November 20, 2013– DNAinfo is reporting how our favorite “authority” figure, Madelyn Wils, CEO of the Hudson River Park Trust, is suing a rent stabilized tenant in an apartment she owns, “Wils is suing a longtime rent-stabilized tenant in a bid to evict her and her children, get $30,000 in back rent and legal fees, DNAinfo New York has learned. Wils, former chairwoman of Community Board 1, and her husband Steven refused to renew tenant Marla Mase’s 30-year-old lease at 180 Duane St. in July — saying they needed the apartment for their adult son, according to lawyers for both sides. “I built this home and my business when there was nothing down here,” said Mase, 49, a singer/poet and owner of event planning company “Party Poopers.” She pays $1,000 per month for her third-floor loft, which the Wilses say is worth at least $7,000 a month.”
Yes, this is the same Madelyn Wils who openly proclaimed that federal funds were used to build a $5 Million dog run in her Hudson River Park. Yes, this is the same Madelyn Wils who sneaked in loud concerts on Pier 26 this summer, who orchestrated a sneaky attempt to add a tax to people living next to her poor run Hudson River Park, who proceeded to build a restaurant and boat complex on Pier 26 in flagrant violation of CB1 resolutions, and on and on.
