Stacey Widlitz, a retail analyst, has paid over $1.39 million for one-bedroom, one-bath unit at 5 Franklin Place, a 20-story building that opened in 2015 with 53 residences. She purchased the unit while the building was still under construction.
Widlitz, who has appeared on CNBC, says that her lawyer and real estate agents at Douglas Elliman had promised that her apartment will have “full city and skyline views, ” she claims in a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit reported by the New York Post, and all she got was an apartment with windows that opened onto a brick wall, according to a lawsuit.
She is seeking unspecified damages. [NYP]
