Manhattan Club Lawsuit

Hi Sharon--In case you do not know the history of that building, I know about 45 years worth . It has changed names and the north side split off. For example in the 1970s, the area of the building now known as Manhattan Club was part of the hotel and was owned by Sheraton Hotels and known as The New York Sheraton. In, I believe, the mid 1980s, it was sold to Omni Hotels and was renamed as the Omni Park Central. In the 1990s, it was sold again to a private group and just became the Park Central Hotel. It was in the early 2000s that the north side of the building was split off from the hotel and became the Manhattan Club. I have no idea when the address for the north side of the building was legally changed to 200 W. 56th Street, but I believe it was the early 2000s. As an aside, some additional history is the north side of the building on the ground floor served as the area for retail and service type operations for the guests (e.g. gift shop, beauty shop, barber shop) Also, FYI, NY Mob figure Albert Anastasia (head of what was known as Murder Inc.) was murdered himself in 1957 in the barber shop of the building. At that time it was known as the Park Sheraton Hotel.

I was just looking at a copy of our deed from Dec 1998 and I noticed that we have a particular unit # in the building known as The Park Central Condominium and the street number is 870 Seventh Ave. This is the Park Central Hotel. Does this mean that my timeshare is actually located in the Park Central Hotel, not The Manhattan Club? We've always stayed at 200 West 56th Street. Now I'm confused...not that I wasn't before.

Those addresses in Arizona are not under T Park Central. They are under Equiant Financial Services. That's how the mortgages are collected. The TMC financial services however are located in East Stroudsburg, PA. .I believe Equiant Financial specializes in financing TimeShares only and nothing else. The mystery money trail continues!

Thank you, thank you Nina Barchan and Irene Smalls for this amazing research you have done. I think it critical that you forward this data to both NYAG Schneiderman AND to Justice Eileen Rakower. You seem to have uncovered proof of what's really going on, and you may be the first to have done so. My timeshare mortgage and maintenance fee bills all come from/payments go to T (no period) Park Central LLC, but at different addresses: one address is PO Box 78843, Phoenix, AZ 85062-8843; another is 5401 N Pima Rd, Suite 150, Scottsdale, AZ 85250 (I cannot find a site for either of these on the internet, no phone numbers either). "For correspondence only," T Park Central gives 112 N Courtland St, East Stroudsburg, PA 18301 (which is the same address given on TMC Financial Department letterhead paper, sometimes at the header, sometimes at the bottom). However, if you look up T Park Central, LLC online, the address given is 200 W 56th Street, New York, New York (which we all know is The Manhattan Club address). Very, very odd arrangement. I would cut and paste your amazing research and send it in letters myself to Schneiderman and Rakower. But that would only be hearsay. It would carry so much weight and be so effective if you, as the researchers, would please send your info directly to both the NYAG and the Judge. Thank you for the time you have both spent on this.

Thanks, Gerard. It seems strange to me that my invoices and statements are printed on letterhead paper of T Park Central with those several addresses (2 in AZ and 1 in PA), if the addresses are actual locations for Equiant Financial. T Park Central is the "Lender" on my Deed; Equiant Financial shows up nowhere. Apparently it's all the same company, with different names to protect the guilty?

Carole487: Thank you for that interesting info! The Manhattan Club came into existence before the early 2000's though because our first visit to the sales office was in the the summer of 1998 and we were by no means amongst the first.

One TMC owner purchased a time share in November of 2010. His deed was never registered on official NYS Real Estate Records. He saw a post on The Manhattan Club Timeshare Scam Facebook page, checked and refused to continue to pay maintenance fees for a timeshare he did not have legal title to. TMC's response to the TMC owner: They have my deed and should have it recorded in 30 days, no real answer why it hasn't been since I spoke to TMC in the beginning of June. TMC employee assures it will get recorded.

Can any one explain to me; why my deed at the Manhattan Club appears under two different boroughs in New York. In 1997 when I purchased, my deed appears in Manhattan but in 2013 is under Queens borough

We want to thank everyone who have posted valuable information on lawsuit as we live out-of-state and it's impossible to even try to get through this legal maze. We were unable, yet again, to get time at Manhattan Club even though we had days during the most popular time of the year and wanted to just exchange them for a couple of other days, which we were told we could easily do, with months of notice. We are hoping there is resolution soon as the cost every year is way beyond what was told to us and has increased substantially since our initial purchase. It disgusts us to read how much money is going into the pockets of these crooks..

Everyone must read the AG response that tonya420 so brilliantly advised us of on Aug 20. It's not full of legal jargon and is very easy to read. I can only say BRAVO Mr. Farooq (the Asst AG who's handling this case). This is just one of my favorite sentences from his brief to the court: "However, NYAG was concerned that Respondents were violating the spirit, if not the plain terms of the first three stipulations by paying consultants, in addition to employees, and reimbursing Respondent Lager for a $560 dinner, a $250 lunch, $281 for maintenance of a Porsche, and the $2,500 annual membership fee for his American Express Centurion Card bill." He also describes the expenditure of almost $400,000 illegally withdrawn from one of the frozen accounts to pay, among other things, health insurance for the Eichner family. Bottom line is, AG's office (via Mr. Farooq) is advising the judge not to release funds. After reading his reasoning, seems like she'll have to agree with him. Thanks Tonya!!

A settlement amount of $7 million? ... relative chicken feed on this scenario, needs to be more in the range of $500 million.

I agree 7 million dollars is not enough restitution for 18,000+ TMC Owners. This is where we TMC owners need to flex our muscles. Let's all write to the NY AG and Judge Rakower letting them know 7 million dollars is not enough. TMC Owners started the NY AG investigation with our letters now we can move this settlement more to our benefit with our letters.

Here are the addresses:
