Vegan NYC landlord refuses to rent apartments to tenants that cook meat, fish

A vegan landlord in Brooklyn, New York, has listed two one-bedroom apartments for rent, but only to tenants who agree not to cook any meat or fish in the kitchen. The landlord, Michal Arieh Lerer, is described as a "wonderful vegan landlord" and lives in the same building. The ban on meat cooking is due to the owner not wanting the smell of non-plant-based juices drifting upstairs. The apartments are currently listed for $4,500 and $5,750 per month. Some locals are taken aback by the rule, and it's unclear if it violates any laws.
