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

Property Manager Haydee Cordero Worked For St Nicks Alliance





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 because St Nicks Alliance refused to listen to me.


Haydee Cordero and her sons and many others were dealing huge amounts of Heroin in buildings all over Brooklyn. To show you the power St Nicks Alliance has in Brooklyn in the media and with the politicians, not one media outlet reported that Haydee Cordero was the property manager for St Nicks Alliance Buildings.  But as convicted felons do, they covered it all up. But these are facts. St Nicks Alliance President Joseph Robles is a convicted felon as is his father who ran the operation before him. The politicians continue to give this slumlord who claims to fight slumlords a free pass and multi million contracts. 


St Nicks Alliance will have protests against slumlords but the reality is they are also slumlords. They have everyone fooled. They have their public relations people paint a picture of St Nicks Alliance as the savior to Williamsburg, but the reality is they abuse people with AIDS, they own rat and drug infested buildings, the same as every other slumlord in Brooklyn. They live off the Taxpayer dollar and have everyone fooled. But my trial will fix this.


Michael Rochford and Convicted Felon Joseph Robles were told about the drug operations in not only my building, but in their other building across the street. We tend to wonder why. When the new camera systems were put in, they could see for themselves the drug operations. They not only ignored my complaints, but by ignoring me, they protected the drug dealers.



The sad thing is I wonder how many lives were lost because no one would listen to me. How many people died from this Heroin ring that St Nicks Alliance Property Manager Haydee Cordero was involved with. And we also wonder how she only got 3 years probation. But the answer to that is, she turned people in, she ratted people out. Imagine that, 3 years probation for money laundering for a Heroin ring. We also wonder what strings were pulled to help her. 



Next week we tell the story on how St Nicks Alliance destroyed Video evidence and e-mails in my Supreme Court Case, even after a evidence hold was put in place. This is what felons do. And we will post some of our own videos on You Tube. We are going to trial.

THE CONVICTED FELONS BEHIND ST NICKS ALLIANCE

****
ST NICKS ALLIANCE HIDES EVIDENCE AND REFUSES TO COMPLY WITH COURT DEMANDS

Story By: James Edstrom
****


James Edstrom Outside 19 Maujer Street



As most of my readers know, I have been fighting St Nicks Alliance for abusing my son and I when we lived in their building in Williamsburg, 19 Maujer Street. For those of you who do not know the story, St Nicks Alliance is run by convicted felons who live off city contracts. They are paid to give affordable housing to people with AIDS. They are paid to provide services which they do not provide, yet the city of New York refuses to take away the contracts.


St Nicks Alliance gets Senior contracts, AIDS Contracts, Youth Contracts and the list goes on and on. Joseph Robles the President of St Nicks Alliance also owns Knights Collision Experts, which also lives off the back of city taxpayers with many city contracts. He is a convicted felon!


CONVICTED FELONS JOSEPH ROBLES SR. AND JOSEPH ROBLES JR.



FROM THE NY POST: Brooklyn-based Knights Collision Experts – which already holds exclusive city towing rights for the FDR and Harlem River Drive – was poised to take over million-dollar permits for Staten Island highways and the Grand Central Parkway in Queens, effective today.


But in a hearing Friday in Staten Island Supreme Court, Justice Philip Minardo froze the award upon learning that the company’s owners, Joseph Robles and his son, also named Joseph, were convicted of federal fraud charges in 1991 and that the younger Robles was arrested again in 2006 on a similar charge. Read the whole story from several links highlighted above.




Findings included the fraud conviction of Joseph Robles Jr., who chairs the board of St. Nicks Alliance of Brooklyn and was hit with five years’ probation and a $10,000 fine for a 1991 insurance scam tied to his family-owned business, Knights Collision Expert Repairs.

Robles “was arrested again in 2000 and 2006 on similar charges”.


The story did not mention that his father Joseph Robles Sr. who used to run St Nicks Alliance was also convicted and served time in jail.




NY TIMES: 25 Charged in Heroin Trafficking Ring in Brooklyn. 


Haydee Cordero, 46, offered “significant assistance,” Mr. Thompson said, including laundering money by depositing the proceeds from the drug sales into her bank account. The lawyer for Ms. Cordero, Calvin Simons, declined to comment.

Click the link above to read the Times Story. But in e mails From me to St Nicks Alliance Michael Rochford, Joseph Robles and Frank Lang, I complained about the drug operations in the building I lived in and the other building they owned across the street. The result was calling me into the city for a eviction, upgrading the harassment from St Nicks Alliance employees and tenants at 19 Maujer Street.


ST NICK ALLIANCE HIDES EVIDENCE


 There is a time limit for turning over e mails and videos as well as all evidence. St Nicks Alliance has ignored all time limits. When we go back to court for compliance hearings, they agree to turn over the documents and then we never get them. They go back with another excuse, they get more time and we still never get anything.


FELONS ST NICKS ALLIANCE HIRES BIGGEST LAW FIRM GORDON REES SCULLY MANSUKHANI TO DEFEND THEIR FRAUD



Misty Marris from this law firm knows how to play the courts. She comes to court, promises to provide witnesses that she knows does not even work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, then comes back and says she can not provide them, they do not work for them anymore. This happened with Ivette Alerte. She knew Miss Alerte did not work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, depositions taken before the promise from her clients showed she knew Miss Alerte did not work for St Nicks Alliance anymore, they testified to this. Yet she promised the court she would provide her and the court gives them more time, and wham, we get no deposition and she cries to the court that she was unable to get Miss Alerte as she was no longer employed by St Nicks Alliance. She knew this and once again the court let her get away with this. Dozens of e mails ignored asking over the months about depositions, e mails not turned over, videos not turned over, security books and more. It's is now almost 4 years and they refuse to turn over the evidence.



Miss Marris then promises another witness from St Nicks Alliance. The court gives her more time. Miss Marris ignores my lawyers e mails and phone calls trying to set a date. Months and months go by and now time is almost over till our next compliance hearing. Still no e mails, no videos, no security books turned over as required by law. And no depositions as required by the court agreement.



Misty Marris & St Nicks Alliance claimed the security company, Guardian is the only one who has access to the security books and the video cameras. Guardian ignored many subpoenas. Finally they show up. They give us a security book that was not even the years we lived there, and they say the only one who has access to security footage is St Nicks Alliance. They said what St Nicks Alliance was saying about not having access to footage was a lie. When I lived there St Nicks Alliance put in a high end security system, that could only be accessed online at a secure website. They refuse to give us passwords and access to pull out the videos of all the tenants harassing us day and night. We have been fighting for this for almost 4 years now.  The videos will show the drug dealing in the building, the harassment through our windows and St Nicks knows this. St Nicks Alliance's Frank Lang also is guilty of perjury, he said at depositions that he had no access to the security cameras. Are you kidding me Frank Lang? You are one of the bosses and you can not access your own cameras? I have a e mail exchange between you and Michael Rochford talking about the cameras. For 4 years you lied to the court saying only your security company had access, now they tell us it's only you. Turn over the evidence Mr Lang!

This must mean Miss Cordero sold out her partners in crime. I have been told she has been back and forth to Puerto Rico. This would mean she is in witness protection or some kind of deal was made. You do not let someone who is charged with money laundering for a Heroin Cartel permission to travel unless she was providing information to arrest other people. How many people died from this drug operation and she is getting 3 years probation?  This woman was told in e mails from me about drugs in the building as were her bosses at St Nicks Alliance. They ignored. Now we know why!

They are required to provide this information. They have not. Now 3 months. Well past the time limit. They refuse to comply with just about everything, yet these felons keep getting city one city contract after another. 


OUR DEMANDS WERE CLEAR FROM THE START OF THE CASE


Turn over all videos:  They refuse


Turn over all security books: They refuse


Turn over e mails between Brooklyn President Marty Moskowitz and Michael Rochford: They refuse


Give Us Michael Rochford and Joseph Robles for deposition: They refuse. (Hiding something?)


We asked them for copies of my deposition several times. They ignored. We finally had to contact the court reporter to get them. 


Almost every e mail and phone call from my lawyer is ignored by Gordon Rees. 


CASE HAS COST OVER 130 THOUSAND DOLLARS


I am in the hole for around 130 thousand dollars. This is from them not complying with just about anything. This is for not showing up for depositions, this is for motion after motion, this is the cost of Gordon Rees playing games with the court. It is not fair. Most of my expenses are from their games. Frank Lang testified their lawyers expenses were partially covered by their insurance. We are sure at least some of their defense is coming out of taxpayer monies from one of their huge contracts.


It is not fair that justice has to be like this. The big company with the big checkbook should not be able to manipulate the courts with a big law firm like Gordon Rees. All I want is my day in court. It will cost, it will take time, but after pushing me so far when all I ever wanted was St Nicks Alliance to do the right thing, we will see them at trial. The media and the city will see what this company really is. And the city will keep giving them contracts till I prove my case in court. How can this city give convicted felons millions of dollars in contracts? We will find out!

MAYOR USES NYPD HELICOPTER TO GET AROUND

NYPD HELICOPTER USED BY MAYOR



I am very perplexed why Mayor de Blasio would use a New York City Police Department Helicopter at taxpayer expense to get around. Early evening the police department cleared Hunter's Point South Park with no explanation as to why.


Imagine my surprise when a NYPD Helicopter landed in the park and Mayor de Blasio got out and headed to a two limo entourage.  With police guarding the entrance to the park and two limos for the Mayor, I am very surprised we use city resources like this, all at taxpayer expense.


Mayor In White Shirt Heading To Limos




 Maybe I am not surprised, I have been trying to get the city to stop a two and a half billion fraud from the city's HRA Hasa system against people with AIDS, and no one will listen. With Lawsuits in Federal Court and Lawsuits in Supreme Court against the City and one of their landlords St Nicks Alliance they give contracts too, they just love to waste money.


When will the money train end or should I say the helicopter ride.

GAY CIVIL RIGHTS ARE THE NEW IGNORED RIGHTS

****
A ACTIVIST'S VIEWPOINT

Story By: James Edstrom
****


Omar Mateen




Gay rights are the new ignored rights, just like when African Americans got equal rights many years ago and were ignored, the same thing is happening to the gay movement. Gays are the new ignored minority.



The massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub early yesterday has been described as a "domestic terror incident," with at least 50 dead and 53 injured, officials said, making it the worst mass shooting in U.S. history and the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil since the events of Sept. 11, 2001.



The shooter has been identified by officials as Omar Mateen of St. Lucie County, Florida, a U.S.-born citizen with Afghani parents. After the shooting began, he called 911 to pledge his allegiance to ISIS, according to law enforcement officials.



ISIS supporters have cheered the massacre online and an ISIS communique referred to the shooter as an ISIS "fighter," but there’s no evidence that ISIS directed or had prior knowledge of the attack, terrorism observers told ABC News.



EVEN NEW YORK CITY IGNORES GAY RIGHTS


My big war right now is the war between myself and the City Of New York along with the landlord St Nicks Alliance that the city has allowed to practice and operate ANTI-AIDS and ANTI-GAY housing policies.


While a regular person can go to the city for help if they are sick, the same is not true with someone sick with AIDS. A regular person with Cancer or diabetes can go to NYC for housing help and there are no strings attached. A person with AIDS can go to the city for help with housing and medicine and the city and the landlords will go out of their way to break the laws of The Americans With Disabilities Act, Fair Housing Act and Rent Laws, and they do not even blink a eye when doing so.


The Mayor and the members of New York's City Council can preach and preach that Gays are equal, My lawsuits will prove another thing.


When you are sick with AIDS, you are required to have caseworkers even know you do not want the services and besides the point, In the case of St Nicks Alliance, there are no services anyway, yet you are forced to meet with these useless caseworkers and if you don't, the city will OK a eviction. To top it off, St Nicks Alliance is paid for services that are not rendered. St Nicks Alliance also was allowed to forge my leases and when a city employee told her bosses that she was at the lease signing and they were forged, the city refused to act. We proved abuse by St Nicks Tenants and employees and we proved we were living with mice and rats. The city did nothing but rule against us. The courts will rule against them next!


This is not just St Nicks Alliance. It is a assortment of landlords that have found a cash cow with sick people with AIDS. It's the two and a half Billion Fraud in New York City and city officials just do not care. Going in front of the City Council to tell them about the abuses and I was ignored by Councilman Steven Levin and Corey Johnson, two people who claim they are AIDS activists.


Even with a Supreme Court Lawsuit and a Federal Lawsuit against St Nicks Alliance and The City Of New York, nothing is done to stop the abuses. In the Supreme Court Case, St Nicks Alliance employees ignore subpoenas, ignore discovery demands and ignore the law of the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court lets them get away with it. St Nicks Lawyers ignore e-mails, ignore phone calls from my lawyers and only show up when we file a motion to default the case in our favor. Then the court gives them more time to comply and they never do. Almost two years now and we have gone almost no where. It is also interesting to note that St Nicks Alliance in in violation of the city contract, but the city refuses to even address the issue. The city keeps paying for services that are not rendered. The city keeps paying for St Nicks Alliance to abuse people with AIDS.


LAWS THAT ST NICKS ALLIANCE BREAKS WITH CITY'S BLESSING


 Keep in mind, the below rules are against rent stabilization laws, The Americans With Disability Act and Federal Housing Laws among other laws.  St Nicks Alliance breaks all these rules with New York City's blessing. With St Nicks Alliance, it's all about the money no matter who they abuse, no matter what laws they break.


 Forced visits from caseworkers


Forced to turn over medical records


No dogs or cats, even know everyone in the building has them. Cats would have come in handy in St Nicks Alliance's rat infested building.


Not allowed to have a third chain lock, not allowed to hang pictures on wall, not allowed to paint apartment, not allowed to carpet. Not allowed to make copy of apartment keys. This is just a sample that by law every tenant is allowed to do, but if you are GAY & HIV positive, you can not have these simple rights. You do have these rights, but St Nicks Alliance will break the law to make sure you comply. Complain, they go to the city for a eviction. And the city will back them up.


NYC HAS PAID OFF GAY RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS
 


There is not much help anymore for Gays, lesbians, Transgenders and People With AIDS. The organizations that used to battle for us are now being paid off by grants from the city. Years ago we could go for help and these organizations would fight the city and in some cases take the city to court. They went after bad landlords, but now with the city bribing these organizations with grants, there is little to no help anymore. If our rights are being violated by the city or these landlords, these organizations refuse to help. They will not bite the hand that feeds them. The city is guilty of breaking RICO Laws as well as so many others. We will prove this in court.

 

So GAY Is The new BLACK. It all looks good on paper just like the black civil rights movement did, but our rights are just not there. The shooting is very tragic, but it's just the beginning until the government enforces the laws that they brag about. Our Council Members Steven Levin and Corey Johnson put on a good show, but they have ignored a two and a half billion dollar fraud that only benefit their landlord friends and not people with AIDS. I told them at a city council hearing and they ignored.

R&B REALITY STAR TEREZ EVICTS AIDS SUFFERER

Courtney Crawford Homeless With Dog





Yesterday R&B Divas star Terry Thorpe AKA Terez, evicted Courtney Crawford who is suffering from AIDS. The guy is now living on the street with his dog.


Almost two years ago I filed a lawsuit against Terez's company St Nicks Alliance. I am also suffering from AIDS. Their tenants spent day and night harassing my son and I, and Terez would do nothing to stop it. Terez and St Nicks Alliance staff instead started harassing me. We lived with mice and rats and Terez and her partner in crime Michelle Sainsbury did nothing. We were being tortured day and night by tenants and by the staff from St Nicks Alliance and they would not stop.


We proved to the city that either Terez or her employees forged our leases and the city refused to do anything. They left me no choice but to file a Supreme Court Lawsuit.

Disgusting Terez Thorpe




TEREZ AND ST NICKS ALLIANCE ALLOWED DRUG DEALING


I complained about the drug dealing in the building. I told St Nicks Alliance in so many e-mails. All Terez and her partner at St Nicks Alliance Michelle Sainsbury would say was, I should be careful about my accusations. They called me a liar. Now St Nicks Building manager Haydee Cordero has been arrested for Money Laundering for a heroin cartel in Brooklyn. St Nicks Alliance owns or operates around 80 buildings in Brooklyn. They protected Ms. Cordero. How will you answer this Terez?

Passed Out In Hallway Michelle Sainsbury



The photo above is Michelle Sainsbury who is in charge of scatter site housing for people with AIDS. The photo was taken by a former employee of St Nicks Alliance. Ms. Sainsbury is spotted often in bars on Flatbush Avenue. The photo shows Ms. Sainsbury passed out in some hallway after a night of drinking. Is this a person who should be appointed Executive Director, in charge of watching over sick people with AIDS? Well Terez and St Nicks Alliance think so.


TEREZ DID NOT EVEN THINK TWICE ABOUT THROWING PERSON WITH AIDS ON THE STREET WITH HIS DOG


Courtney Crawford is now on the streets of NYC with his dog. E mails to Daniel Tietz from the HRA and to the housing staff at the HRA produced no help. They not only allowed him to be evicted by this horrible landlord, they refuse to take away the city contract which costs millions a year. With Federal and Supreme Court Lawsuits, the HRA still refuses to act.


The city contract clearly states, any landlord-provider who violates the Americans With Disabilities Act or violates Federal, state or housing laws, will have the contract revoked. We proved St Nicks Alliance violates these laws and the city did nothing. We proved we lived with mice and rats and the city did nothing. We proved St Nicks Alliance forged our leases and the city did nothing.


TEREZ AND ST NICKS ALLIANCE LIVE OFF THE BACKS OF PEOPLE WITH AIDS


Terez and St Nicks Alliance are paid to help people with AIDS. Instead they abuse them, they ignore the laws, all in the name of profit. St Nicks not only makes millions from people with AIDS, they make untold amounts of money from Section 8 and all other kinds of housing. The taxpayers foot this bill and even after a Supreme Court lawsuit and Federal lawsuits the city still allows them to operate.


TEREZ PLAYS A NICE PERSON ON TV BUT IN REALITY SHE IS EVIL


On television Terez and her wife Monifah play wonderful people. Terez plays the part of the person who helps people with AIDS, but the reality is she abuses them. She forces them to follow rules that are illegal. She does not allow them to paint their apartments, she won't allow them to have a dog, which every other regular tenant has, she won't allow you to hang pictures on the wall. Dozens of rules that other tenants don't have.


The American With Disabilities Act clearly states persons with disabilities must have equal or better housing. Terez and St Nicks Alliance break this law without even blinking a eye. They think they are above the law. They throw things in leases which no one has to follow except the person with AIDS.


FEDERAL LAWSUIT ENDORSED BY ACT UP


The Federal lawsuit has now been endorsed by ACT UP. Flyers will now be posted everywhere asking people being abused by St Nicks Alliance or other landlords to join the lawsuits. 


ST NICKS ALLIANCE HIDES EVIDENCE


When My story of my lawsuit hit the NY Daily News, St Nicks Alliance sent their now jailed building manager Haydee Cordero to remove the hard drives from the camera system. She also removed the security books. Almost two years now we have been fighting for them to turn over e-mails, security books, videos and so much more. St Nicks Alliance Refuses to follow the laws. If you have nothing to hide, you don't act like this.


TEREZ & ST NICKS ALLIANCE BREAK HIPAA LAWS 



During the eviction, Terez videotaped Mr. Crawford. This is a violation of the law and Mr. Crawfords privacy. Other violations included letters meant for other clients being mailed to Mr. Crawford with such charges against the person as violating caseworkers cell phone privacy. How the hell can you violate a caseworkers cellphone privacy? That did not matter to the HRA, any and all outlandish charges the HRA accepts. 


DOZENS OF E MAILS TO ST NICKS ABOUT ABUSES IGNORED


Dozens of e mails to St Nicks heads Michael Rochford and Joseph K. Robles about the conduct of their employees were ignored. Proven allegations to them were met with more abuse from their employees. Endless phone calls and e mails only resulted in St Nicks Alliance abusing me and Mr. Crawford more. St Nicks Alliance lives off the taxpayers. The City State and federal government pays them for services that are not rendered. Proven to the city that no services are provided resulted in no action. I will see you all in court.

CHARLIE SHEEN CAN AFFORD HIS HIV MEDICINES

 ****
 THE WAR AGAINST PEOPLE WITH HIV-AIDS

Story By: James Edstrom
****
Charlie Sheen And James Edstrom



First of all, Charlie Sheen is a very nice guy. I met him a couple of times, he is sweet, caring and funny. I applaud him for telling the world about his status, he should have done it sooner though and not been blackmailed by these ruthless people.


Being diagnosed with HIV is very hard. You are in shock, you think your going to die and you start making plans to die. But even worse is the abuse you receive from the city of New York trying to find a way to stay in a home and to pay for your medicine to stay alive.


When I was told I had full blown AIDS in 2001, days after September 11th, my whole life changed. I was so sick, I could not pay my rent, I could not afford my medicine and having HIV was still not accepted. My doctors sent me to the City's HRA HASA HIV unit which in turn gave me even more horror. They made promises they never kept, they abused me till I finally had it and called my high powered politician friends who contacted the commissioner. But this was just the beginning, the beginning of years of abuse, the beginning of years of being threatened with homelessness by the HRA and their corrupt landlords, being forced to live with mice and rats and when I complained, the abuse got worse.


The last few years I was living on Maujer Street owned by St Nicks Alliance. Right away my son and I were being abused by tenants and caseworkers from St Nicks, because I had AIDS. The more I complained, the more they abused me. Our life was threatened by St Nicks tenants, St Nicks Alliance employees were always threatening us with eviction if we did not do what they told us too. Here we were living in a rent stabilized apartment where we paid our rent, and we had no rights.


We went to the city and complained. They refused to do anything. Here we were, me with full blown AIDS and my son who I adopted and took off the streets. We proved to the city that we were living with mice and rats, we proved tenants were abusing us and we proved the landlord St Nicks Alliance forged our lease agreements. The city still ruled against us. Their own employees who were at the lease signing testified that they were at the lease signing and we never agreed to caseworkers and other things and the leases were forged, yet the city ruled against us.


Rent laws are clear and so is the Americans With Disability Act. Persons with disabilities must have equal or better housing. St Nicks Alliance refused to abide by the law and the HRA refused to enforce their contract with St Nicks Alliance which states that they must comply with all ADA laws. After endless e mails to the Commish, the Deputy Commish, phone conversations with them both and endless e mails to HRA HASA personal, I was forced to file in Supreme Court and to go public that I had AIDS in the New York Daily News.


I complained about the mice and rats, no one did anything. St Nicks Alliance has violations going back years for mice and rats, yet they did nothing. I was bitten in my bed one night. Still they did nothing. Tenants were outside my windows yelling move white boys move and we have to get the AIDS faggots out, the city did nothing and St Nicks Alliance did nothing. I complained about the drug dealing in the building. St Nicks Alliance told me I should be careful at what I say, I could be sued for slander. They refused to do anything. But lo and behold, St Nicks Property Manager Haydee Cordero was recently arrested for money laundering for a Heroin drug cartel. St Nicks Alliance owns or operates around 80 buildings in the Brooklyn area. I told them about the drug dealing and they ignored. They even refused to give video to the police department when I witnessed a deal in our lobby.


When I filed the lawsuit, St Nicks employees came to the building and took the hard drive on the security system. They also took the security reports. St Nicks Alliance refuses to turn them over to us as required by law. There are also hundreds of e mails they refuse to turn over, they gave us around ten. In them St Nicks employees Michael Rochford and Frank Lang joke about the mice and rats. Replys are blocked out. They refuse to comply with the law. Another lawsuit was filed in Federal Court last week by Courtney Crawford. He is being abused by St Nicks Alliance employees and the same tenants in the building who abused us. St Nicks Alliance is trying to evict Mr. Crawford because he has a dog, something everyone in the building has, but St Nicks Alliance thinks it's right for them to discriminate against people with AIDS.


Still the HRA refuses to step in and pull the contract from St Nicks Alliance. Lawsuits in Supreme Court, Lawsuits in Federal Court, and the city continues to allow this alleged Not-For_Profit to get city contracts. 


The abuses have gone on for so many years in the city's HRA-HASA system with these providers and it has to stop. Thousands of people are being abused in this system that costs a Billion A Year to the taxpayers, A system that abuses people with AIDS who need housing and most of all, need their medicine. My Medicine costs over three thousand a month. Someone like Charlie Sheen can afford this, but most people can't and end up very sick and even die. 


I am out of this fake provider system and out of abusive St Nicks Alliance. My lawyer bills are through the roof and since St Nicks Alliance refuses to follow the law and turn over videos, security books and e mails, we are spending so much money on motions trying to get them. What is St Nicks Alliance scared of? I'll tell you, they are abusing people with AIDS, they are breaking several laws, some of them Federal Laws and they run a corrupt operation that provides no services to anyone with AIDS. They live off the taxpayers of New York City and the Federal Government. Most of all, they live off the sick people who suffer with AIDS. Persons with AIDS are trying to stay alive and St Nicks Alliance is profiting off them.


I am glad Charlie Sheen came out for having HIV. I understand what he was going through being blackmailed and getting to courage to stand up and fight and to tell the public he has HIV. I had to do it last year in the NY Daily News. It was not easy, but St Nicks Alliance and the HRA left me no option but to admit I was sick and fight. I hope Charlie continues fighting for the rights for people with HIV. I hipe he give me a call.

ST NICKS ALLIANCE PROPERTY MANAGER ARRESTED

 ****
ST NICKS ALLIANCE PROPERTY MANAGER HAYDEE CORDERO INDICTED ON MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG OPERATION
**** 


Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson Points To Photos Of Haydee Cordero




I am not going to get into a huge thing here. As most of you know I am in a lawsuit against St Nicks Alliance for breaking ADA Laws, Housing laws and abusing me and my son and I were forced to move. You can read more about it here in the New York Daily News.



St Nicks Alliance defended their tenants who spent 2 and a half years outside my window yelling move white boys move, we are getting the faggots out and allowed us to live with mice and rats. It never ended. Their tenants jumped my son in the lobby, they tried to break into our apartment and they robbed us from our ground floor window. The more we complained to St Nicks Alliance, all the way up the ladder, the more abuse we got. Never ended. 


I complained about drug dealers and drug deals in my building. They did nothing. I complained to Haydee Cordero who was building manager about the drugs. When she did nothing I complained to Michael Rochford the big boss at St Nicks Alliance and he did nothing. I complained to Frank Lang who runs the buildings and he did nothing. I complained to Michelle Sainsbury a director at St Nicks Alliance and she did nothing. The police asked for video footage of a drug deal I witnessed in the lobby and St Nicks Alliance refused to give it to them.


The more I complained the more St Nicks Alliance harassed me. They pounded on my door threatening me with eviction, they dragged me into a meeting with the city. I proved St Nicks Alliance forged my leases. No one would do anything. Now we are in court.


Interesting how the media did not pick up on how recently busted Haydee Cordero who was arrested allegedly money laundering for her sons Heroin operation in buildings all over Brooklyn. Haydee Cordero handled buildings for St Nicks Alliance. She was employed by them. They own or operate 80 buildings all over Brooklyn. Not one media outlet picked up on this, even the ones I tipped off. I have so many e mails to Haydee and her bosses at St Nicks Alliance complaining about the drug deals. They did nothing and now we know why. The crew sold more than 25,000 glassine envelopes a month and at $10-per-bag, which has a street value of over $1.5 million. St Nicks Alliance was told by me and ignored. How many people died? How many? You can read the NY Times Story here


It will all come out in Supreme Court. St Nicks Alliance abuses people with AIDS. St Nicks allows drug dealers even after they are told about them. I wonder how many people died as a result of this Heroin ring. I wonder how much blood is on St Nicks Alliances hands? When caught, they control the media so they are not mentioned. Well no more!

DON'T ASK ME TO FIGHT FOR YOU AGAINST RACISM

****
RACIST ST. NICKS ALLIANCE

Story By: James Edstrom
****

Friendly St Nicks Alliance Neighbors




No one ask and post on my boards or do stories on their complaints about racism against African Americans and Hispanics. Do not ask me to do stories supporting your cause anymore.


St Nicks Tenant
For years I do stories fighting racism and when I tell all my African American and Hispanic friends that I am being harassed, threatened by the Hispanic and African Americans in St. Nicks Alliance building I moved into in Williamsburg, they act like I am nuts. Since day one, the first hours we moved in here we were robbed, threatened, called white trash and everything else in the book. I complain to the landlord who is mostly African American And Hispanic and they do nothing. My kid was jumped in the lobby, they tried to smash their way into our apartment and nothing. They opened our ground floor apartment stole our blinds, threw drinks into our apartment and nothing. They are outside out windows yelling white trash, faggots and nothing. Since Sat a African American woman from this building has been yelling MOVE WHITE BOYS outside our windows. St Nicks Alliance does nothing. A Hispanic guy from this building has been outside our windows trying to get people to sign a petition to get us out. We hear him at all hours, we have to get rid of these white people.


We call the police and meet with the police, they think racism does not exist against whites. We post on our facebook pages this weekend about this woman yelling move white boys move and not one comment from my African American and Hispanic friends I have known for years. Not one ounce of support from people I have supported for years. This African American woman who I have known for 2 years now, Barbara, who insists on yelling and screaming move white boys outside our window, I confronted. I got to know her name when I moved here, Barbara, but she calls us white boys. Imagine if I called her Black Woman. Imagine, I would be called a racist pig.


Security reports from St Nicks Alliance's own security guards for two years now, writes report after report.  I am told by St Nicks Alliance that's not good enough, I need to wait for them to repair the camera system so they have hard evidence. They repair the cameras after a year and a half and now they have proof, they do nothing.


Hundreds of e mails to St Nick's Alliance Michael Rochford, Joseph K. Robles, Frank Lang, Hayde Cordero and Ivette Alerte provide no results. I contact politicians who contact Michael Rochford, and for over a year now he promises to fix the problems. Tells me when security cameras are fixed, they will take action. The cameras are in and they do nothing. 


Moving here has been a nightmare. All we wanted was to be was part of the community. We did not care if you were Black, White, Hispanic, Red, Yellow or Blue. All I wanted was to provide a home for the Homeless kid I took in 7 years ago. He never had a loving home and a room of his own. He is now terrified to even go outside, he stays in for months at a time. 


Racism goes both ways, but no one will admit it. My begging for help go unanswered. I go to events in NYC and tell my African and Hispanic friends what is going on here, they look at me like I am nuts, and say they hope things get better. One of my famous celebrity friends arrange breakfast with a famous civil rights activist and nothing. He's the first to yell bloody murder when African Americans and Hispanics rights are violated, but when I ask for help, show him photos and documentation, nothing. Do not ask me to support and march with you again.


St. Nicks Alliance signs a agreement to give us a application for another apartment in Oct 2013, there are several empty. Months go by and I keep asking for the application and get no answers. In Jan or Feb Michelle Sainsbury from St Nicks Alliance comes here with her sad face telling us she does not know why they have not provided us with a application. Meanwhile African Americans and Hispanics move into the empty apartments. I get a application In Feb and told there are no empty units and I will have to go on a waiting list behind 100 people. St Nicks rarely rents to white people. I got in the side door as a sublet. I guess we are their token white boys. 


I also got a hold of a e-mail between employees of St Nicks Alliance dated in Nov 2013, a few weeks after they signed the agreement to give us applications for a new unit. In it they state they will not give us another unit. They lied and lied. They never intended to live up to their agreement.


I am so sick of the abuse and I am sick of their racism. I am going to let the courts decide.

BROOKLYN'S 90TH PRECINCT REFERS YOU TO 911

****
THE BATTLE FOR WILLIAMSBURG

Story By: James Edstrom
****

A Regular Visitor Outside Our Window




Moving to Williamsburg Brooklyn has been a nightmare with the 90th precinct and my landlord St. Nicks Alliance. The landlord refuses to take action against their racist tenants and the 90th precinct refuses to enforce the law.


Since I moved out of Times Square to the so-called happening Williamsburg, we have been living a nightmare with the racist tenants in our building and drug dealers on Maujer street, and the police refuse to do anything.


The St. Nicks Alliance tenants from 19 Maujer street and their buildings across the street have been on a crusade against us since we moved in. They robbed us in the first hour we were here. They were outside our window yelling WHITE TRASH, FAGGOTS and everything else in the book. Since we have moved in here, they have thrown drinks threw our windows, stolen our window blinds, threatened us and tried to break into our apartment. And every time they are yelling  FAGGOT AND WHITE TRASH and every other name in the book. Each and every time the Police department refuses to do their job and the landlord St. Nicks Alliance refuses to take any action against these tenants. St. Nicks Alliance has reports from their own security guards backing up these claims, yet they do nothing. Ivette Alerte, Deputy Director of Asset & Property Management at St. Nicks Alliance, has received dozens of e-mails and security reports. She ignored each and every one. Her building manager Hayde Cordero also has refused to take action.


What is shocking here, is we did nothing to anyone on this block. Even more shocking is the Police Department almost every time refuses to show and the three or so times they did, told the offending people that we called them and then did nothing. This created even more problems. We have called 911, we have called the 90th precinct direct and it's always the same thing. We get lectured on bothering them. They even lecture our security guard on calling them.


Today was the last straw. One of St. Nicks Alliances tenants from across the street was revving his car for hours outside our building. Our apartment filled with fumes. This has been going on since we moved here with his motorcycles and cars. When I walked out this morning to see why this was happening, Cheddar, the block drug dealer was inside the car with another person smoking a blunt. This is the same drug dealer that has motorcycles and cars parked up and down the street with fake license plates. The city has towed his motorcycles and cars several times, yet the very next day, he has a whore new set of them.


 I called the 90th precinct today, and they lectured me on calling them direct and insisted that I call 911. I argued to the officer on the phone that when I call 911 or I call them direct, they almost each and every time refuse to show. The officer kept me on the phone for fifteen minutes asking me for all the information saying he would call 911. Are you kidding me? You call the police department and they have to call 911 only to have 911 call them back to send a car? This is outrageous. By the time the Police officer finished lecturing me, the drug dealer left and once again the police never showed up. I guess he never called 911.


So after being up all night working on my book, once again I got no sleep. Once again the 90th precinct refused to do their job. They are only 6 or 7 blocks away, yet it was too much for them to handle a valid call. This drug dealer has been arrested several times before for illegal plates, no registration and no insurance. I told the police this. So we can only wait for this drug dealer to have a accident and hurt someone and I will be the first to jump up and say that it would not have happened if the police did their job. My son is terrified to go outside alone. Me, I am not scared, they are punks and I have called them out several times and they scatter. But something will happen.


Ivette Alerte and her building manager Hayde Cordero seem to think that there is nothing wrong with their tenants acting this way. They are also well aware that this Cheddar is a drug dealer in their building across the street. They must think it is OK, as they refuse to take action. Considering that Ivette Alerte is African American and her building manager is Hispanic, I can only assume they are racist too. I contacted their boss Michael F. Rochford, Executive Director of St Nicks Alliance through former Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, and he did answer my e-mails. All promises Michael F. Rochford made were lies. Just promises he never intended to keep. He never followed up on anything, nor did he live up to a agreement they signed months ago. Not only are we being harassed by their tenants, we are living with mice and rats and they refuse to take care of any problems. 


I know one thing. If a African American or a Hispanic moved into this building and they were treated the way we have been, they would have taken action. But because we are white, nothing is done. This tells me they are racist. I do not understand when a white person complains of racism, they refuse to admit anything is wrong. Is racism only reserved for African Americans and Hispanics? What should I call it when we are called white trash, faggots and everything else in the book. 


We don't bother anyone. We moved here for more space and to be part of the community. It is only a handful of people in this building, some of the people here are fantastic. But this handful of thugs think they own this building and they own the block. They do not. And the good tenants in this building must be scared of these thugs. They hang outside our windows day and night, even know it is in their lease not too. They do not care because they know building management will do nothing, and they are right.


Considering St. Nicks Alliance is a not for profit, I am shocked they act this way. Next week we will dive into the lucrative contracts Ivette Alerte and Hayde Cordero give out to friends and family. Yes, I have done my research.


I expect retaliation from St. Nicks Alliance for writing this story. I expect them to fabricate some violation against my son and I, but I will not stop till they do the right thing. That's all I ever asked, do the right thing!
