Last night Newschannel 4 ran a great story about the tenants of landlord Joel Israel, whom City Limits' Brooklyn Bureau was the first to report on, in January, and was also the focus of a Times story last week. The TV piece features a priceless moment where the camera confronts a man entering an elevator, who claims not to know Israel or anything about the apartments where, tenants say, Israel's work crews tore out floors, ripped down walls and removed plumbing—and left the un-renovated rubble behind.

Turns out the man was, in fact, Israel. Watch a here.
