One Big Family

Is it really true that buildings do sometimes sell for $1? Yes. And do they have scary terminology attached as a condition of sale for the price of a candy bar? You betcha with liens and tax requirements, etc. This leads me to question the realisticness of the 'urban novel', The Young Landlords. Set in 1979 Harlem, these peskery 15-year-olds get served with a tenement building I haven't finished reading, and am far from it, but there are some disagreements brewing...
