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.
