[New York City] Comptroller Scott Stringer is calling on the city's Department of Buildings to do a top-down review of private-owned public spaces (POPS) in the city after his latest audit found that many buildings were still in violation of the laws, and obstructed or restricted entry to the public. This is Stringer's second audit of POPS sites within the same year. The results of the first audit were published this past April, and in it Stringer's office found that of the 333 POPS sites they had surveyed 182 sites were non-compliant with the existing laws. ... "New Yorkers are getting cheated out of public resources -- and the developers are getting benefits and giving back nothing in return," said Stringer in a statement.

There are now big hedge funds buying up properties from foreclosures all over the country and turning them into rentals. Then raising the rents, just like you say but usually more than $600 per year. Then they hire maintenance companies to maintain them or, at least, pretend to maintain them.
