Member Deborah Glick, and Councilmember Margaret Chin will co-host a tenants rights forum on Thursday, bringing together housing advocates, legal experts, and community members for a discussion of how recent court decisions regarding buildings that received the J-51 or 421-g tax benefits could impact residents throughout Lower Manhattan. The panel members will discuss the recent Roberts vs. Tishman Speyer and W. Associates, LLC vs. Maverick Scott decisions and what they mean for Lower Manhattan and New York City as a whole. Elected officials will also discuss the status of housing legislation in the city and state. The panel discussion will be followed by a question-answer period during which legal experts will be available for individual consultations.
