Accused of jumping the queue for four-bedroom in affordable housing building

The president of a Kips Bay affordable housing co-op board is battling to hold onto his four-bedroom unit after allegedly cutting ahead of others on the waiting list.

A neighbor of president Mark Andermanis filed a lawsuit against him, claiming he violated city rules to secure the apartment at the 748-unit co-op at East Midtown Plaza at 333 East 23rd Street. Andermanis was ordered last year in New York City Supreme Court to return the apartment to Department of Housing Preservation and Development, but he appealed the ruling. The Appellate Division plans to hear Andermanis’ appeal tomorrow. 

Andermanis, who continues to live there, was given the okay to move in in 2012 despite failing to meet the city’s four-bedroom requirement of having a family with six or more members.

“It’s a slanderous suit that had no merit whatsoever,” Andermanis told DNAinfo. [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
