Soho Condo Owners Breathe a Sigh of Relief A Neighbor Who Allegedly Owes Outstanding Charges Has Moved Out

95 Greene Street in Soho (David Chiu)

It appears that the owners of a condo building in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood are relieved that one of their own has finally moved out.

The New York Post reported that celebrity photographer Ken Nahoum, who once owned a penthouse at 95 Greene St., left the building earlier this month, perhaps finally putting to rest tensions between Nahoum and his neighbors that had lasted for about 30 years.

According to the story, Nahoum had allegedly refused to pay his common charges and apparently still owes over $250,000 to the condo, said an attorney for the board. As a result, the building cut off elevator access to Nahoum's penthouse. The board had previously sued Nahoum over delinquent fees. 

Two years ago, after declaring bankruptcy, Nahoum sold his penthouse to private lender Titan Capital to settle a $13.5 million debt, according to the Post..

In a letter (whose subject heading read, “Our Long Condominium Nightmare is Over!") distributed to the building's owners and residents, the board wrote that Nahoum did not make any money from the penthouse sale.
