WATCH: Councilmember Vickie Paladino Confronts Pot-Smoking Squatter in Front of College Point House

Aug. 16, 2022 By Michael Dorgan

Republican Councilmember Vickie Paladino has posted a video of herself confronting an alleged squatter in College Point.

The video, which was posted to Paladino’s Twitter page yesterday, captures the lawmaker in a heated exchange Monday with a man outside a house in the vicinity of 20th Avenue and 146th Street. The footage shows the man repeatedly shouting obscenities at her in front of the partially boarded-up house, and at one point he blows smoke from a joint into Paladino’s face.

The man, according to Paladino, has been living in the house even though its occupants have been served with an eviction notice by the city. It is unclear when the notice was issued and how long the man has been living there.
