The property manager of a Queens condominium building has been accused of installing a “racist, anti-semitic, pro-Nazi display” in the lobby.

“They feel like hostages in their own building,” City Council member Jimmy Van Bramer said, the New York Daily News reported. “And This Building Is A Place where I think all (residents) are traumatized.”

The building’s property manager, Neal Milano, has allegedly displayed pictures of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Joseph Stalin in the lobby. Nazi war criminals Rudolf Hess and Josef Mengele are listed in the building’s directory. There is also a swastika and posters about the Confederacy, according to the newspaper, as well as pictures of guns and a photo of Al Capone. Milano’s lawyer told the newspaper that the display is intended to be a “history lesson.”

“Just completely radical, national nonsense,” condo owner Greg Hunt told NY1. “And my concern is, when a potential buyer for my apartment walks in, they’re going to walk right out.”

This week, developer Richard LeFrak described Trump’s comments on the eruption of white supremacist and neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville as “inappropriate,” the strongest public criticism of the president to come from a member of Trump’s inner circle. [NYDN]Miriam Hall
