LDS Planned NYC Purchase Tied Up in Lawsuit
The planned purchase of a New York City convent by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been tied up in a lawsuit by developers who had also planned to buy the property. The developers, Jeffrey Levein and David Stein, say that the Archdiocese of New York verbally agreed to sell St. Zita's Villa, located at 141-43 West 14th Street and through the block at 144 West 15th Street, but had not yet signed a purchase contract. Instead Levein and Stein were told in June by Sister Bernadette Kenny that the convent was being sold to the LDS Church.
