They should have been tear gassed out years ago. These people have stolen from
all of us. While the rest of us pay through our noses, they get off scott free...

On top of it all, the city gives them a 40 year break from having to pay taxes ...this is nothing short of legalized theft. Gee, I wonder why taxes are so absurd in NY State and City ?

DISGUSTING - these people are no different than Bernie Madoff - they are stealing that which is not theirs and why would you even print it. They should hang their heads in shame for stealing.

THERE IS JUST NO REAL JUSTICE IN AMERICA TODAY. I,M SURE IF ANYONE I KNOW WAS TO TRY SQUATTING IN AN ABANDON BUILDING THEY'D BE RUN OFF OUT OF THERE IN A MATTER OF DAYS. IF THE BUILDING WAS IN SUCH DIRE STRAIGHTS, WHY DIDN'T THE CITY DO IT'S JOB BACK IN THE 80'S AND RUN THEM OFF, CONDEMN AND TEAR DOWN THE BUILDING THEN? OH, I REMEMBER NOW, WE WERE IN YET ANOTHER FINANCIAL CRISIS THEN, TOO. GREENWICH VILLAGE, THIS IS PRIME REAL ESTATE, HOW NICE FOR THESE BUMS; AND YES THE LAW BIDING TAX PAYING MIDDLE CLASS PERSON GETS SCREWED YET AGAIN.
