It will never change, just hopefully phase out little by little.

However, things could change like RS being abolished or less restrict if NY had a sizable and majority Republican government.

NY has had it before where the Governor Pataki, sen. leader Bruno and Guilliani (all republicans) where in power at the same time. And if you noticed it was on their watch when the 1997 "rent wars" was created and deregulation was given birth too. And NY has def improved from a quality of life standpoint due to deregulation and laws passed in the "rent wars" era. You can thank republicans for that.

Hopefully NY can once again have a republican majority government to fast track the phase out period of RS.

Remember...

REPUBLICANS = CAPITALISM (THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICA)
DEMOCRATS = SOCIALISM (TAKE FROM "RICH" TO GIVE TO THE LAZY)

Maybe you could replace "2 family house" with "apartment building with 6 or more units" and the story might work better.

It was an example to prove a point. Its the principal of the story. You want to reap the rewards of your labor.

Yes, that has been identified as "predatory equity."
Unethical, if not quite illegal.

It was done in the 1970's to create Mitchell-Lama cooperative housing and it can readily be done again on a far wider scale.
Let the LORDS go buy up Philadelphia, or Cairo, or to HELL for that matter!

Landlords are a hangover from feudal times and like royalty, superstitions, and archaic religions they should be done away with.
This is a good idea with one problem. Experience has taught me that in NYC rental housing, EVERYONE is wrong. Tenants abuse the system, landlords abuse the system, all groups have members who are willing to abuse the system - "it's all about MEEEE !!" is the slogan. Take the money and run, the rest of society be damned.

There is a percentage who are literally incapable of working for any sort of common good. I see this in Harlem every day. When is "the city" coming to clean the garbage I heaped up yesterday ? When is "the city" giving me another check for my 12th child ? Sure, I have been unable to properly train and socialize my 11th child, but he is in school now and it is the problem of "the city." Why won't "the city" train my child properly ? And since they won't, they are racist and I am filing a law suit ... and so on.

On the other hand, I know of very well-run TIL buildings, and it might be an idea to focus on similar strategies.

"Reap the rewards" ? How so ? Do tell.

Hint: By having money already. I know many, many people who work very hard and contribute much, and yet reap few rewards. Not all of us want to work at a bank or elsewhere in the financial sector. And not all of us who make the choice to work in nonprofit, in education, in social services, etc., have the requisite inherited wealth or property in hand.
