An Upper East Side tenant sued his landlord and business management, claiming they erroneously cleared out his apartment and tossed his belongings in the city dump.

Plaintiff Nilay Sharoff accused his landlord and building management at 409 East 74th Street of sending a cleaning contractor to empty his home’s contents in unit 2D, though the intended apartment was unit no. 2B. As a result, Sharoff returned home on Oct.9, 2013 to find his apartment empty, save one television and one PlayStation 3 system, according to the lawsuit.

“Plaintiff lost … clothes, kitchen items, bed, dresser, sofa and other furniture, bathroom items, video games, personal identity information … credit cards … memorabilia, photographs and souvenirs,” according to the suit.

The lawsuit aims to recover unspecified restitution from building owner Goldie Holding and management Mautner-Glick, as well as the cleaning company, which has not yet been identified. The New York Daily News’ attempts to reach Goldie Holding and Mautner-Glick Tuesday were not successful. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
