What to do if I recently won a money judgment against a company that owns real property and I want to garnish the rent for the property?

They own real property but the tenants pay the money to a management company. Can I still garnish the rent at the property?

Yes.  You would have to follow the NY statute regarding garnishment and serve each tenant with a garnishment proceeding.
