ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — As the housing crisis is growing in the Capital Region, residents at an Albany apartment complex were given notice to vacate the property. Many residents at the former Bleecker Terrace apartments received non-renewal letters giving them 90 days to move out.
“Knocked on my door early in the morning. And said, ‘Are you Miss Hazl? I said yes. He gave me a letter, just like that,” said resident Elvin Hazl.
“I was scared. Very scared,” said a resident. “Where am I gonna go?”
The notice came as a shock to tenants who say they’ve paid rent on time for years. They said that the notice causes them many hardships.
“I gotta find someone to help me move and help me pack—all kinds of stuff I have to do now, to move,” Hazl said. “I can’t do all that in three months.”
The property was recently sold and is now called Capitol Crossings. NEWS10 reporter James De La Fuente tried several ways to contact the new management company for a better understanding about how and why these residents were being vacated and was unable to reach them.
