    Developer Harry Macklowe is dragging Arlene Katz, a tenant at 737 Park Avenue, into court to force her to allow contractors to upgrade her apartment. Katz is a member of the family that previously owned the luxury condo conversion building.

    The developer, in a suit filed Jan. 14 in Manhattan Supreme Court, claims that Katz, a tenant in a 19th-floor apartment, has refused to let the landlord replace windows and risers, despite a pledge to put her up at a hotel and protect her against a rent hike. [more]

    Harry Macklowe and 737 Park Avenue

    Harry Macklowe has been ordered by a judge to restore essential services at 737 Park Avenue for a Holocaust survivor who is a longtime resident of the controversial building, the New York Post reported.

    John Holzer, who has lived in the building at East 71st Street since 1980, claimed in a lawsuit in Housing Court that he had been without gas since January, according to the Post. The management of the building had also subjected him to “harassment,” he said, including intermittent shutdowns of electricity and holes punched in his walls. [more]
