Merchants at the Bronx Terminal Market—who are being pushed out to make way for a shopping mall—plan to stage a rent strike tomorrow, according to the Neighborhood Retail Alliance. Not paying rent is, we have found, a very good way to get evicted. On the other hand, if you are going to be evicted anyway, why not raise a fuss?
The market is one of several Bloomberg no-bid deals that have raised suspicions—read Tom Robbins to figure this one out –and which could prove to be a huge liability for him this fall. But so far, Ferrer hasn’t taken the bait.
