Go inside Brooklyn’s secret mansion, complete with ‘indentured servants’
A party planner is accused of throwing lavish affairs in a “Secret Mansion” that he didn’t own at 846 McDonald Ave. in Kensington with the aid of unpaid “indentured servants” who lived in the basement. The situation came to light when one of the “servants” refused to clean the dishes, whereupon the “master tenant,” Robin French, called 911 to report that she had armed herself with a knife and refused to leave, according to Patch.
French allegedly earned thousands of dollars listing rooms and “pods” on Airbnb as well as selling tickets to his parties, Patch reported. Josh Einhorn, who owned the building until it was foreclosed in June, told Patch he became aware of the situation when he returned from Las Vegas last fall to find that French had built a roof deck, a soundproof recording studio and a backyard bar and had installed bunk beds in the house. The sub-tenant who French threw out, college student Kay Quesada, and her husband, with the aid of the local nonprofit Equality 4 Flatbush, are now suing French for locking her out and harassment.
