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.

first poster, are you the bag boy or the DOB employee who got paid off to do this? if these were illegal immigrants not only would it be all over the news, there would be Red Cross and Salvation Army trucks out there to assist the tenants. where are their city council members?
maybe because they are white tenants that nothing is being done for them.

Auntie, why should anything be done for them? They're renting illegal apartments.

+1 for anon 1. Why do these hipster douches think it's ok to live 16 in an apartment just because they have a lease?

Auntie Invasion, no I'm not smart ass. I had "friends" that lived in these fire traps. I was appalled at this living situation. They thought it was cool, like living in a commune. So what they have a lease. Its an illegal apartment and a fucking fire trap. Again, if it all goes up in fucking flames, they would blame the city. Hope these hipsters go back to fucking Iowa.

Herman- the so called property manager seen in video with hoodie-has been thrown out for running illegal hotels at 269 meserole and 36 underhill st in brooklyn. oh, and pacific street. If you get block and lot of 97+99 Stockton and go to ACRIS you will find the HE owns these properties. He is the little weasel running hostel 89(Used to rent short term for 87-99 stockton) putting profit before lives.
