'Out of Shaoul’s frying pan and into Kushner’s fire?' Super Tenants Association meeting planned

From the EV Grieve inbox...

Out of Shaoul’s Frying Pan and into Kushner’s Fire?

Are you or do you know someone who lives in one of the buildings that Ben Shaoul just sold to Jared Kushner? The tenants association of 118/120 East 4th Street is looking to get together with other tenants in the same parcel of buildings for a Super Tenants Association Meeting. The idea is to get together, talk about our past experiences, what we may have to look out for in the future and how to establish a network for support and information sharing.

Please email the organizers here

Previously on EV Grieve:
Report: Jared Kushner paid $49 million for 7 more Ben Shaoul-owned properties in the East Village

Ben Shaoul and company put East Fourth Street buildings on the market for $25 million

4 East Fourth Street apartment buildings hit market for $32 million

Rumors: Is Ben Shaoul selling his East Village properties?

Separate buildings but same landlord. This is a really smart idea, like what tenants did in Stuy Town and Peter Cooper Village.

Get an attorney!!! Get tenants to join and sign some kind of pledge to demonstrate that the tenants association represents the tenants.

This could be happening all over the EV as landlords consolidate. There is strength in unity and larger (well run!) multi-building tenants groups will have much more political clout than individual buildings.

Good luck!

Yay! Now to figure out how to get the students living in 70% of these apartments to care.
