That BS charter that allows them to be tax-exempt is for a seminary college, you know, religious based education. That was given in what, 1843 or somewhere around that time. How about an audit to see if they still comply with any sort of definition of religious or theologian exemption?

if HWS paid their share along with the other tax exempts thru the benefits assessment district then the city would have collected over $15 million over the years

HWS threatened to sue the city over the benefits assessment district

and people are happy NYS gave the city a one time $10 million

some of the money from the $10 million from NYS should be used to find a method to collect 'donations' every year from the tax exempts
