New Yorker Condominium neighbors take the gloves off, fight over youth hockey

David and Shira Maya claim their unit’s value has plummeted due to upstairs kids’ active lifestyles

There’s a legal faceoff between neighbors at the New Yorker Condominium — and this lawsuit over kids playing hockey might have teeth.

At 1474 Third Avenue at 83rd Street — where condos have sold for as much as $5.5 million — the children of banking bigwig Ehren Stenzler and wife Colleen are using the hallway as a hockey rink and driving their downstairs neighbors crazy, a new lawsuit filed by David and Shira Maya alleges.

The Stenzlers, who own both units on the 11th floor of the 18-story co-op, elected not to combine the apartments, effectively turning the hallway as a rink for the kids, the New York Post reported.

The Mayas have sued both the upstairs neighbors and the condo board.

“The noises have also decimated the value of plaintiff’s apartment in the condominium,” the Mayas, who bought their 10th floor apartment for $2 million in 2008, claimed the lawsuit. “Afterall, who in their right mind would purchase an expensive apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with the Stenzlers and their family directly overhead making living conditions in the apartment altogether intolerable?”

Adam Leitman Bailey, who represents the Stenzlers, says the neighbors are “bullies” and “cantankerous.” The Stenzlers plan to countersue. [NYP]Dusica Sue Malesevic
