I pulled up the listing on and if you scroll to the bottom of the page, it says:
"Listing Provided by Owner - Samuel Simmons, (862) 203-8871"

Do you know Samuel Simmons? If not, I would call the telephone number above and explain your situation. You need to know that Trulia and Zillow are the same company and have no control over listings. Listings are posted by owners, realtors, property managers, etc. Zillow allows editing control. You need to go to, claim your address and edit the listing on Zillow. Once edited, it will sync to Trulia within 24-48 hours.

Hope this information helps.

Hi breakingjazz,

I agree with the first comment, if they are doing something fishy and its at your place , then you first think the safety of your family and your self, you cannot do direct consulting for we do not know what they are thinking and what they are going to do if you are going to confront them. So it is better that you must consult an attorney before doing actions . Hope your problems will be solved as soon as possible. ... more

I would contact the Broker of the office to make he/she aware of the situation. I would also contact the Department of State to file a complaint.

As licensed real estate salespeople in NYS we are not allowed to discuss anything pertaining to race, religion, or sexual orientation.

It is a violation for us to do so.

If you are still looking for a place in NYC there are some resources i can suggest you take a look at in regards to your specific rental search criteria which may help you find an area/s that appeal to you the most.

It would be my pleasure to provide my services to you and anyone you know who may be looking to rent, buy, or sell. I also work in commercial leasing and retail.

Have a wonderful night, be well

Brian Hughes

As others on the thread have commented, we're not legally allowed to answer questions about safety. You should definitely do your potential commute, especially at night, and see if you feel safe in the neighborhood.

That said, I've lived in South Harlem for a few years and enjoy it very much....especially the convenience compared to similarly-priced areas around the city.

If you'd like to chat or see some places, I'd be happy to help you!

Good luck in your search...

Hi, Elena.
Everyone has their own idea of what a "safe" neighborhood is. The best thing to do is to consult the local police precinct on crime stats.

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.…
