WATCH: Queens Homeowners Arrested After Trying to Evict Squatters

Current Events This Week

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

A property owner in Queens, New York, confronted a group she claims illegally moved into her million-dollar home. ABC 7 cameras captured the intense standoff and the arrival of dozens of officers.

Several people were arrested, but the twist in the story might surprise you…

The property in question belongs to Adele Andaloro, left to her by her parents in Flushing, Queens. She’s in the midst of selling it but has been locked out since February 6th. According to Andaloro, squatters have claimed her property as their own.

The confrontation reached a boiling point when Andaloro and her daughter, armed with the property deed, entered the house and found strangers inside. In New York, squatters can gain “rights” after 30 days, making Andaloro’s situation increasingly complicated.

Police involvement led to the arrest of a man claiming he’d been renting the property for two days. Another individual was escorted off the premises. Tensions flared when a locksmith changed the locks, and a man claiming to be the legitimate leaseholder arrived, leading to another police call.

The situation highlighted the insanity of New York’s housing laws. Adele Andaloro, the homeowner, was warned by police that she might face arrest for illegal eviction.

The story took another turn when Andaloro was indeed arrested for unlawful eviction. The man claiming residency demanded compensation for his supposed “investments” in the property.

Obviously, this story is still developing. Stay tuned for updates!

Also, how would you respond if you were in Ms. Andaloro’s shoes?

    Cmon, post my other comment would you.

    This is f’d up beyond any reasonable thinking. One of the few reasons I hate the city I love. The assholes running NYC are running it right into the shitter. The mayor and his city council are total dirtbags along with the district attorneys. The dopes in Albany are useless too. It just pushing that criminal trump one step closer to the Whitehouse.

      You’re an idiot, Trump living rent free in your empty head.

        You should watch the video of the asshole red necks shoveling snow in Wilksbarre Pa. February 2022. Shows you what could happen to a dumbass who call people names. I don’t call anyone names unless they screw with me or my cash. You should try it.

          It was an observation, spot on I might add.

    If I’m in my home with my child and someone tries to violently force their way in, then it’s a home invasion. Take necessary action to defend myself and my child. Thank God I live in a castle doctrine state.

      As much I hate to agree with you, you’re right.

    • Hondo March 25, 2024, 3:41 pm

      Liberal ignorance? I’m sorry this is by design, as soon as we understand that the better we will be.

  • Real conservative March 22, 2024, 7:38 am

    If you think about it possessing property that doesn’t belong to you and claiming it as yours by law is a top 5 most American thing to do…What is America if not founded (and expanded) upon squatting and stealing indigenous land? Or for that matter taking “worthless” land belonging to black amd poor red neck farmers because someone with money and political influence decided they now want to use it.

    • JRHGolfer March 22, 2024, 8:28 am

      Your comment is anything but conservative.

      • Real Conservative March 22, 2024, 8:48 am

        Because I know our American history??? …the truth of our nation never took food off my table, roof from over my head, or clothes off my back…and it darn sure never made the lord love me less…but i know for sure denying the truth is a way for me to NOT love my neighbor (those who had not so good experiences in this country’s story) as instructed.

          You’re definitely slower than the computer you stuttered that message into. Pay more attention in English and Math, maybe hardworking people like me won’t have to put food on your table through Uncle Sam then.

          Whatever you say, pal. Your feel bad for Americans and manifest destiny has no basis in Biblical truth. Here’s lesson in Latin for you Victori sunt spolia = The victor gets the spoils. Pale face come, redskin make war on paleface. Paleface wins, hence he gets the prize. Wanna go full Biblical? Try this? Joshua made war on everybody west of the Jordan River and took all the land for the Israelites. Why, pray tell, is the ballad of North America any different? How about Hernan Cortez, who decimated the Aztecs in Mexico? Or Francisco Pizzaro, who conquered Peru? It’s seemingly obvious you’ve bought into the liberal apologists’ CRT bologna. If you feel so bad about America’s manifest destiny and conquest of present day USA, then please, by all means adopt an Indian tribe and get a job supporting them to levels above and beyond the welfare our tax dollars already support them. Fund reparations for people who have not been enslaved in their lifetime. I happen to know something about world history in addition to American history.

          • Real conservative March 23, 2024, 9:53 am

            You are so triggered by CRT bogeyman (that you clearly dont even understand) that you bring it up while actually agreeing with me…all I said was behaivor like that aligns with American history…it’s a factual statement…you clearly agree by all you referenced…I then said telling the truth doesn’t cost me a thing…i never said surrender the country or pay reparations…you clearly feel that would be justice so you do it…lol.
            I can say this though people who respond like you do to historical fact likely fear they have something to lose by acknowledging it…I don’t…I can tell the truth and sleep easy…If you can then what are you really mad about from a simple statement of fact?

        • J. R. Hutto April 3, 2024, 6:50 pm

          So you make a condescending reply to my reply to your dipstick notion and make it so I can’t reply to your idiotic nonsense?
          Look, dude. It’s only a logical extension to your liberal sputum that reparations should follow the liberal apologist crap you spew.
          Again to the victor go the spoils, period. What happened in America is no different than anywhere else in the world. Our “indians” are no different than any other conquered peoples on this planet EXCEPT we pay our Indians welfare from working people’s tax dollars. If you disagree, go live in Montana, South Dakota, or a few other western states and see for yourself how the “proud” indigenous folks live on their “sovereign” tribal lands. You might actually learn something.

    What does this have to do with this platform? Slow news day?

    • Bob W March 22, 2024, 10:24 am

      It’s just another way for this magazine to show how much it hates my home (New York). I’m starting to hate it too.

  • Kane March 19, 2024, 2:03 pm

    A couple things, is that property really a “million-dollar home”? An illegal act should NOT establish a legal claim.

    • Bob W March 22, 2024, 10:26 am

      In NYC a million don’t buy you much, especially in a “nice” neighborhood.

  • bobsyouruncle March 19, 2024, 1:53 pm

    SAD, Bada boom, badda bing! not the squatters first rodeo.Looks like extortion, pay me some money and I’ll leave

    • Hondo March 28, 2024, 9:07 am
