New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community

Habitat Magazine October 2020 free digital issue



Talk about your fish tales: A New York City co-op board is taking a shareholder to court over his running a commercial fish farm out of his home.

"The guy is breeding tilapia in his apartment," says Errol Brett, the attorney for Windsor Apartments, at 4705 Henry Hudson Parkway in Riverdale, The Bronx. "We are a pet-friendly cooperative, but I think he's going too far with these huge tanks."

... the Sheffield condominium's male prostitute is getting evicted, but not for, like, a month, and there's visiting-dog trouble at a Riverdale co-op. For co-op and condo boards, we have another case of going out of your way to make life hell for older residents, and an expert says a co-op board president can let his cousin sublet longer than other shareholders can.
