Not finding any place that will accept dogs, even

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

service ones. Blatantly say on phone that no dogs allowed,even when say,not a pet. Illegal. Can go to human rights but don't have time for that when looking, unless. They can make them give me the apt. Don't take section 8 or person with disabilities either as state working people. Others want 3 months rent up front, rent,security,last month.

Don't have that  kind of money. I just keep looking daily but it looks bleak.

Absentee, Bad Landlord Chris Messina wants me out...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

I got  hit in the side of my head last Wednesday eve, june 22, 2016 with the front door to my building have an apt. renting at. I have a concussion. Let landlord know. Asked that he fix door that hasn't shut in weeks. He sad shuts fine and would get to it in order of priority. Tells me if outside to stand or sit away from it when step is by it!

That is when called Code Enforcement and complained. Guess they called him as door was fixed the end of that day. Three business days later, i received a 60 day notice to vacate the apartment have. Retaliation? You bet! He lives in Schenectady with his mommy and daddy though is about 40. Only time comes to property is to get rent or fix apt on top floor he plans to live in at some point.

When I got injured, I had just swept stairs,halls, as got sick of seeing the dust balls as he never does them,cut the hedges,pulled weeds,painted pillar fell over last year and got two black eyes as landed on my face(told him needed to be painted and he did nothing). I am the only one who brings in the garbage pail and recyclable bins,shuts off lights and lets him know if something happens or if a repair is needed.

Yes it makes perfect sense that i should be the one being thrown out,smirk. Meanwhile i have neighbors down stairs with two pit bulls. one leaps against door daily as pass with my dog. Recently the big brute almost got through a window that had plexiglass in it. half of his body was out trying to get at my elderly dog. Told landlord who didn't return my call. Neighbors down stairs left window bent.

I called animal control as didn't want my dog bit and window was fixed. Pilot light went out in my apartment and I had no heat the first day got cold this past winter. landlord didn't come out and help me until next evening even though had been upstairs for hours. let me freeze. Place is uninsulated so can't shower in winter but have to quickly hand wash at sink.

His father said can't do repairs with me there but can when am gone and then can raise rent. Part of why wanted me out. Rent is $550 and i have section 8. My advocate and lady from Section 8 won't be back until Tuesday. Hope can work with him while I look for a place to give me time. Also would like to hear why he wants me gone.

He had said I should have asked him before put yellow paint on small step and pillars that go to ankle and knee. Also said I needed to move my bike,cart use to walk from by stairs. Yes all of a sudden such an issue. I brought other things up to apartment but that. My head hurts. Anyways, been looking but landlords don't return my calls or emails. Am worried will end up in homeless shelter again with bullying sociopaths, like last time. Made me very symptomatic.

Mayor Shawn Morse recently spoke that Cohoes was on it's way to becoming an 'all American town'. To be an 'All American', it needs to serve all it's citizens,, not just those with good jobs and some money. Some work but are poor. Sadly can't afford to live in nice housing but are decent,law abiding people who are quiet and don't cause trouble.

Due to plans for economic development, Shawn's view was things are improving For some they are. For others it's business as usual. I have sold my jewelry and gently used items at events in the past here until I was bullied by grown women and their gossip They were other vendors. Many in this town are equally mean and do the same thing, even though don't know me and all i do. listen to here say. Fear and then anger permeate this town like a cancer.

It is for these reasons, i didn't pursue getting a vendor license at city hall, but went to other events out of town,write on line, do private sale and ebay. of course not all are like this here. If you want this town to be better than it's inhabitants need an attitude adjustment. 'Idleness is the devil's play ground'. Many here have way too much time on their hands to being taken other people's inventory. Live and let live. mind my biz are great AA slogans that apply to all. I keep to self and ignore them as like gnats. Negative and do nothing with selves.

Side walks need paving and cleaning as do streets and of course lower rents on Remsen to attract business. Making Cohoes a town that wecomes all and not just WHITE people who fit the status quo, would greatly improve it and make it 'All American'. Until that day comes, the poor reputation of Cohoes will remain just as the rude,ignorant,mean people who are here.


Update since this post on housing in Cohoes. Still in this town but moved to 25 Columbia st. next to laundry mat. Bugs and bad nisy neighbors in building.for months land lord matt did nothing but get rent. typical. now one bad egg going. notice dumpsters around as have t evict tenants , gut, get new ones, repeat as don't screen. ugh. waste money, time. high recidivision rate.

Housing Discrimination Against People with Disabilities...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

I have been looking to no avail for housing. Generally the ads say that they want a working person. Does that mean seniors and people with disabilities are confined to housing through HUD that will accomodate them? I have several disabilities and have a service animal, dog. Manager said on last apt. called about, that he had to ask the landlord about the dog.

This is totally illegal.I do work part time per diem doing a variety of jobs when work is available. Sold a couple of pieces of my new sterling silver, never worn, jewelry for less than retail, today. Made $33, after debiting what spent for it. I also wrote an article, I hope to sell for an online service.  Will be at Tug boat Alley in Waterford in September.

I want to leave Cohoes as I find that downtown there is many stupid, uneducated, backward, ignorant, mean, angry, dysfunctional people. They like to take their misery out on others. I have had 13 people on a continual basis here make comments about me as walk down the street. I know I have problems but I have seeked therapy and attend support groups as I walk with God.

They are heathens who depend on selves. The are far from perfect and don't see how ridiculous and childish they appear as sit on their fat asses running their mouths, picking on people who are walking alone. I keep to self by choice as saw the way they act and want nothing to do with them. I encountered this stupidity when was a vendor at farmer's market here all summer too.

Every Friday when attended, same people talked crap about me. One was a woman in her sixties selling towels and things from foreign countries with her cronies. Event was a supposed to be handmade by crafters and artists. Since she and others, polluted the event, I sold whatever too along with my handmade jewelry and art prints.

There is plenty of abundance in the world and opportunity. There is no excuse to act this way and be jealous of another's success. I always sold there making between $50-100/week. I don't go to events here anymore as want nothing to do with them. I attend classier shows with nicer people.

Anyway..when look for housing, they don't take programs,including section 8 also which have. Only places that take it are in awful areas.  The nicer apartments want  $800 for a one bed room which is higher than can go with section 8. Says can look up to $700. So here I continue to live, hearing how my neighbors have to live near a 'lunatic' and the like.

It is unsettling. I feel like saying something but am outnumbered and best to just keep walking as do, doing what have to daily. Can't do anything unless put hands on me. So I wait and pray can get something soon.
