2008_07_dinkins.jpgIn a sort of addendum to coverage of Lenox Terrace, the Harlem apartment building with well-know residents like Representative Charles Rangel and Governor Parterson who have rent-stabilized apartments, the NY Times points out that 215 East 68th Street has a lot of political starpower. Some tenants include former Mayor David Dinkins, former police commissioner Howard Safir, former fire commissioner Thomas Von Essen, and New York county clerk Norman Goodman (Dinkins, Goodman and Safir say they pay market rate--or "a lot" in--rent) and many say their friendship with the building owner Rudin Management helped get them. Back at Lenox Terrace, the Post breaks down the famous people who seem to be paying not very much for their apartments.
