From the Manhattan Times:
“I tried to contact the banks but I was given the run-around,” he said during the press conference, fighting back tears as he spoke.
Despairing and ready to give up, he finally approached Staten Island Legal Services of New York and, as he explained it, “they are the reason why I’m still in my home right now. I would’ve been homeless without Legal Services.”
New York State Senator Jeffrey D. Klein convened the press conference and was joined by State Senators Adriano Espaillat and Eric Adams, State Assemblymembers Guillermo Linares and Francisco Moya, and New York City Councilmember Julissa Ferreras.
