Manager of build­ing with dis­turb­ing an­ti­Semitic decor ar­rested on ha­rass­ment charges

The Jewish Voice - - NEWS IN REVIEW -

(VIN) A Queens prop­erty manager who al­legedly dec­o­rated the lobby of a Queens con­do­minium build­ing with im­ages of Hitler, guns and con­fed­er­ate sym­bols is un­der ar­rest for al­legedly ha­rass­ing a ten­ant.

Po­lice said that 70-year-old Neal Milano re­port­edly vic­tim­ized a fel­low ten­ant at 47-55 39th Place in Sun­ny­side over a 10-month pe­riod start­ing in Septem­ber 2016. Milano is said to have fol­lowed the 43-year-old woman nu­mer­ous times, yelling ob­scen­i­ties at her and grab­bing her by the arm and neck and pulling her on at least two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions.

Milano, who sports a Hitler-like mous­tache, was ap­pre­hended by po­lice to­day at 2:20 PM and charged with stalk­ing and ha­rass­ment. While he has no prior ar­rests, Milano is no stranger to the au­thor­i­ties and has been the sub­ject of nu­mer­ous com­plaints by res­i­dents of the Sun­ny­side con­do­minium who say that he has re­peat­edly threat­ened them and boasted of hav­ing guns.

Res­i­dents told NY1 (http:// bit.ly/2vDBuxc) that Milano, head of the con­do­minium’s board, has im­posed ab­surd reg­u­la­tions on ten­ants in­clud­ing a $200 fine for im­prop­erly fold­ing card­board for re­cy­cling. Milano has also re­port­edly posted pri­vate de­tails of res­i­dents’ lives in pub­licly dis­played no­tices and has re­quired res­i­dents to ob­tain writ­ten per­mis­sion in or­der to host overnight guests, a priv­i­lege that comes with a $100 price tag.

Ac­cord­ing to the NYPD, to­day’s ar­rest is com­pletely un­re­lated to three sep­a­rate in­ves­ti­ga­tions by the city’s hu­man rights com­mis­sion, the state at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice and the NYPD into whether Milano’s ac­tions have cre­ated a hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment for res­i­dents.
