Queens Condo Manager Ig­nites Fear with Hitler Posters & In­tim­i­da­tion Tac­tics

The Jewish Voice - - NEW YORK - By Dan Miller & Joyce Vetere Milowski

Neal Milano, the Sun­ny­side, Queens, con­do­minium prop­erty manager, whose ten­ants say he ha­rasses and bul­lies them, was ar­rested Sun­day.

Sources said Milano is be­ing ques­tioned over a stalk­ing com­plaint that one of his res­i­dents filed, and that po­lice are tak­ing away Milano's gun per­mits and any po­ten­tial weapons.

Au­thor­i­ties will also search his apart­ment, sources told NY1.

Milano had been out of the coun­try, but he re­turned Sun­day, and po­lice ar­rested him at the air­port around 2:20 p.m.

Po­lice of­fi­cials said Milano stalked and ha­rassed a 43-yearold woman be­tween Septem­ber of 2016 to this past July. Of­fi­cials said Milano grabbed her at one point and ver­bally ha­rassed her.

Sources said that woman no longer lives in the build­ing, and that the stalk­ing com­plaint was filed about two months ago.

Res­i­dents at the con­do­minium build­ing have also com­plained about Nazi im­agery and Con­fed­er­ate flags on dis­play in the lobby of Milano's build­ing.

Ten­ants of 47-55 39th Place Sun­ny­side Queens joined con­cerned mem­bers of the com­mu­nity and NYC Council Mem­ber and Ma­jor­ity Leader Jimmy Van Bramer and other elected of­fi­cials to protest the dis­play of posters of Hitler, Mus­solini and Stalin, posters of guns and the NRA as well as the list­ing of names of Nazis such as Josef Men­gele and Ru­dolf Hess on the build­ing directory as cur­rent res­i­dents there.

The lobby was filled with dis­plays of hate, all posted by condo manager Neil Milano, who char­ac­ter­izes him­self as an Amer­i­can Pa­triot. In ad­di­tion to the posters ref­er­enc­ing Nazis who were re­spon­si­ble for the death of mil­lions of Euro­pean Jews dur­ing The Holo­caust. The Holo­caust Mu­seum es­ti­mates that 15 to 20 mil­lion lives were lost or were im­pris­oned by the Nazi regime led by Adolf Hitler. Bonito Mus­solini, the leader of Italy dur­ing WWII joined forces with Hitler and the Nazi’s in an ef­fort to take over the world in one of the blood­i­est wars of mankind, World War II.

The Holo­caust also known as Shoah was a geno­cide in which more than six mil­lion Euro­pean Jew were mur­dered by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Ger­many and his WWII sup­port­ers. This rep­re­sented more than two-thirds of all Jews liv­ing in Europe. More than 1.5 mil­lion chil­dren were in the death count as the Nazis had no prob­lem killing any­one who dis­agreed with their poli­cies.

It is clear that Jews around the world “Will Never For­get ”those who were killed at the hands of Hitler and his mur­der­ous gang­sters. We lost fam­ily mem­bers who were killed by the Nazis in con­cen­tra­tion camps built to sys­tem­at­i­cally mur­der Jews/ Hitler’s ”Mas­ter Plan,” that in­cluded ex­ter­mi­nat­ing ev­ery Jewish per­son in the world. We are all very for­tu­nate that the United States and the Al­lied forces, in­clud­ing Eng­land, France and Rus­sia stopped Hitler and his part­ners, Ja­pan and Italy and their mur­der­ous and treach­er­ous ac­tions.

“These ten­ants are liv­ing in ter­ror. Af­ter see­ing the lobby first hand and spend­ing sev­eral days with these ten­ants, I can say with­out a doubt that they are rightly ter­ri­fied of a prop­erty manager who posts im­ages of hate and racism, boasts of guns in his apart­ment while hang­ing posters cel­e­brat­ing guns and the NRA, and who re­tal­i­ates against any­one who speaks out.

There is noth­ing pa­tri­otic about the names of in­fa­mous Nazis in the build­ing directory, or hav­ing a large swastika above an apart­ment door. There are clear il­le­gal­i­ties and vi­o­la­tions in­side this build­ing that ex­tend be­yond the of­fen­sive and hate-filled messages posted in the lobby and through­out the con­do­minium com­mon ar­eas.”

Since that press con­fer­ence de­nounc­ing the hate­ful and def­i­nitely anti-semitic dis­play in the pub­lic places of the condo build­ing Mayor Bill de Bla­sio has called for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the al­le­ga­tions made by those liv­ing at 47-55 39th Place Sun­ny­side, Queens.

“Due to a hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment cre­ated and con­nected to the Nazi and Con­fed­er­ate im­agery… in the lobby of the build­ing we will in­ves­ti­gate the al­le­ga­tions made by those liv­ing in the con­do­minium com­plex,” said Hol­lis P. Fitsch, Deputy Com­mis­sioner, Law En­force­ment for the Com­mis­sion on Hu­man Rights.

When a call was made to the of­fice of the New York State At­tor­ney Gen­eral Eric Sch­nei­der­man, we were told, “We can’t dis­cuss any­thing that is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

As of this writ­ing we be­lieve that condo man­age­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trea­surer of the condo board Neil Milano, the ac­cused condo manager, has been charged with cre­at­ing an

en­vi­ron­ment of in­tim­i­da­tion. In ad­di­tion, condo res­i­dents have re­ported that Mr. Milano has posted de­tailed per­sonal in­for­ma­tion about res­i­dents’ lives in the build­ing lobby.

Fur­ther charges may be added when the in­ves­ti­ga­tions be­gun by mul­ti­ple agen­cies are com­pleted.

Fol­low­ing the rally to protest the hate messages posted in their lobby Coun­cil­man Van Bramer re­ported that Milano re­moved some of the many dif­fer­ent dis­plays of hate. He had re­moved Hitler, Stalin, Mul­losini and the Con­fed­er­ate Flag but left up dozens of posters and signs of hate and ter­ror.

“Just by tak­ing down the posters is not enough. Any­one who feels that they have been dis­crim­i­nated against are urged to re­port the in­ci­dent(s) by call­ing (718)722-3131.
