NYC Couple's Lawsuit: Stifling Heat From Downstairs Bagel Shop Drove Away Our Tenant & Is Driving Down Value Of Our 2nd Floor Condo

In New York City, the New York Post reports:
  • Two Upper West Side condo owners say a ground-floor bagel shop is making their apartment “uninhabitable” by causing temperatures to reach a stifling 100 degrees, a new lawsuit charges.

    Philip and Yarina Birnbaum are airing their beef with Bagel Talk, located directly underneath their unit, 2A, at 200 W. 78th St., in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

    The heat, which hovers around 90 degrees year-round, has already driven one tenant out and has caused the condo’s value to plummet, the suit says. It claims that the shop refused to repair its ventilation system.

    “I just made a $25,000 deposit to the ventilation company. It should be fixed in a matter of days,” owner Abid Islam, 50, told The Post.
