TedCruz'sCrazyDad: StanTheMan: Rent-stabilized tenants in the outer boroughs are increasingly facing malign neglect from greedy landlordsUh, no, malign neglect comes from landlords who can't earn a return on investment because of rent control, so they don't improve their buildings.Santa Monica, CA has rent control.
