The city plans to auction off liens on two Harlem apartment buildings partly owned by City Council member Inez Dickens, the New York Daily News reported. The two properties — 2153 and 2155 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard — are $48,375 behind in payments.

Dickens inherited a 50 percent ownership in the properties from her late father, Council member Lloyd Dickens. Despite her stake in the buildings, she has no role in their management, a spokesperson told the Daily News.

“The council member is not engaged in any way with the real estate side,” the spokesperson told the paper. “Her family actually manages that … she doesn’t draw a salary from the real estate business.”

The buildings are located in between West 127th and West 128th streets.

This is not the first time the family has fallen behind in payments. Inez Dickens and her family two years ago owed $41,277 in back taxes on four Harlem properties — one of which is currently in debt — that she paid off. [NYDN]Zachary Kussin
