Jewish Landlords [own more than 80%] of the privately-owned, for-profit, multi-family rental apartment buildings in Harlem and Washington Heightsandare at the forefront of pushing Black and Hispanic tenants out of their apartments.
Black and Hispanic people [owned less than 5%] of the privately-owned, for-profit, multi-family rental apartment buildings in Harlem and Washington Heights.
The Black and Hispanic population in Harlem and Washington Heights has declined from a high of 90% to a low of 65% in less than 20 years.
Greedy landlords are replacing Black and Hispanic tenants in Harlem and Washington Heights with high income White people.
Greedy landlords use their campaign contributions to elect politicians that they can control, like NYC Council Member Mark Levine (to weaken tenant's rights laws and pass zoning laws that leads to wide spread community displacements).
Levine Accepts $1,000 From Landlord Yeshaya Wasserman: Accused of Pushing Black Tenants Out!
A federal lawsuit was filed in 2014, claiming that landlord Yeshaya Wasserman forced out Black tenants in favor of White newcomers at rents of $2,500 per month.
In 2013, Levine was elected with about 7,000 votes of which about 5,000 votes came from the Upper Westside (Jewish community) and the Black and Hispanic candidates received about 11,000 votes from Harlem/Washington Heights (Black and Hispanic community) out of a total of 18,000 votes.
The Black and Hispanic community made the mistake of dividing their votes among 8 minority candidates.
Look at videos of Levine (1) dis-respecting a Black voter in Harlem and (2) running scared from Thomas Lopez-Pierre and (3) Thomas Lopez-Pierre publicly exposes Levine for taking real estate campaign contributions!
