Evictions: 0
Eviction information is pulled from NYC housing court records. There are no legally registered evictions associated with this property.
Rent Stabilized Units: No
We look at annual DHCR registrations to determine if a building has rent-stabilized units. It is possible that a landlord missed an annual registration and therefore the info is not reflected on openigloo. We update this data when the city updates their records.
