I rented from Elgart on Henry Street. It was a bad experience after the lease signing honeymoon. He was very aggressive and defensive if you complained about anything or asked for a repair. He would literally yell at you on the telephone for a reasonable request. It was abusive and bizarre. The building was rundown and the filthy laundry room usually had a machine or two out of commission. The apartment buzzers never worked. He never returned our neighbor's deposit or mine.

At some point a guy started a blog about him called Brian Elgart The Worst Landlord in Brooklyn. Very soon another one appeared called Brian Elgart The Best Landlord in Brooklyn, lol. It still exists and is clearly fake, with fake comments. Ironically the true one dissapeared.

Thanks for your comment. The original post was from 2004, so I doubt the original poster will see this. Please read the forum rules -- you need to change your user name to something that does not resemble your real name or email address. Landlords like this occasionally will make a fuss you won't like.
