    Urban American Property Management owns and manages apartments in New York City, Westchester County, and New Jersey. In the 2000s, Urban American was one of New York Citys leading private-equity-backed real estate investment firms. Its CEO is Philip Eisenberg. The firm has slimmed since then, though it still maintains a considerable presence in the city. In 2012 it sold off part of one of its Uptown apartment packages, and in 2014 it listed a 14-building block of its properties in Brooklyn. In 2010 it formed an initiative to provide housing discounts to veterans returning from international deployment. The firm has also been involved in a few controversies. In 2009 the firm sued the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development over lost income allegedly tied to deferred rent increases at three of its Harlem multi-family apartment complexes. The following year, Urban American was accused by tenants at several of its Harlem rent-stabilized apartments of trying to squeeze them out by increasing rents and refusing maintenance.
