A property manager who displayed Nazi and Confederate posters in his building’s lobby was arrested Sunday for allegedly harassing and stalking a tenant.

Neal Milano, 70, is accused of repeatedly following a 43-year-old woman who lived at the condominium building at 47-55 39th Place, the Wall Street Journal reported. Milano, who served as the building’s property manager, also allegedly scared the woman by pulling on her arm at least once.

The New York City’s Commission on Human Rights is investigating the Sunnyside building to see whether it created a hostile environment for tenants. The building’s lobby was decorated with posters of Adolf Hitler, a swastika, a cartoon of an African-American next to the words “The Original Jim Crow” and Benito Mussolini.

An attorney for the condo board, Jacob Laufer, said the board approved the images displayed in the lobby to represent U.S. history and World War II. [WSJ]Kathryn Brenzel
