Fighting the slumlords
Joel and Amrom Israel admitted in court that they schemed to destroy apartments, get the tenants out and then raise the rents for new renters.
I'm not sure how they destroyed the apartments and then raised the rent, but I assume they renovated the apartments after getting the tenants out.
Reminds me so much of the issue in Village West where neighbors are fighting an alleged slumlord, who is doing the same thing, but in this case, he wants to sell off the properties for high-end development.
