In the older buildings that provide more than three-quarters of the city’s one million rent-regulated apartments, whose owners are barred by law from raising rents, taxes are also due to rise. The average tax on these buildings will rise 8.5%, including an 11.3% increase for Brooklyn landlords, a Wall Street Journal analysis found.

"As the team's favorite local bodegas closed, there was no quick place in the area to get breakfast, he says. Horowitz started to experiment. "We're trying to do something that's almost like — I hate to say this — elevated bodega food," he says."

You know what I miss most about local bodegas? The knew when to shut up and make the sandwich and I never had to hear about the process.

So happy Kossar's is back open...and I will be first in line for Harry & Ida's sandwiches. Everything they do is excellent.
