NY Hell’s Angels selling infamous East Village clubhouse

Alexander went to jail for selling cocaine, got kicked out of the club in the ‘90s, and died in 2007. The deed was transferred from one of Alexander’s heirs to the HA in 2018, paving the way for a sale.A contract has been drawn up between the HA and a corporation listed as 77 East 3rd Street LLC. That firm is linked to Nathan Blatter of Whitestone Realty Group, a commercial real estate investor. No sale price was included. The Angels bought the building for a song back in the 1970s.

In 1983, then-president Sandy Alexander changed the building’s deed to name himself and his family as rent-free tenants, and stipulated that his heirs “shall receive half of the proceeds” from any sale.
There has been much drama.

A verbal war broke out over a bench installed outside of the East 3rd Street building. There was a 2016 shooting and a 2018 beating of a deliveryman, both over the parking spaces outside.
