Upper East Siders Suing Over Subway 'Bait and Switch'


One group of New Yorkers is doing something that millions of others might like to try: suing the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

But the residents at 233 East 69th St., left, have a very specific reason, according to last week's report in The Real Deal.

The Upper East Siders argue that the MTA illegally changed the plans for ventilation structures, dramatically increasing their size. The move is a "bait and switch," according to an East Side Council Member who says the neighbors "have a right to be upset."
