‘Hasidic Jewish landlord trying to rid Brooklyn apartment building of Latino tenants,’ lawsuit alleges


A Hasidic Jewish landlord is being sued by Latino tenants who claim that he has purposefully neglected their rent-stabilized apartments in Brooklyn to force them to move out.

The residents – Cindy Sanchez, Sara Oyola, and Kathleen Santiago – say that Naftali Steinmetz has forced out other Latino residents of their building on Lee Avenue, which runs through a section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn that has been increasingly populated in recent years by Orthodox Jews.
