HOW MANY MORE BUILDINGS do Ben Shaoul and his shadow companies control? We've discovered 5 more definite addresses to add to our list, but we know that Shaoul's company Magnum advertises rental apartments at other addresses. It is a pity to know that very many tenants are subject to the indifference and neglect of these "managers". Tenants should be warned away from buildings managed by Fortune East, Magnum Real Estate Services, and PVE Associates.
We are updating our Map and Violations page and invite our readers to inform us of other buildings and/or building conditions at the Shaoul properties. Please email East4thJane with information.
