ST NICKS ALLIANCE PROPERTY MANAGER HAYDEE CORDERO GETS 3 YR PROBATION FOR HEROIN RING

Image
In another travesty of justice, St Nicks Alliance Property Manager Haydee Cordero, who was fired the day after she was arrested in a huge Heroin drug bust all over Brooklyn, just got sentenced to 3 years probation.

In e-mails to Michael Rochford and convicted felon St Nicks President Joseph Robles, I told them about the drugs in their buildings. They not only ignored, they went after me with a passion. They sent St Nicks Alliance employees to pound on my door, to harasses me and to threaten me. They forged my leases, they threatened me with eviction and they continued to allow their tenants to stand outside my window and yell "Move white boys Move" and "We are getting the faggots out".  They continued to allow their tenants to smoke crack and do drugs right outside my window and did nothing. When I told Rochford and Felon Robles about the drugs, they told me I could be sued for slander. Now what do you felons think about what I said now?  How many people died beca…

HULU SUBSCRIPTION IS JUST NOT WORTH HAVING

Image
NETFLIX IS BETTER THAN HULU


I had to cancel my Hulu Subscription. I liked Hulu. I was comfortable with it. I also have Netflixand other services. But what Hulu has done this week to it's customers is so horrible, I just decided the hell with a company who operates this way.

They changed the format this week. Nothing worked. I called Hulu, waited over 45 minutes to speak to someone. When I finally got a representative, I told her the problem and what she said next was a horror.

This incompetent Hulu customer service agent said, "You know, Hulu is a subscription service and I could just cancel". I was flabbergasted. Here I was calling in a complaint and she was telling me to cancel. I asked for a Supervisor. Waited, waited, a hour goes by and nothing. I hung up. I tried several times that night. Same thing. We are experiencing a higher caller volume, your wait would be approx 15 to 30 min. Then after some sales pitch, the recorder comes on and says 35-45 minutes. I just ha…

JEAN SHAFIROFF IS COVER FEATURE IN N.Y. LIFESTYLES

Image
Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was profiled this month in New York Lifestyles Magazine. 


Jean Shafiroff is quick to downplay her accomplishments as a philanthropist, public speaker, and author. But the fact is that she has earned many honors for her efforts as a humanitarian. Even with that fact in mind, she will swiftly tell you that it was only through hard work and teamwork that she is able to fundraise and chair several charity events each year as she does. Her book, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give (Hatherleigh Press), gathers her years of expertise into a guide on how to be a philanthropist through time, knowledge, and available financial resources. She brings awareness to notable charitable causes, including the ones that she has devoted her life to women’s rights, animal rights, and children’s welfare.



Shafiroff sits on the boards of the New York City Mission Society, New York Women’s Foundation, French Heritage Society, Couture Council (Museum of t…

ICON BETTE MIDLER TWEETS AT NUTCASE DONALD TRUMP

Image
 **** FAKE NEWS WITH A FAKE PRESIDENT
Story By: James Edstrom ****

Our favorite star, Bette Midler knows how to get Donald Trump's attention with her tweets. Not only are they right on the money, she adds a comic touch to them, showing just how stupid Donald Trump really is.

11h11 hours ago For Trump tweets, “We're building our future w/American hands, US labor, US iron, aluminum & steel.” In a Chinese tie, no doubt.

Sep 5 I have a week off; I'm pooped. I don't want to do anything but sit & stare at a wall. Sadly, has totally ruined walls for me.


Look, Bette is a New York City Icon. I have photographed her many times over the years. Always so sweet, always has something to say. Being New Yorker's, we both have met Donald Trump many many times. He always was a asshole. Sorry, sad but true. His kids are great, but that is because they were raised by Ivana and his ot…
