Newport Riverside is one of the many apartment complexes owned by Newport Property Ventures (a company founded by A-Rod), but this one is different from the 14 others — it comes fully equipped with rats, roaches, rotting wood and leaky ceilings, according to News 10.
And nothing is apparently being done about it.
In fact, this isn’t the first time the residents have complained, as the New York Times ran a feature on the complex five years ago, reporting similar complaints.
But that’s not it. Residents reportedly have also been towed recently for parking in their own parking spots “incorrectly”. Earlier this week, tow trucks removed a number of residents’ cars because they backed into their spots, which violates a non-posted policy of only parking “front in.”
Tenant Leslie Barnes was one of the residents who had to cough up $175 to get her car back from the tow company. That money was supposed to go toward her children’s Christmas gifts.
So there you have it: Grinch-Rod is apparently stealing gifts from children. Check out the video below.
