Are YOU my landlord?
Move over Pictionary. The Village Voice has just unleashed a new "game" called "Who's My Landlord?." Rule Numero Zero? "Your building sucks" because otherwise "you really wouldn't care who you wrote your monthly check to." But it's not so simple to determine who your landlord is. Slums have a surprising tendency to change hands, city records can be woefully incomplete, and some buildings don't even show up in the deed recording system because the building is in foreclosure (in which case you will need to turn to New York Supreme Court to find out the identify of the person engaging in domestic terrorism against you and your building). The game may not be simple to win, but at least this sets forth how to play. (Village Voice)
