Stuy Town residents consider rent strike: report
Some Stuy Town residents are considering a rent strike after they say their rent was increased before their leases expire.
According to NY1, about 1,300 residents of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village are upset because they recently received a notice upping their rent.
Some of the residents’ rent will jump past one thousand dollars, according to NY1.
This news comes after a lawsuit was settled about apartments being stripped of rent stabilization.
“Effectively it’s an eviction notice,” one resident told the news station.
