Rent-stabilized tenants at two Upper West Side buildings are alleging that they are being harassed by their landlord, the Laurence Gluck-lead Stellar Management.

Roughly 20 tenants at 50 And 70 West 93rd Street say that they have received notices and phone calls asking them to move out. If the accusations are true, such requests would be a violation of the tenants’ rent-stabilized leases.

Other tenants told the Daily News they had allegedly been offered tens of thousands of dollars to leave their apartments.

Stellar bought the two buildings in 2006. Officials criticized Stellar earlier this year after the landlord prevented rent-stabilized tenants from using the gym, rooftop and pool at a 23-story building on West End Avenue and 92nd Street. [NYDN] — Claire Moses
