Big Billionaires’ Row Rally Urging Hochul to Sign LLC Transparency Act


Manhattan, New York — Elected officials, watchdogs, unions, and housing groups will gather Wednesday to urge Governor Hochul to sign a high-profile bill that will publish the identities of owners of LLC shell companies, expose bad landlords, and reduce New York’s shameful role in global money laundering and corruption.

37% of Manhattan properties are owned by LLC shell companies – five times the New York State average. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has said that “Central Park skyscrapers” are one reason the US may be “the best place to hide and launder ill-gotten gains.”

Tomorrow, supporters of the LLC Transparency Act will gather at Billionaires’ Row in Manhattan to call for Governor Hochul to sign the bill and end New York’s role in global money laundering and corruption.

When: Wednesday, September 27th at 10am
Where: 111 W 57th St between 6th and 7th Ave
Who: Assemblymember Emily Gallagher, Senator Brad Hoylman-Sigal, Churches United for Fair Housing, Community Service Society, Fifth Avenue Committee, Hotel Trades Council, Housing Justice for All, New York City and Vicinity District Council of Carpenters, Reinvent Albany, Stabilizing NYC, and more!
