Flyer campaign accuses landlord of driving nice car, not making repairs in apartments



Someone has created a flyer campaign about Citadel Property Management Corp., whose office is on East 13th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B…



Per the flyers, which are along Avenue A between East 13th Street and East 14th Street, the president of the company drives a nice car… while some (or one?) of the units at 513 E. 13th St. is in need of repairs (hard to tell from the black-and-white photocopies…).

According to the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, there are several new complaints (from the same unit) at No. 513 about broken windows, peeling plaster and a roach infestation, among other things.

Citadel's East Village rentals also include 239 E. 14th St., 208 E. 13th St., and 533 E. 13th St., according to Streeteasy.

Maybe he leases it? Maybe it's a company car?

One of our landlord clients sent us this posting last night. It did initially give us a bit of a chuckle. I'd like clarify that we are not the landlord of the building we are only the property manager, there is one thing true however, I do drive a Mercedes but, mine is a 2001 E class not the 2015 C class in the photo. Nice Vehicle.


We know this tenant very, very well. The tenant calls HPD almost daily without ever calling us, they know her on a first name basis. Whenever we get the call from HPD we send a contractor or the super to the apartment within 24 hours at which time she will typically not allow them in and will send them away without access.


This Cat and Mouse game has been going on for quite a long time (years) Although, the flyer campaign along Avenue A is something entirely new.


Well played Joan… Well played
