DHCR doubles rents, “loses” documents, withholds subsidies while colluding landlord harasses tenant down to Housing Court.  Main target: white or Jewish female single, widowed, divorced mothers.  Target develops anxiety, has nervous breakdown or goes on prescription drugs.  Landlord brings in Adult Protective Services. Moves tenant out. DHCR moves their staffers into vacated apartments. APS pays rent subsidy to cover up shortfall in DHCR. That’s the pattern.  Where’s the Federal Investigation?

Following the devious Mitchell Lama buyout of Roosevelt Island, a Quango known as DHCR or the Department of Housing and Community Renewal took over the management of Eastwood and a chair on the Board of RIOC.

Community “Renewal” is now understood to mean Community Destruction.

They have devastated the Eastwood (Roosevelt Landings) Community on Roosevelt Island.  

For years my neighbours have been walking the street in tears.  They have been driven into nervous breakdowns or to medication.

These are predominantly single mothers, widowed or divorced mothers. “Women of a certain age” to be imprecise.

DHCR more than doubled the rents.  They sent out Inspectors, some of whom completely ignored serious problems in the apartments.

Some of the problems were later corrected by HPD (Housing Preservation and Development) They missed a few “spots” but since I’ve been pressure cooked out, I’ll the termites, rusting medicine cabinets and buckling sink counters to the landlord.

They called the rent hike “Fair Market” but there was no parity between the extraordinary rents and building standards or community services.

There are no doormen, the carpets are shoddy yet Eastwood rents are now double those of the well maintained apartments on the “chic” side of the Maginot line – Main Street; the tramway is crowded and the trains unreliable and overcrowded, especially at week-ends.  The tram’s going down for six months in June, leaving us in intense hardship.

It’s also a terrible place to live if you are weak or ill, or caring for a little child or loved one alone.  Prices are high and you have the choice of one overpriced food market, one pizzeria and one coffee shop.  The buildings on the “right” side of the street pay lower rents and laundry costs, have doormen so don’t have to spend a whole day waiting for UPS or grocery delivery.  PS/IS 217 is a nightmare.  The few white children attending are subject to constant bullying and derision.  This is echoed in the racist curricula.

DHCR then started demanding documents – documents with more information than a CIA operative would require for high security clearance.

Documents were provided. DHCR “lost” them.  In my case eight copies. Assemblyman Kellner’s aide knows of this and other cases. No action taken.

Councilmember Jessica Lappin knows of this and other cases. “Can’t help you”  to me. Jessica just doesn’t like me.  It’s mutual.  Other tenants are bullied by her staff who claim to have called or spoken many times but not to the knowledge of the person called.  Lying to the constituent seems to be a job requirement in political New York.  It’s also part of a strategy to confuse the tenants and accentuate the appearance of mental incompetence.

DHCR’s strategies seem designed to induce mental incompetence.  From repeated requests for documents to an avalanche of paperwork, letters, papers, demands, “Legal Hearings” conducted by racist staff, compounded by trips to Housing Court,  different sets of documents required at each demand.  After a complaint of racial bias, a token white male sits in, unable to believe the corruption endemic among his darker colleagues or is, himself, corrupted.

Then again, to work in DHCR he’d have to be a liberal sell-out.

Since few tenants could afford the leap from $1400 per month to $3800 qm, they were told they could receive Section 8 vouchers.


From being unavailable for the previous five years, Section 8 vouchers were now hot to trot.

Except they weren’t.

According to an aide to one State Senator money was missing from DHCR

Shortly after telling me that, she lost her job.  Hold that thought.


A pattern of harassment ensued was DHCR took over.  It was called “downsizing.”

Family composition was ignored.  If DHCR or cronies wanted your apartment they were going to get it.  Allegedly DHCR families moved in as old timers were coerced out.

Housing manager Dorene Isely says that she “doesn’t know” any DHCR families in the complex.  Tenants say they do.

As said previously, DHCR lost eight complete sets of documents over a period of 18 months.

DHCR began to withhold Section 8.  Housing Management then issued eviction notices.

Housing Management’s agents Roosevelt Island Public “Safety” committed assault and battery on holdouts.

Money’s missing alright.

And DHCR are now conniving to have Adult Protective Services take over and pay up.

And if the tenants don’t agree to have their lives taken over and psyches infiltrated, Public “Safety” can then assault, batter or make them disappear.

Neighbours were crying in the streets, at losing their homes.  One woman cannot have her grandchildren over to visit; she must fly to Australia to see them.

I can’t take the flight to Oz, an I’m a heck of a lot younger than she.

DHCR’s policies are ANTI FAMILY.


Many eventually agreed to the seizure of their homes and moved to cubbyholes.

DHCR then doubled the rent on those cubby holes.

The transfer tenants found that they were not eligible for SCRIE or DRIE exemptions as despite many years in their previous apartments, their transferleases started from day one thereby denying them qualifying longevity so they were forced to panic borrow from family, dig into meagre savings (burials funds!) move or come under the career of the benevolent sounding Adult Protective Services.

APS sounds innocent enough, until you realize it’s a NYC/NYS agency, and NYC/NYS demands you surrender your dignity in exchange for crumbs.  If you’re white.  APS may choose to coerce you into accepting their services.  In other words, if the landlord doesn’t like you and you “just say no thanks,” you could find yourself labelled an “EDP,” code word for “anyone the State doesn’t like” and on the way to ‘Ward Four.’”

Why don’t they just fly the hammer and sickle and be done with it.  It’s more fun for them to watch innocents – like the other Euro Christian at H Ct this morning – beg for mercy and treat them like decent human beings sincerely doing their jobs.

Same racist runaround goes on in hospitals, banks, etc., anywhere that blacks or Hispanics have any semblance of control over the life of “whitey.”

Euro Christian, a lovely woman, self confidence destroyed  by marriage to an abusive Muslim, is non grata also.  Mothers of mixed race children are no longer a desirable demographic on the “gentrified” Roosevelt Island, and Catholics are definitely unwanted.

While I am glad the Protestant Community has been exempt from DHCR’s abuse, perhaps because of DHCR employees’ personal relationships with the former pastor, the late Rev Chapin, the selection and targeting of white Euro Catholics for aggressive “downsizing,” ie, apartment seizure is unconstitutional not to say illegal and reprehensible.

In my case, the hounding for documents already handed over, the withdrawal of subsidy, the relentless, exhausting, time consuming, career eroding visits to Housing Court or the pitbulls at the DHCR Beaver Street kangaroo court hearings  were taking a  toll on my physical health.

I had already sustained serious injuries from the kidnapping attempt on my life by Landlord’s agents RI Public “Safety” (PSD) and was unable to exercise or go for walks unaccompanied due to their relentless stalking and other harassments and the refusal of the NYPD and DA to take appropriate action on my behalf.


My ex lawyer may be the world’s worst, or most corrupt.  Either way he completely mangled my case from the get go, signing off on a stip with the landlord’s sharks, agreeing to pay money that I did not owe without consulting me even though I was in Housing Court at the time.

He promised to do an Article 78 in the Supreme Court re DHCR’s withdrawal of Section 8, but waited until mid December to do so.  

DHCR scheduled a hearing on the coldest day of the year, in the middle of the octave of Christmas, Dec 22, 2008.

This was rescheduled due to health issues, but DHCR’s hearing judge whined about that in a report. 

The Article 78 had an index number but no verifying stamp or signature from the Supreme Court from which it was allegedly issued.

I did not believe it was authentic, but in good faith went to DHCR.  The hearing officer was on the same #6 train but chided me for “arriving late.”  I recognised him from the dreadlocks.

I am out of condition since the August 16th assault, as I cannot take my daily walk on the Island, and am still recovering from injuries inflicted by the landlord so I am in no way apologetic for “arriving late.”

 I went “in good faith,” in order to confront DHCR about the lost documents, but their caseworker, Sylvia Mercado lied and said she couldn’t “retrieve my file” as it was in the Legal Department which was locked because the people were away on vacation.

How stupid is that?  A Legal Department locked on the day of a hearing.  A tenants file AWOL – try the shredder room.  The Head of the Legal Department was stepping out of the elevator as I was leaving.

Nice vacation, Ms White?

DHCR gives all information regarding my case to a hostile neighbour , Rosalind Fernandez, aka Williams, who has committed perjury against my family, harassed us to an intolerable degree, conspired with RIHM/Jerome Belson’s Thelma McIntosh – I have a tape, Thelma – to deprive me of my home, and so on. 

 McIntosh allegedly engaged in intense harassment to drive another tenant out as she wanted her apartment for herself.

Fernandez is the local co-ordinator/harasser for the Board of Elections.  She is an officer of the Democrat Club, Lenox Hill, and a member of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of Coler-Goldwater Hospital, though I’ve never actually seen her with a patient in the time that I volunteered and worked there.

She is also semi literate and the mother of a prostitute and drug addict, (RIP unfortunate daughter of a bullying mother) for whom she found work as a Security Guard on Roosevelt Island and is a highly abusive person, engaging in slander, defamation of character and assault against white, Jewish and fair Hispanic families.

She was able to do this through her connections with the Jones Family.  Jeff Jones hired and fired RI Security and RI Public Safety. Erratum: Hired.  They are never fired.

Direct NY State corruption on R Is.

Jeff Jones hired his teenage daughter to work as a tram operator at the highest rate.  She also worked as a receptionist in RIOC with full benefits and vacation, unlike others who worked for years as temps without benefits.

Mrs. Jones ran an illegal day care center on R Island and physically assaulted my four year old son, pushing him when he came innocently toward her.  R Is Security of course did nothing.

They did nothing when their teenage son, Ben Jones ran drugs and graffiti on Roosevelt Island.

They did plenty when the older Jones boy got a nice Jewish girl pregnant and Jewish girl sued for child support.

The father was arrested for practicing his lines in public and hauled into the office for “interrogation” and threatened with the “back room.”

The Jones girl has allegedly changed her name and is now Assistant Commissioner for DHCR.

DHCR HAS PUT ME INTO DEBT OF $59,000.*  I am trapped on Roosevelt Island, with the appearances of a bad tenant although the Management now says I’m a “pillar of the community,” a “good tenant” and they “don’t want to lose me.”

Too little, too late.  I want to lose them and either move to Europe or to the USA.

The Commie gulag of Roosevelt Island has become too dangerous for straight, white, female Catholics. In truth, for any single, widowed, divorced woman and despite parks and playgrounds that appear attractive, it lacks bona fide amenities and choices, and is an all round inconvenient “schlepp” city.

I have been denied Crime Victims’ Services, Medical Support and Investigation, have lost momentum in my work, credit, income, etc.  I cannot work, start anything, reclaim moneys lost, go forward in my career, produce my dramatic works or develop my formulae.

*Another white female Catholic has another fabricated debt of  $42,000.  She’s terrified and walking right into the Adult Protective Services net.

Ward Four, anyone?  Or is it “Soylent Green” time?
