The board of directors of the National Council of Young Israel has voted again to sell its longtime Manhattan headquarters to a condo developer for $5.4 million. The approval comes days after a state Supreme Court justice nullified a previous board vote by one of the nation's largest Orthodox membership groups for not being conducted properly. Tuesday night's vote was 18-1 with one abstention, according to NCYI attorney Ken Fisher. It took place at an hourlong closed meeting at Abigael's restaurant in Manhattan.

Bad math equals no sale. That's what an acting state Supreme Court justice ruled Monday when she rejected the National Council of Young Israel's request to sell its six-story headquarters in Manhattan's Flatiron District building to a condominium developer for $5.4 million. Debra James said NCYI did not properly count the votes from its board of directors meeting when NCYI officers approved the sale at a Nov. 14, 2002 board meeting.
