The Post has been all over the story of Avraham Adler, who allegedly hosted advertised sex parties at the tony townhouse he's renting at 189 E. Seventh St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.
Next came the revelation from the tabloid that Adler "is leading a 'double or triple life' as an ultra-Orthodox Jew with a pregnant wife and three kids in suburban New Jersey."
And now from the Post: On Friday, U.S. Marshals and N.J. Regional Fugitive Task Force members arrested Adler, saying they were executing a Pennsylvania warrant for a probation violation stemming from a fraud conviction.
Bucks County Deputy District Attorney Marc Furber said Adler was convicted in 2017 of misdemeanor theft and receiving stolen property in the theft of numerous items from a company called Genesis Diagnostics, and received five years’ probation. This year he was convicted of access device fraud, a felony, for allegedly using the Genesis Diagnostics name “to obtain credit and make substantial purchases.” He was given another five years’ probation to run consecutively to the 2017 sentence.
In a previous Manhattan Supreme Court filing, Wonwoo Chang, the owner of 189 E. Seventh St., claimed that Adler, who signed a two-year lease here on April 1, has hosted "lewd" parties where "on premises sex took place." (Adler also hosted at least one high-brow art party — despite a court order barring further events at the residence.)
Aside from throwing what neighbors said were disruptive parties, he was known to park his fleet of luxury cars in front of a fire hydrant on the block.
The circa-1860 townhouse underwent a gut rehab in recent years, emerging in early 2017 with an ask of $6.25 million.
