Latest Cairo,NY news....Police chief arrested for..

No spam. Thanks! Thanks Chris. Just what this little messed up town needed. Isn't it bad enough that it is known as a drug town with it's junkies and dealers?! Also is the armpit ogf Greene county with it's high unemployment,lack of job opportunities,uneducated citizens just lounging in front of the tv on the government dole all day. How disgraceful. Tons of slumlords too as have reported. This used to be a nice area where tourists used to vacation in the day if you can even imagine it. You can't now as businesses don't even want to open their doors here as noone buys anything from them except drugs,cigarettes,liquor. Now if you wanted to open a pot stand and sell your plants in your yard,this would be the town for you! If you are looking to come some place to eat or vacation,skip Cairo is all can say. Even with new library,they took out a million dollar loan for with money didn't have and the new expensive hannaford coming,sorry but true. SOO glad to be gone from here as yeh used to exist here.

Craigslist post..

No spam. Thanks! Most likely will be deleted but have link here Has got my goat again as see my exlandlored akama bergen is trying to rent her property and even sell it again and it is a dump. Her mo is is to fix it rent it and then once in does nothing.Know as lived there. avoid it is all can say. Would say stay clear of Cairo in general for the same reason if renting as many slumlords here. As per post... Reply artzstuf@gmail.com [?] flag [?] : miscategorized prohibited spam best of Posted: 2013-03-24, 4:17AM EDT $500 / 500ft² - affordable,decent housing desired! (Cairo,NY) Slumlords galore here in good ol' Cairo. town does nothing to stop them. know as usedto live here. If poor,need housing that is cheap and there's the rub and doesn't exist. All find is rundown dumps as area was touristy and is no more and alot of these places abound and area is poor as little work so people aRE DESPERATE AND TAKE THEM. TOWN LOOKS Other way as in officials as think not their problem but is as depreciartes property values. even with new library and hannaford being built is still full of welfare and people don't buy so doesn't attract new business. knoqw as have one and hard to sell bread here. other slumlords here or just plain illegal ones are:perry holst and his unweatherized properties by the park,morgan krause and his eyesores on grove st.,john cassaluchi on route 84 by oneill's a dump,eva's farm,new owners still a dump,lake elissa,a dump and she makes a side business keeping your security deposits. Others don't rent to pet owners, even disabled ones with service dogs like claudia zucker and living structures and beth from there too a realtor who owns a property on grove st.. know as denied. another place on main the same thing. ugh.

got my new place...

Small 1 BR with no closets but all included for $740. a month in Albany and subsidized by HATAS,homeless traveler's aide, so my share is $ 213. a month. It is quite small but is better than motel and unweatherized dump was in before with Akama the slumlord of Cairo,NY,Greene county. Shame on you is all can sy to her for not putting me up in motel while she made repairs. Sh evicted me as know and supposedly had place fixed after I left which was disgraceful. She did me a favor as got out of cairo which is a very economically depressed and depressing area! thanks Akama for being so mean. .

Still no hot Water so am going to sue landlord for rent reduction in Small Claims..

While I appreciate your comments to my posts, I would ask firstly that they pertain to topic and are not spam in nature. Thanks!

court. Super came by today to measure hot water heater and said we would maybe have a new one Thursday, while I was pouring hot water I heated on the stove over the dishes in the sink. I am totally disgusted and sickened literally by this situation. I think it is inexcusable to expent rent when one doesn't supply the bare essentials of habitability to their tenants. what do you think? I have been looking but it is hard to find anything affordable and adequate.

No hot water at my home now for 4 days..



with no relief in sight. Broken hot water heater and the landlord and super know about it and don't seem to care..landlord is jOhn Cass on County Route 85 in Cairo,a slum lord..Was told by super first that he would price a new one and now he says he will vacuum the old one and see how it goes..but to be patient as he is moving. I said I can be patient but it seems that the landlord appears the firs to the month for the whole rent regardless of the fac that the place is up to par or not which is not fair. Front door is damaged and you have to slam it har t o shut it and the heat goes out the sides and drafty. Frig. door is equally damaged and again you need to slam it whiile the cold air goes out the bottom..The oven doesn't work and we wnet a week with no heat,hot water or cooking fuel when the pipes froze and the furnace broke too..We have no screens in the windows nor storm windows and so on...need I really say more!? Seems to be a common trend with the slumlords in beautiful down town Cairo,Ny and the building dept. does nothing.

I am officially out of my last home as of today...


I am glad to be gone. The sheriff department came out Monday to make sure I took whatever was left in the cottage out. He said if I didn't remove my damaged property from the front lawn, that I would be arrested. How nuts! Can they do that? I don't know. I need to consult with my attorney that has been helping me with my case from Legal Aid. Who should be arrested is my previous landlord who rents a property taht is but a summer cabin, year-round. How is that right?! Anyway, I was kind enough to sweep through the place ane my friend cleane the oven and I wiped down and emptied the frig. but was he happy/ No! Perry Holst, the slumlord and landlord "you call that clean? you are such a fuckin slob!" He said this right in front of the sheriff who said nothing but warned me when I was obnoxious to the landlord as I dropped his keys on the ground in front of him instead of hand them to him as I wanted no contact or to show him any respect. Another slumlord alert link is here in Albany. Another one is on craiglist for middletown,NY. Another article on Slumlords can be found here, but in this case it is from the landlord,stating why he and his wife plan on becoming slumlords after being kind landlords who rented to people or tenants who in their opinion took advantage of them including one they couldn't even evict after 6 months of trying. I'd just like to say that this sounds odd and extreme as 3 months is the maximum time allowed to evict someone.
NYC slumlord info is here. Article called 'My brother the slumlord' is here which offers another interesting slant on this issue.
Lots of info on slumlords here on the Golden Cockroach page. ha..Another post on slumlords is on Slumlord Interactive.

For more on tenant rights and evictions, read here. More info here on proper procedure for eviction. New landlord told me to remove anything by the front door as I was moving it in. He said the town would fine him. Is common to have things outside the door when moving it in on my planet which is earth. It is all removed now though. Happy house hunting and renting all!

moving agian sadly..


as land lord wants me out in 30 days as have no thing but a month to month arrangement..Is hard as I have cats and a dog as you may know if you rent also with pets. So..
Went on a wild goose chase today looking at possible apartment and home rentals and did nothing but waste our time and gas and money thanks to slum lord Phil Gellar in Hillsdale,Columbia County,NY. Phil has a cockroach infested placewiht welfare tenants hanging around doing nothing and a mess all in the front and an abismal road to come in ..He really blows and so do all slumlords like him! He gave us lousy directions even and we went through the forest and had deer and sheep walk across the road in fron of us as we passed wild turkey and horses and black angus! NUTS. Beware renters is all i can say.

As a courtesy i am listing his name and now some more past slumlords i met since renting....Morgan Kraus in CAiro, NY 40 Grove St. property. he lives in NJ. Perry HOlst at my present location another absentee landlord who resides in Locust VAlley,ny...he owns 19 and 21 VAn Buren Drive cottages in Cairo, NY..and the corner house and the one next to it also on Grove St, CAiro. He is obnoxious,money hungry and fixes noothing! He rents the cottage i have ben living in ..year round and it is unweathrized and has mold. My sinuses have been killing me and i can't brathe well, since arrival,ugh..Roger Ploof in Albany NY landlord owns property near the YMCA and is a notorious slum lord apparently who takes advantage of the predicament many poor people face in trying to find adequate affordable housing...
These people really burn me up. I am offering a service to prospective renters by telling them of these clowns. You should do the same in your town to protect your neighbor as knowledge is power and in this case, ignorance is NOT bliss.
