Sunnyside Property Manager Found Not Guilty of Stalking, Harassment Charges: Report

Neal Milano

June 6, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

A notorious Sunnyside property manager, who made headlines for displaying images of Hitler and Stalin in the lobby of the building he once managed, was cleared of stalking and harassment charges earlier this week.

Neal Milano, 71, was found not guilty of seven counts of stalking, harassment, and attempted assault by a Queens Criminal Court judge on Monday, the New York Post reported.

Milano, who decorated the lobby at 47-55 39th Pl. with Nazi and Confederate imagery, was subject to a city and state investigation into alleged tenant harassment. He was also accused of stalking and harassing a 43-year-old woman.

The woman alleged she was grabbed by Milano multiple times between September 2016 and July 2017, which caused her alarm and annoyance, according to the police complaint. Milano’s arrest came in early September, where he was released on a $2,500 bail.

Milano reportedly said on Monday that the case should have been thrown out months ago. “There is no complaining witness and no evidence!” he said, according to the Post.

In a separate case that concluded in February, Milano and two board members of the Sunnyside condo had to resign following an investigation by the NYC Commission on Human Rights. The displays in the lobby depicting offensive materials also had to be taken down as part of the settlement.

Only communist liberals would leave flags flying from the roof that are ripped and torn.

With all the fake news surrounding this building at 47-55 39th Place one big issue is that on the roof of that building and around the building there are 18 American flags, which are ripped, torn and weather beaten. I know for a fact when the old condo board was running the building they replaced the flags every year with new ones. It is a total disgrace that this new board does not maintain those flags properly. American men and women who died for those American flags must be turning over in their graves with disgust. What is wrong with this new board? Isn’t this un-American?

I went into the building at 47-55 39th Place. I looked at all the murals on the wall. I was very impressed. They were beautiful. This is American History!

After reading all of these blogs I came to the conclusion that most of these blogs are posted by ignorant and stupid people. I did my own investigation. Milano is 70 years old, not 71. Milano was never the building manager. When the Board voted to put up the american history murals in march of 2011, Milano was not on the board. Milano’s position was to oversee the maintenance of the building and day to day operation. In the years of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Milano brought in over $300,000.00 of income to the building. Milano and the old board resigned January 10, 2018. A new board was elected February 15, 2018. The only two things that the new board did was take away the Uncle Sam statues which was totally ridiculous and unAmerican and hired a Managing Agent. On April 1, 2018 the secretary of the board resigned already. The reason was he couldn’t deal with the other 4 idiots on the board and they pushed all the work on him. That included doing the garbage everyday because there was no porter. The reason Milano was arrested was on selective prosecution and political predatory prosecution. All this was, was one big witch hunt. There was no physical evidence. The complaining witness did not show up for trial 7 times. All this was conspired by the woman on the news Lynn Calvacca who uses her maiden name. Her married name is Lynn Iannece who is married to Jerry Iannece (google their names), who was appointed a criminal Judge on May 27, 2017 and presides in Queens Criminal Court where Milano was tried. Isn’t this collusion? The ADA plus his supervisors tried every which way to have Milano convicted for something he did not do. Milano has denied these charges since he was arrested. If I was Milano, I would sue everyone who was involved.

I think this was more about tenants not being happy with lease terms they already signed and trying to create a case that will hold up in court. The tenants and media played a big role in getting him fired so kudos to them. However, people should read documents before signing them and landlords/managers should send notices when there are issues with broken lease terms or fees that are due.

Wow. You must be delusional. Had you seen the lobby of this building. Have you heard the way this psychopath speaks to people? Do you know he’s a gross racist? He harassed my latino super (around the corner from the building above) and vandalized his car with ‘build the wall’ and other pro-Trump stickers. He trespassed on numerous occasions in our building and vandalized my apartment door with the same. We caught him on camera in a Trump mask and he lifted it for a moment so we caught a glimpse of his hideous profile. I have video and pics if you’d like. I filed a police report and spoke to the councilman’s office which prompted this investigation. I’ve caught him in the act walking towards our building with the stickers and confronted him about it. He called me be the b word, the c word, told me to eff myself and said he didn’t care if I called the police. Are you actually going to deny these stories of intimidation and harassment and say it was about lease terms? What’s wrong with you?

All this means is that the complaining witness aka victim did not show up and the prosecution couldn’t go forward. It’s amazing that he chose (as the defendant) a bench trial. I know this creepy old loser was afraid of facing a jury of his peers. As the defendant he can opt for a bench trial and that’s what the old far did. The victim here is asian, she was afraid of him, afraid of the legal system (which explains why she moved out) and didn’t show up for trial. It could also be due to work, most people (not including this old fart Milano) work for a living. Just be patient, he is being investigated for embezzling funds from the board, when you steal from the Government, you LOSE!!!

Apparently you do not know the law. If you have a jury trial you have to an A misdemeanor or Felony arrest. There would be no jury in the United States that would convict Milano. This woman who filed the police report should be arrested for filing a false police report. Taco Maker, you do not know the law. You should stick with making your tacos and go back to school.

This man Milano went by the rule of law which is in the offering plan / by law book and house rules. He enforced the rules. Did you know that he lived in that building around the corner for 40 years and still has friends in that building. Do you know that all those murals posted in the lobby is in every history book in America? You cannot erase American history. The reason you wrote this ridiculous comment about Milano is because he confronted you about your dog urinating on the concrete curb under the chrome fence where there is 15 signs posted around the building to curb your dog. You should seek treatment because you are confused and delusional.

Wrong Luke, you’re way off.

Milano reportedly said on Monday that the case should have been thrown out months ago. “There is no complaining witness and no evidence!” he said, according to the Post. Funny, he never said he didn’t do it.

Roberto I believe Mr Milano would appreciate it if you’d remove the “O” from the end of your name.
