The notorious Brooklyn landlord who owns the Greenpoint Terminal Market that burned down under mysterious circumstances last year continues to push new development projects even while facing millions of dollars in fines related to his scandal-scarred past, a Post investigation has found.
'FINE' & DANDY
Joshua Guttman and his family owe the city at least $59,000 in unpaid Department of Buildings fines - much dating back over a decade - and more than $52,000 in outstanding property taxes, a review of city records shows.
His company also faces $4.7 million in fines stemming from misdemeanor charges of failing to maintain piers and bulkheads on the western edge of his 21-acre warehouse complex on the Greenpoint waterfront. Guttman is expected back in a Brooklyn courtroom Thursday on those charges.
A Post visual inspection of the charred complex's piers by boat yesterday showed no apparent repairs 2½ years after the violation.
