    come he can get away with publicly defaming Jews and brazenly run for an office of public leadership. Is he above the law? What else might he be doing that’s outside the law? What kind of creature is he? Oy!

    Because, of course, non-Jewish landlords in NYC are not greedy.

    Any landlord wants top dollar! Y rent to the poor when u can rent to the rich! Doesn’t matter if the landlord is Jewish or not! Jewish lubavitch landlords are greedy and mercy free right here in crown heights to their very own JEWISH NRIGHBORS! DID YOU EVER HEAR OF A VERY NICE LANDLORD!?!? apts are for rent not gemach or homeless shelter! I’m not saying it’s right. I’m just saying these are the facts and has nothing to do with being Jewish!

    The cost of housing, buying and renting, has gotten out of control. Look at Crown Heights. Who has been raising the cost of housing? If most of the landlords are Jewish and kicking out people, it is a chilul Hashem and the landlords should do teshuva before even worse anti-Semitism, chas v’chalilah, starts. Greed is a trait of Bilaam. NYC needs affordable housing.

    Only Blacks in America have a license to be as racist as they want. They are the most racist. Obama has shown them a wonderful example.

    1. First he accuses Jews( like there is a plot) to be greedy and to get more money, they push out other minorities. Are these apt’s rent controlled so the only way to raise rents is for the tenant to leave and then raise the rent on a new tenant? 2. Notice, this guy accuses Jews of wanting more money and HE goes and begs citizens to GIVE him money to run for office!! What a shleeze. 3. If a landlord can raise rent just by giving a 30 days notice, is that saying that NO black or hispanic can… Read more »

    “Who has been raising the cost of housing?” That this has anything to do with greedy Jewish landlords is a facile canard. I know you mean well, but this is shockingly ignorant and epically myopic. This is straight up stormfront trash. Unaffordable housing for medium and low income earners in economically productive areas is a WORLD WIDE crisis. Paris, London, Tokyo, Vancouver, LA, SF, NYC, Sydney, Melbourne…Seriously, it takes a minute of googling to notice this trend and it isn’t the fault of any particular group of people but is STRUCTURAL. There are theories but few if anybody fully understands… Read more »

    So heating landlords because they are Jewish is ok?

    what that photo is about showing three seated people w yarmulkes seemingly with handcuffs and police behind them. whats the story behind that ?

    So what else is new? They are famous for mouthing off about anyone they can use as a victim. It’s precisely because Jews are in general so mentchlich (compared to them) that they feel free to bully and abuse. Anyone with half a brain will disregard their rants. My landlord happens to be wonderful and does not charge me extortionate prices.

    I agree with 13. MOST lubavitchers are saying that the jewish landlords are greedy.

    he’s participating in a court-ordered anger management program, the consequence of his pleading guilty earlier this year to violating an order of protection taken out by his ex-wife. In January, the candidate copped to a misdemeanor criminal contempt charge for knowingly violating a family court restraining order his ex-wife had obtained. His former spouse alleged that, despite the standing order of protection, Lopez-Pierre twice approached her in the fall of 2015 to threaten her. After more than a year of hearings, Lopez-Pierre confessed to the crime and agreed to enter the anger management program. The criminal court judge also issued… Read more »

    Disturbed individual might just get elected to public office. What wild & crazy world this has become. Sick freak! But at least his faults are out in the open for all to see.

    Accurate and true! Landlords need to raise the price because mortgages are sky high and interest is sky high. We own an 8 family building in crown heights and years and years and have yet to see the peiros – till then we struggle constantly.

    Don’t think all this necessarily will prevent this creature from getting elected to office in this day and age!
