Three Brooklyn pols — Councilman Brad Lander and Assembly Members James Brennan and Joan Millman — spoke out against the closing of Park Slope assisted living facility Prospect Park Residence and called on the owner to reconsider. And it turns out the owner is, in fact, also the owner of the building.
The Real Deal dug up the details and said owner Haysha Deitsch “has kept the reason for the closure under wraps,” implying the previously cited tax increase didn’t make sense. The publication also spoke to “a source close to the situation,” who said the owner “likely intends to turn the center into condos.” Although all those lawsuits could be a factor too.
More than 100 seniors live at the facility. Could this turn into another LICH?
