Manager of building with disturbing antiSemitic decor arrested on harassment charges
(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.
