I just read the article about Beach 115th Street. The problem is Matt, the landlord. He claims he does not rent to sex offenders? He is lying. One look at the N.Y.S sex offender registry will tell you otherwise. Type in the zip code and Beach 115th Street and surprise! Three on the block alone. One such offender I had to alert library personnel on Beach 117th Street. He was sitting in the teen’s section, staring at a teenage girl. I went to the registry, printed a paper with his picture and rap sheet, and gave it to a librarian. She kicked him out of the section.
How many nights have I been woken up by Matthew’s tenants? More than I care to remember. Now, not everyone who lives in Matt’s building does drugs or is a sex offender but there are more than a few. I heard people calling each other out....hey mother -----! I will bust your ass and all kinds of nonsense.
The man I used to rent a room from? He would rather have a few empty rooms than rent to just anyone with cash in hand. If you have a government check or are being put up by the city, or are a released convict, Matt is your go to guy to rent from.
I wish he would sell his S.R.O.’s to legit people.
Don't believe his lies.
