24 St. Mark's Place sells for $12.9 million



There's a new owner for 24 St. Mark's Place, a 17-unit, 6-floor walk-up with Ben & Jerry's in the retail space here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

The transaction hit public records last week with an LLC linked to a Greene Street address as the seller, and an LLC in Great Neck as the buyer. The purchase price was $12.9 million.

The Traded: New York Instagram account posted that Laurence Beame sold the property to Danny Hakakian.

A Bahram (Danny) Hakakian of Great Neck was once on City Councilmember Bill de Blasio's "Slumlord Watch List," according to the Daily News in 2009.

In 2011, The Real Deal's analysis of city records found that "there were 3,020 housing code violations on the 334 units" in the 17 buildings that Hakakian reportedly owned. (He had just sold many of the properties.) That figure came out to about nine violations per unit.

Since then, however, Hakakian has not appeared on any lists, such as the 2017 Worst Landlords Watchlist via Public Advocate Letitia James.

The building was last sold for $5.3 million in January 2012, per public records.

Just what we need in the EV another criminal landlord. I guess when it rains it's crooks that come pouring down.
