Slumlords





A New York housing advocacy organization recently publicized what they call the 10 worst landlords in New York City.

1. Aaron Parnes
2. Chaim Wachsman
3. Moshe Pillar
4. David Sommerstein
5. Nicholas Haros
6. Barry Singer
7. Emmanuel Ku
8. Zvi Kaufman
9. Hank Freid
10. Frank Palazollo

I'm seeing an embarrassing common denominator here.

(Update: See here, here and here for some more discussion.)

Wow Amshi, when did you get a blog?? SO far I must say you're a better commenter (that's right, I said 'commentor') than a poster. :-)

Phew,

Thanks Gd my father-in-law did not make the list.

JPT you need some contravertial postings so I can argue with you.

Anon, you're saying that like he possibly COULD have made the list. Is that because he doesn't take care of his tenants/buildings?

Krum, it depends if the person 'commentating' is Canadian or not.

I do resent that comment, Mr. Commentor/Commentator...as a Cdn., eh?

Pearlie, maybe it will be a Canadian "Commentour", eh?

If you say so. But when I speak French, it's "commentateur"!
