Hurry Up and Wait

A bit of comedy in the paper today. The city decided not to enforce the fine on Sebba Rockaway for the Hotel Wellington. This is the hotel that Sebba has owned for 17 years. Why did the city decide not to enforce the fine?

"I don't know that we wanted to do it that quickly" Albany Corporation Counsel John Reilly

This coming in the same week that Mayor Jennings said that the city would be "a lot more aggressive" in dealing with owners who let their property deteriorate.

So, if you are a delinquent property owner...you better start getting worried somewhere around 2022.
