I'm sure they can find a halachic basis for doing this. Maybe the Post will get hold of this story too. Another black eye for the rest of us.

Here's a disturbing thought Where does the Haredi community do less damage to society and to nonHaredi Jews?

1. As study parasites, living on the public dole in their own self-imposed ghettos.

2. Active unscrupulous businessmen in the world, tarnishing the reputations of the rest of us.

Unscrupulous businessmen come in all stripes, religions and races. What is particularly distressing is that the public has the notion that religious Jews being pious and observant are automatically assumed to have business ethics. What the public does not get at this time is that the ethics are reserved only for fellow Jews (and then only for Jews of their particular observance level or sect-more on this later). So, when two Haredim smash an apartment so that the tenant will have to leave with no notice, no payouts and the re-finished apartment will go online as non-rent conrolled, it is distressing if not alarming to non-jews.

In effect we do it to ourselves. This week, my accounting firm landed a Haredi couple in my city. My partners in my firm are not Jewish. Naturally, one of my partners assumed that the couple would be interested in my representation. Instead they requested my male partner (my other partner is female). He told me, after the initial meeting that they could not abide having a non-observant Jew in their home. Guess I am lower than slime in their eyes.

ak - the reasoning above is what has driven several friends away from the religious.in all fairness I must say my wife is formerly orthodox and I am Roman Catholic and we have been in several Zsatmar homes as welcomed guests.

“.. must say my wife is formerly orthodox and I am Roman Catholic and we have been in several Zsatmar homes as welcomed guests.”

Very interesting… There must be some reason (monetary maybe, darchei shalom) for Satmar to be friendly to a shaigetz… Satmar think of gentile much worse than the Chabad think of gentiles…

Very generally speaking, Chabad think gentiles have a beast soul and Satmar think gentiles have no soul at all (one can guess what they think of Zionists)

Theese 2 landlords boychicks are the direct reasult of the satmerer upbringing,meaning tottal indifference to others suffering.

Sorry, don't know much about the real estate business, but what exactly are they looking to gain by destroying their property, and get rid of their Tennants? To upgrade and rent it out to a higher price?

"...what exactly are they looking to gain by destroying their property, and get rid of their Tennants? To upgrade and rent it out to a higher price?..."

They destroy what was probably a functional but almost certainly not-very-nice kitchen and bathroom, say, which they have to replace. However they might be getting 5x the rent on the open market as compared to the controlled rate - and they can get an even better rent for the place with updated K&B than with whatever crap was in place before. All a matter of dollars and cents. No soul or morals involved at all.

These people are a danger to us all and a major cause of antisemitism.

The dirty secret is that since NYC loves the increased tax revenue of gentrified buildings, they do all they can to look the other way from such outrages.
