Harlem Residents Sue for Illegal Rent Hikes


Did they not get the memo?

All over New York City, rents are (finally!) going down, but apparently the owners of Harlem's Lenox Terrace are trying to raise rents, and some residents say they're doing so illegally.

LT tenants are suing the Olnick Organization, which runs the sprawling complex once dubbed "Harlem's best address." The prize they hope to win: somewhere between $400,000 and $6 million, say the tenants' lawyers.
