Legal aid seldom used in foreclosure cases | Queens Rules
Pierre Morel, a Queens homeowner with $245,000 in mortgage debt, keeps his stretch-marked leather briefcase close at hand. The legal advisers at the Foreclosure Prevention Court Clinic in central Jamaica tell him to. Their flyers for homeowners say in capital letters: “BRING ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS.” So, Morel, a 51-year-old Haitian immigrant, takes the advice literally. His bag, pregnant with paperwork, went with him to the clinic’s legal aid session last Friday. And for now, the advice he got about its contents, piecemeal though it was, may be the only thing standing between him and foreclosure. “I’ve been coming by myself because ... market research, surveys and trends

— Jose Ricardo Aguaiza has been a leaseholder in a Queens apartment building on 45th Street in Woodside for 14 years. He lives in a one-bedroom now with his wife and their 5-year-old son, and pays $1,018 in rent. After Manhattan-based Vantage Properties, LLC bought his building in Oct. 2006, the deep-pocketed real estate investment firm sued Aguaiza three times, including twice for not paying rent. He had sent his payment in – he even had proof from the post office – but the company sued him anyway. "They are looking for opportunities to kick me out of the building.

Language Help for City's Immigrants Falls Short
Uk Do Lee, 81, from South Korea, asked social service case workers in Elmhurst, Queens, for an interpreter, to no avail. In the world’s most diverse city, it was hailed as a milestone: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg signed an executive order in July 2008 requiring every New York City agency that dealt with the public to provide interpreters, translated documents and other language help to people who spoke little or no English. The order was supposed to help immigrant New Yorkers use services and navigate a daunting city bureaucracy. And in keeping with Mr. Bloomberg’s passion for applying good business practices to city ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Charting a Better Way for Planning and Community Boards
In 2005, then-Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff and then-City Council Member John Liu reached agreement on the Flushing Commons project. But now, with the project still needing final approval from City Council, both men have moved on to other jobs leaving the validity of the agreement uncertain. The Charter Review Commission appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, though initially focused on term limits and non-partisan elections, recently invited comments about the city's Uniform Land Use Review Process , or ULURP.
