Lobbia: 18th Street landlord Steve Croman

first paragraph:

Steve Croman Has Turned Downtown Tenements Upscale, but Not
Everyone Is Cheering. On 18th Street, a New Crop of Croman
Tenants Is Worried That They’re Next.


hen the Voice last visited Steve Croman, the thirtysomething landlord
was busy haranguing longtime Little Italy tenants out of their apartments
and replacing them with high-paying, quick-turnover renters. Croman's
tactics, including badgering phone calls, endless lawsuits, and leaning on
already hard-pressed tenants, like a Chinese immigrant who had earned
her rent deposit by collecting cans, won him a spot on the Voice's 1998 10
Worst Landlords list. Now Croman has turned his eye uptown to a string of
five-story walk-ups on 18th Street near First Avenue that he bought last
year. But there the landlord is finding that he must temper his tactics
because, unlike with his exploits on Mott and Mulberry streets, the 18th
Street tenants are organized and ready for him.
