    Rent's Going Up for NYC Stabilized Apartments

    The rent is going up for New Yorkers living in some one million rent-stabilized apartments.

    New York City's Rent Guidelines Board voted Thursday night to raise rents by 2.25 percent on one-year leases and 4.5 percent on
    two-year leases.

    Tenants argued for a rent freeze, saying the hikes aren't justified, but building owners complained of getting socked with
    property taxes and double-digit water and sewer rate hikes.

    Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer warned that the City is turning its affordable housing stock into a ``once-affordable
    memory.''
