"William J. Lombardy, a #chess grandmaster and a mentor to Bobby Fischer, has called Stuyvesant Town home for 39 years. The 78-year-old maintains he always paid his rent, if not always on time. But court records show that he owes about $49,000 in rent. Since the 80-acre redbrick apartment complex in Manhattan was sold a decade ago, its management has been accused of employing tough tactics with tenants. Yet records show that William was afforded many openings by his landlord and the courts to prevent his eviction. His responses have only prolonged the case. For one of the country's greatest chess players, it's a familiar approach. Although a final notice of eviction could be served soon, it may not come to that. "I don't want the apartment anymore; it's too late, I'm out of here," said William, who hopes to return to Kansas. @jtaggfoto photographed William while on #nytassignment." By nytimes on Instagram.
