Landlord Can't Evict Without Offering New Apartment

New York Law Journal
Friday, August 27, 1999

A NOT-FOR-PROFIT company that is redeveloping city housing
cannot evict present tenants without offering an equivalent alternate
dwelling, a Manhattan Housing Court judge has ruled in a case of
first impression interpreting a key section of redevelopment law.

Judge Doris Ling-Cohan ruled that 15 tenants residing at 515 W.
174th Street in Washington Heights could not be forced to move
immediately so that Quisqueya Housing Corp. could get on with
rehabilitating the property.
