Brooklyn Heights resident/GOP mayoral candidate Joe Lhota is getting a whole lotta guff from the NY Daily News about his lho property tax bill on his duplex at 35 Pierrepont Street. To be fair, they also are not fans of Democratic nom Bill DiBlasio’s tax bill in Park Slope either.
Call the waaaamublance folks, this is going to be a long campaign.
NY Post: In Brooklyn Heights, Lhota — a former Cablevision executive who also served as a deputy mayor under Rudy Giuliani — owns a penthouse duplex in an exclusive Pierrepont St. co-op where apartments go for $1.7 million.
For the past 14 years, Lhota and his fellow co-op owners have seen their tax bills cut dramatically under a state tax abatement program called J-51 that is meant to encourage affordable housing.
