Unregistered Businesses

In New York State, to conduct business as a Limited Liability Company or Corporation, you must register the business with the Department of State (DOS). One may not use, inc., corp., LLC, in a business name unless it is registered. The landlords used an unregistered business entity name, 66 West 138 Street Holdings LLC, in answer to DHCR; they also use companies which are not registered with the State. These are companies the landlord used/uses which are conducting business without a legitimate entity.
