Stopping Illegal Hotels
This month, I joined Borough President Brewer, Congressman Nadler, Senators Krueger and Espaillat, Assembly Members Gottfried and Rosenthal, Council Members Johnson and Rosenthal, and many other local elected officials in writing to Mayor de Blasio to encourage him to issue formal memoranda in opposition to A.7848/S.5039 and A.7495/S.5637. These pieces of legislation would undermine the enforcement of our zoning and housing laws, and lead to an increase in the number of illegal hotels in residential buildings. Please see our letter below.
