East Harlem tenants sue ‘slumlord’ over deplorable conditions, stolen money

An East Harlem landlord is allegedly stealing money, forcing poor living conditions and putting people’s lives in danger, a group of fed-up tenants claim in a new lawsuit filed on Thursday.

Nearly 40 tenants who live in five buildings on East 103rd Street allege that the properties’ landlord, Isaac Kassirer and his real estate firm, Emerald Equities, stole tens of thousands of dollars worth of security deposits and “unlawfully commingled them with the landlord’s own operating funds.”
