: lives in another. There are four long time rent stabilized tenants

: in four units. The other two are used as bed and breakfasts.

: The landlord advertises and has people coming and going. In one month,

: I counted nearly 20 different people - these were the ones I saw (I work

: the bed and breakfast across the hall from me. Currently, the landlord is

: harassing two tenants and trying to get them to leave. His plan appears

: to be to convert our apartments to bed and breakfasts also. I think they need various permits to run a hotel... health, fire, special taxes, etc. Do the research on the net or contact the public advocate office to see the requirements. You could probably get the B&B closed down. The units would still be stabilized. Get a "guest" in there for 30 days and have them demand a lease.
