Tenant damages apartment building in Queens


A tenant has reportedly damaged an apartment building located in Queens, said neighbors who can’t turn anywhere for help.

A Queens woman does her damage from a third-floor apartment with an ocean view. Water was left running for days, flooding the building.

Smoke pouring from beneath her front door. Hoarding old junk in the hallway, from bicycles to shopping carts. Taking a sledgehammer to her kitchen cabinets.

Her frustrated landlord and furious neighbors can’t get help from anywhere, the cops, the Fire Department or a Housing Court crippled by the pandemic.

“I’m trying to evict her because she’s a nuisance and the courts are supposedly open for business,” said building owner Martin Hanan, who is out roughly $40,000 in lost rent.

“But apparently they’re not, because they really don’t care. They don’t want to hear a word … Honestly, I gave up on calling the city.”

Hanan compiled a staggering six-page litany of Annamarie Hosang’s behavior, from allegedly tossing a fire extinguisher at the building superintendent to once blasting music from her apartment for 20 straight hours.

A review of Housing Court documents detailed the woman’s alleged activities, with multiple reports of flooding the Beach 113th St. building, ringing her neighbor’s doorbells and even threatening one of her neighbors with a pipe.

The landlord said when the NYPD and FDNY arrived on multiple occasions, they dealt with the situation and moved on.

He added that his tenants declined to bring charges against the woman over fear of retaliation.

The landlord awaits a long-delayed hearing for Hosang’s eviction. The process began in Queens Housing Court in September 2020 but things became more complicated after Hosang twice applied for a COVID relief program that assures her a home during the pandemic.
