Landlord wants ex-tenant to pay $280K for pandemic parties

The owners of a Tribeca apartment want a problematic ex-tenant — who allegedly turned the place into a rowdy night club during the pandemic — to cough up nearly $300,000 for the cost of repairs and other expenses, new court papers show.

Kurt David, 31, finally vacated the $16,000-a-month two-floor 81 Hudson St. pad in June after owners, identified as Eisdorfer 60 LLC, sued him for the raucous parties he allegedly held during the pandemic — and where a 17-year-old took a drunken spill down the stairs.

The owners filed a new case in Manhattan Supreme Court Tuesday seeking a total of $282,670 from David and his mom Jean Elbaum-David — who also signed the lease —for four months of unpaid rent, late fees, violations charges from the Department of Buildings and Sanitation, legal fees and for the cost to completely overhaul the place, the court papers allege.

The suit claims the company had to pay $149,559 to restore the apartment back to what it was before David wreaked havoc on it.

Specifically, the group claims they had to replace broken appliances, window shades, balcony and roof pavers, faucets, the sound system, the security and camera system, the intercom, window panes, drywall, hardwood floors and a bathroom vanity.

The owners also say they had to repaint the whole unit, fix the electrical system and bring in heavy-duty cleaners, the filing claims.

“They just eviscerated that apartment with absolutely no regard for anyone’s well being including their own,” Eisdorfer lawyer Melissa Levin told The Post. “My client hopes that they are able to be reimbursed and made whole by the courts.”

Elbaum-David’s lawyer and David did not immediately return requests for comment.
