An actual nightmare

Posted 4 years ago

He treats his building as a college dorm and his tenants as children including entering apartments unannounced and harassing young women on a consistent basis. Keep in mind i am a 35 year old young woman and a professional so this behavior was alarming to the say the least. When it was time to resign the lease i asked for the massive rat infestation to be taken care of at which point the harrasssment began. He made my life a nightmare even though i told him i recently found out i was pregnant and asked him to please stop and leave me alone. He sent me an “eviction” aka an email... not a legal eviction... with no grounds as I had paid every month and never broke his lease. At this point I left as I was mostly concerned about the stress from hartassment for myself and my unborn child. I left no damage to the apartment. As he refused to respond to me when i requested my legally owed security back, i filed suit. He responded with a vindictive counterclaim for nearly $5000 of false damages, proceeded to lie on the stand and somehow won a $1000 judgment against me. Due to the courts mistake of not hearing both cases at the same time this occurred as the case was heard by 2 different judges, the second barely letting me explain my side. In addition to all of this there was a recently published Ny tImes article about this man and his renting of illegal apartments. He has no morals, will falsely accuse you of anything he feels like and beware if you are a woman. He has some sort of misogynistic issues and consistently harasses young women who are his tenants. The man quite frankly should be in jail but the small claims court system in NYC is a joke... i was advised by public defenders that a harassment case would be too hard to fight as well. Please do not rent from this man unless you are prepared for a living nightmare.
