LACASA’s parent organization, Strycker’s Bay is being evicted by the five unit low-income HDFC on West 87th Street. We secured renovation funds for this building (and a dozen others) and helped obtain its annual tax abatement of more than $60,000 reducing their yearly tax bill to just over $5,000 per year.
We are scrambling to represent ourselves in court since they broke their promise to allow us to remain in our space until December 31, 2010 with no rent payments. I was in Housing Court on Friday November 5th and had to deal with the HDFC’s horrible and heartless attorney. I am afraid this is going to get ugly.
