Marian Levine, daughter of Carnegie Delicatessen founder Milton Parker, is suing her husband, Sandy Levine, who works as the deli manager, over an alleged affair with a tenant who lives above the famous eatery.

Levine alleges that her husband has been carrying on a tryst with Penkae Siricharoen, who pays an “artificially depressed” rent of $975 in her apartment above the deli at 854 Seventh Avenue.

She learned of the affair in 2011, the New York Post reported, after her husband signed an agreement giving Siricharoen preferential rent in the 10-unit building for the next 15 years.

Her husband “acted without authority and fraudulently omitted to disclose the true nature of his relationship,” her suit, which names both her husband and Siricharoen as defendants, alleges.

The scandal isn’t the first time the property has known notoriety. A drug heist in the apartments above the deli devolved into a massacre in 2001 that left three dead and two injured. [NYP]Julie Strickland
