1) Mr. Espada apparently doesn't know how much he paid for his own apartment. As much as I would love the comps to be higher in my building, Mr. Espada paid $225K on 8/9/07 for the unit...not $250K, as he erroneously states in the article. Check out PropertyShark records HERE for confirmation or just peruse the rolling property sales records that the City keeps.
2) I don't know where in the world he is parking at 10pm in Bedford Park. Every full time (and true) resident of Bedford Park knows if you don't have a garage spot you cannot find parking that late. If he parked in an adjacent building's driveway he would only be able to do that for a short time (maybe to drop off some stuff to make it look like he lives here?). If he left the vehicle there over night it appears Mr. Espada was breaking the parking laws of Bedford Park...AGAIN.
3) Residents saw Mr. Espada swoop into Bainbridge during the cover of darkness the evening before this "interview" to drop off some personal effects that would give off the appearance of full-time residency. A tipster also saw him leave just a quickly as he had come. Click HERE for the tipster's eye-witness account.
Just a few notes and observations...
