Kicked to the curb on Thanksgiving Eve
From NBC New York:
Occupants of five residential buildings in Brooklyn are temporarily homeless after Mayor Bloomberg's Office of Special Enforcement slapped a vacate order on the structures just 24 hours before Thanksgiving.
The city said the owners of 89, 91, 95, 97 and 99 Stockton Street in the Clinton Hill neighborhood have been operating an illegal hotel without proper fire protections.
Not only that, they all seem to have SROs in their cellars, so it's not that they simply have short-term leases. It's hipster heaven.
