Part of the job of a New York City marshal is evicting tenants and enforcing court orders. But records show that city marshal Charles Marchisotto isn’t enforcing orders at his own buildings.

Marchisotto landed on the city’s list of worst landlords last year over violations at his five-story, 38-unit Eastern Parkway property, according to the New York Post.

He has 150 open building violations and $278,000 in unpaid fines, fees and taxes. Nevertheless, Marchisotto’s gross income from 2008 to 2013 was $1.98 million, records show.

Marchisotto told the Post that the allegations against him and his buildings were fabricated by a handful of tenants. Marchisotto also acknowledged that he owed the city money, but is disputing the amount owed.

“A city inspector just came by and said that I had the cleanest, nicest building in New York City,” Marchisotto said. [NYP]Christopher Cameron

    This city is full of hypocrisy.

    After you gave him a bag full of money.

    What if you fixed the violations but your tenants keep sabotaging like flooding their radiators by turning the knobs halfway instead of absolutely off or absolutely on? Or just flooding period?

    The way owners are overcharged in fines and penalties is worse than and probably the original Broken Windows. There is no way to survive the rent regulations and the increased charges and every time my mother opens her mail, she gets another dagger in her and that’s why she refuses to discuss building operations with me. It’s designed so that she can’t handle it after more than ten years of corrupt Chinese reporters participating in witness intimidation with untrue reporting.
