The Brooklyn Paper Notes The Tremendous Advocacy Of Staff Attorney Sarah Robinson

In three separate articles referring to the Stark v. Fringo case, The Brooklyn Paper focuses on the tremendous advocacy of Sarah Robinson, a Staff Attorney in the Brooklyn Neighborhood Office of The Legal Aid Society, on behalf of low income tenants in Bushwick.

Some of landlord Aron Stark’s tenants’ leases, presented by Sarah Robinson in court, show his rental properties in 2012 populated by unrelated roommates paying an average of $1,800 for two-and-three bedroom apartments, in what some renters describe as squalid conditions. According to The Brooklyn Paper, four properties have 36 open buildings department violations, including for a cracked ceiling, missing railings, faulty boilers, and exposed wiring, and the row house at 1339 Hancock St. has racked up $24,300 in fines, city records show. Some of the fines are directed at the former owner.
