WTS Brooklyn properties for sale

    Anyone else hear the rumor that they are beginning to sell some of the residence buildings in Brooklyn? I heard from a reliable source that 2 of the residence bldgs are on the market now or will be very soon. Also was told that they plan to "layoff" 1000+ in Brooklyn Bethel by years end.

    I recently saw a post on the board about a KH for sale in Northern RI. Can anyone give me a clue where that post might be??

    I think i know which KH it is, to appease my curiosity.

    So how much cash did the WTBS actually pocket, after the sale of 360 Furman? Will they pay taxes on this amount, or still feign being a non-profit organization?
