Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

Virginie Sommet otherwise know as "Madame V" has been operating this illegal business in Chinatown for over 15 years and putting peoples lives in danger. Her gallery was a front for SRO Slum Lord Hotels, she had two huge lofts full of beds in Chinatown.These shady lofts according to many sources had rats, bedbugs and loaded with fire hazards . She is currently living in Brooklyn at 137 Decatur Street where she bought a brown stone building and creating more illegal SRO units in the building to rent to foreigners from European countries such as France in parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan using different names and outside sources. thousands of dollars were ripped off from unsuspecting tourist & students who lived in horrible conditions, she has been committing fraudulent activity. The DOB has shut down her illegal business in manhattan so now her focus is to us the Brooklyn Brownstone to restart her operation. A full investigation in under way and her property will be for sale soon !

Complete articles about her are here along with photos!
