Curiosity: Has anyone read the article "Rent To Die For? Downtown Landlord Admits Murder Plot", written by J.A. Lobbia, Village Voice, January 19,1999, page 23?
It begins (quote)
Being a tenant in New York City can almost be murder.
That's what two Lower East Eide residents learned last week when their landlord...admitted in criminal court that he hired a hit man to kill them in hopes of getting higher rents.
Addendum: An attorney, representing a landlord, was recently overheard in a NYC court hallway addressing a tenant with the assurance:
"Nobody's going to die as an result of this."
So, it would appear that shelter in the City of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse has all boiled down to this.
Slandering a landlord? Peanuts, in comparrison to death threats. Wouldn't we agree?
