New York City tenant groups have joined a growing movement for a statewide rent strike as the continued coronavirus shutdown makes working – and paying – impossible. The state’s eviction moratorium expires in June.
The majority of tenants in the Cosmopolitan Houses complex in Woodside, Queens have joined a rent strike that hopes to enlist upwards of one million New Yorkers, set to begin May 1, organizers told the Wall Street Journal on Monday. Strikers have pointed to the impossibility of making the steep monthly payments as the economy remains in suspended animation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
