UPDATE: Downtown Manhattan Shul Gets Stay Of Eviction

12/20/2012 - 19:00

Members of the Sixteenth Street Synagogue in Manhattan’s Flatiron District have won a temporary stay of an eviction order that would have had them vacating the premises by Jan. 7th.

The congregation said it will now seek to be recognized as a co-owner of the building.

The parties will appear in court the following day to argue before a state Supreme Court judge whether the stay will be continued or denied.

In the latest development in a long property dispute, Judge Debra James last week upheld the motion to evict.
