Meet the group at Elton Street and Jamaica Avenue in Highland Park in Ridgewood. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Joined by business leaders and the Myrtle Avenue BID, Comptroller Scott stringer toured the shops along Myrtle Avenue last week.
His first stop was Joe & John’s pizzeria, where he got a regular slice.
As he was chowing down the fresh slice, he noted that he was eating with his hands, not with a fork and knife – a not-so-subtle dig at the current mayor, who was famously photographed eating pizza with utensils.
Stringer then visited Tasty Diner, but didn’t order anything. He stopped at the retail store Pants Pantry, where he was intrigued by a red suit.
His final stop was Rudy’s Bakery & Cafe.
The comptroller made the quick visit as part of a daylong trip to Queens, meeting with local stakeholders and visiting two senior centers in Ridgewood.
Over the weekend, tenants, housing advocates and elected officials hosted a march in support of universal rent control.
The event highlighted the actions of Silvershores Properties, which was named by former Public Advocate Letitia James as the “number one worst landlord in NYC” back in 2017.
Tenants say stronger rent control measures are needed to protect residents from bad landlords.
“To leave an entire building without any heat oftentimes hot water during some of the coldest days of winter is not something a good person does,” said Gloria Nieves, tenant leader of 1708 Summerfield Tenant Association.
“They have made our lives impossible and that is why we need landlords like them and all the other landlords in our neighborhood to understand that they cannot take advantage of us in this way.”
Local elected officials – including State Senators Michael Gianaris and Julia Salazar, and Assembly members Brian Barnwell and Mike Miller – attended the march and expressed their support for the cause.
