From the Daily News:
A day-care center is refusing to leave the Klein Farm, a 2-acre property on 73rd Ave., despite an eviction notice from the landlord, Audrey Realty, owned by Tommy Huang.
Li Chen, owner of Apple Tree Day Care, refused to vacate the Klein Farm by her June 30 eviction date. The case went to Civil Court on Thursday but a final decision was adjourned to Sept. 10.
Chen's two-year lease, which began in March 2008, states the only reason she can be kicked out before the lease ends is if the property is sold, said her attorney, Yi Lin.
"So far, [Huang] has failed to present a copy of the contract of sale," Lin said.
Huang's company would only tell Chen that a synagogue purchased the property for $5.6 million, Lin said.
The synagogue is said to be looking to build a community center on the land. The Queens County Farm Museum has previously expressed interest in establishing an annex there.
City records indicate Audrey Realty is the current property owner. Craig Zim, a lawyer for Audrey Realty, declined to provide details on the case or the status of the property.
