Former Lindsay Park co-op president sentenced for corruption

The former board president of the Lindsay Park Housing Cooperative in Williamsburg was sentenced to a minimum of one to three years in prison last week for her involvement in a corruption scheme.

Cora Dix-Austin, who was first elected to lead the seven-building, Mitchell-Lama affordable housing complex in 2002, was accused of taking bribes from January 2011 to July 2015.

During that four-year span, Austin participated in a kickback scheme involving $500,000 of co-op money meant for services, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

In addition to her prison sentence, Austin was also ordered to pay $110,000 in restitution to the 2,702-unit co-op.

Last Wednesday morning in front of Brooklyn Supreme Court, the resident group Shareholders for the Betterment of Lindsay Park rallied in celebration of the outcome. Along with advocates, the shareholders spoke out about the practices Austin engaged in that ultimately hurt the housing co-op for 15 years.

In an interview, Gregory Louis, deputy program director at Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A and an attorney representing the shareholders, said residents had been complaining about their co-op president to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) for a decade-and-a-half, only to be ignored.

“The signs of all these problems were evident, and HPD ignored them,” Louis said. “HPD should feel ashamed.”

The list of grievances from residents run the gamut from lack of repairs to weakening the democracy at the co-op board.

In a January 23rd letter from Nelson Jaime, president of communications with the shareholders group, to Judge Chun, the Lindsay Park resident said maintenance fees have increased 75 percent during Austin’s 15-year reign as president.

According to Louis, in the 37 years prior to Austin’s leadership, the Mitchell-Lama co-op had only increased maintenance fees by $300. For an affordable housing development that Louis called a “bastion of diversity” in the neighborhood housing African-Americans, Latinos, Jewish and Eastern Europeans from nearby neighborhoods, the growing costs were alarming.

In the letter, Jaime also detailed how Austin cut off access to community rooms used by seniors for activities and children for tutoring. He accused Austin of retaliating against shareholders who opposed her by issuing “bogus by-law violations” and even initiating eviction proceedings.

The buildings themselves still face ongoing issues. Jaime said the roofs are in “horrible shape,” and 28 elevators are in such disrepair that residents are constantly trapped in them. The facades of all seven buildings are also in dangerous condition, he said.

The housing co-op now faces a $110 million debt, $70 million of which had been incurred during Austin’s presidency, Jaime wrote. Louis added that Austin applied for a state loan that could have added up to $60 million more to the debt total, but did not get it.

Lindsay Park also dealt with oil spills because the tanks were not maintained, which added remediation and tank replacement costs to the debt.

“I can go on and on about the sad state of affairs, but they all highlight the core reality: while Cora was receiving thousands in a kickback scheme, our cooperative was falling apartment,” Jaime said. “We are literally paying for her crimes through the increased maintenance.”

There have also been long-standing allegations that Austin “bought votes” for the co-op board presidency by giving away apartments to allies, Louis said. Rather than putting her “proxies” on a long waiting list, Austin bypassed the waiting list for the highly coveted affordable housing units, he said.

As a result, Louis said shareholders have run for the co-op board presidency and lost.

“They’ve run against the board knowing they would lose because the fix is in,” he said. “They won the in-person vote but lost to the proxies.”

Though the list of accusations is long, Austin was ultimately brought down for corruption. According to Louis, she made a deal with maintenance workers who usually go into people’s apartments and tell residents they needed to fix two or three things.

Instead, Louis said, the workers would make up to seven repairs to “pad the bill,” and charge the bill to the co-op. The vendor would then give a share to Austin.

According to court documents, Austin was caught when a police investigator used a confidential informant. The informant, the owner of a company that had contracts to provide services for Lindsay Park, gave money to Austin in exchange for an agreement that the company “continued to receive such contracts.”

The shareholders organization has been highlighting the “financial hot mess” and other issues at Lindsay Park for years, Louis said.

They sued the co-op to get records and documents about its management. They hosted town halls to inform residents of their shareholders’ rights. They organized writing campaigns to HPD to bring their issues to the agency’s attention.

Louis said the city agency has been “asleep at the wheel” the entire time. The only reason why Austin was locked up is because prosecutors, starting with former Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson, listened to the shareholders and hosted meetings with them.

“The real core ask for the shareholders is ensure HPD stops being asleep at the wheel, stop being part of the problem and exercise enforcement,” he said. “If all that came of this is Cora Austin was arrested, this would be a waste of time.”

Louis demanded that HPD follow the district attorney’s lead, listen to residents and take their concerns seriously moving forward. Every other person involved in the scheme, including the management company and other vendors who participated, should be brought to justice, he said.

“If you take one elderly African-American woman and throw her in prison and think that’s a solution, it’s not,” he said. “They’re going to put pressure on HPD and the mayor, the city government, to make sure they don’t lose affordable housing because of corruption. If that does not happen, none of this matters.”

In a statement, Councilman Antonio Reynoso said the sentencing of Austin proves that the lack of democracy and transparency at Lindsay Park is a reality.

“Although we applaud the work done by both Thompson and Vance, we must continue fighting for democracy and transparency,” he said, “knowing that Cora’s criminal actions represent only a small link in a long chain of corruption that has occurred at Lindsay Park.”

A HPD spokesperson said the agency takes the oversight of its Mitchell-Lama portfolio seriously, and that it has been cooperating with the district attorney during the investigation.

“HPD is also actively working with the board of directors to secure a much-needed loan to address the physical needs and secure the financial integrity on this coop,” the spokesperson said.

Does anyone know if there is truth to the rumour that Cora is under house arrest and living in her apartment with an ankle monitor? I noticed that her car is back in her parking spot and saw Tameka parking it several times. I am still calling the management office to get a list of the current board to be posted in the lobby. No luck and was told that if I wanted to get a message to the board president, I would have to tell them my message and they have the board president's phone number and they will relay my message and "get back to me". This is outrageous!!! Before you know it, the board members will have their own security guards to protect them. All of them need to be voted out!!!

Blding 1 - its a rumor... CORA DIXI-AUSTIN is in jail serving her one year sentence. Her daughter drives her car. The Board members list has to be posted behind the glass in all 7 buildings this is mandatory. And yes everyone should have a copy of it.

Call the office speak to Victor S. Berrios and tell him this has to be posted. I will call tomorrow also and send and e-mail to hpd and David Baron head of metro management.

I have a copy of the list of board members I can place a couple downstairs in building 2 if you need it. I will place it on the community bulletin board. Just tell me when and I will pin it.

To get rid of the board - HPD has the power to remove them but won't - so we have to have a petition to remove/replace the board.

I hoped this helped, take care.

The truth!

To the so call “Board Members” it’s not fair but we all know life isn’t fair. The decisions you people made by staying quiet when every single one of you were given an opportunity to make life In Lindsay Park a better place for everyone and you failed us. We all know how you all stood on the sidelines all those years as a loyal friend to Cora Austin who She used to destroy these beautiful neighborhood that many raised their families. I would’ve thought she would’ve improved your skills as “Board Members” to insure this place was better for all to live. Many shareholders that were on the board were removed for speaking their minds and needed the support from others on the board to stop that woman but we’re treated unfairly. So many years passed and no one new anything so you say. I don’t know how you hold your heads up among your neighbors and friends Cora was a great manipulator and her behavior with the rest of the clowns impacted this community in a great deal being quiet gave her the power so do us a favor and when you walk around Lindsay Park observe your surroundings and remember that you helped create this. Hope you can all live with yourselves and give the shareholders true respect. Needed to say this lord help you people change.

well it's April 12TH the day after the sentencing of Vinay Vohra and Jay Silverberg and I will do my best to relay what I saw but first I would start by voicing my disappointment with the shareholders of Lindsay Park; I've heard stories from so many fellow shareholders on how these two men have done so many horrible things to residents, the disrespect, their blatant negligence, how they were belligerent (especially Vinay!) to residents in times of need, they would not do their jobs, and so much more which I don't have the time or space to document here but where were all these shareholders to witness what they so badly wanted for so long "the arresst and incarceration of the purveyors of our misery" so, again I was disappointed by how little shareholders there were in attendence, I thought that this is what we all wanted but apparently I was mistaken and the bad guys are right, they'll win every time because we as shareholders cannot be bothered to make justice happen and then witness justice but are fine with wallowing in our misery and oppression; simply but "we have bad things happen to us cause we let them!" So, Vinay and Jay arrived around lunch time and had to sit with everybody else because of the court not being opened due to lunch they were there with their families. Once in the Courtroom, we heard 4 other cases before the sentencing of Jay and Vinay all involving some fraud towards Lindsay Park by contractors, they each paid fines of $5,000 plus restitution in the amounts of $10,000 and higher each, that all being done Vinay was called up first charges were read Vinay pled guilty was sentenced to minimum 1 year maximum 3 years with $100,000 restitution which was already paid in full (paid in full, I hope that bothers everyone else as much as that bothers me) and some other fees I was unfamilliar with, when asked if Vinay had anything to say for himself he gave an insincere and poorly delivered "I sorry"; his remorse was nowhere to be seen but my favorite moment was the look on his face when they put the handcuffs on him, I think it dawned on him at that moment that this was really happening and he would not be sleeping in his own bed that night. with Jay, it was almost all the same 1-3 years in jail $100,000 in restitution and so on but when it came time to make a statement Jay said he was sorry for what he had done and apologized to family, friends and then turned to where we were sitting and apologized to the residents of Lindsay Park, I was surprised but then thought was it all a well-delivered performance or a sincere apology, I don't know but in the end it was just as satisfying to see the handcuffs placed on him and I was glad I was there to witness justice happen. So, to sum it all up to this point; an ex-board pres. management his assistant serving time, Marvin Daniel (superintendent), Carlos Rodriguez (painter) going soon and several vendors and or contractors fined and forced to make restitution, and more coming soon. Change is coming but it would be good if others would voice their disapproval of what's going on in Lindsay Park with action. Thank you and God bless you.

Okay, so that's why vendors just stay around.These vendors should not be doing business. But the penalty is so low, they just continue. Some of these people been working with each other a long time. They just shuffle along to another spot. Let's get to the business at hand....the loan. Where are we so we can get this scaffolding over.

The majority living here are Asians so how many of them showed up. Just like the meetings they don’t show up because of the language but all they want is an apartment here in Lindsay Park. Some of us work so we could not take a day off from work to go see these two good for nothing get what they deserved. I for one is very happy that after 30 yrs living here don’t have to listen to rumors that the office and board where robbing from us. I hope there will be justice and that these crooks don’t come back to live here. All of them still hiding money for sure and will be living large in a few months. While the rest of us have to look at our ugly hallways, lobbies and grounds all run down to the ground. Let’s see what else happens...

Hello everyone I hope all are doing well.

SENTENCING:

APRIL 11, 2018

Brooklyn Supreme Criminal Court

330 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Time: 9-4

JAY D. SILVERBERG - VINAY VOHRA - MARVIN J. DANIEL

I will be there just as I was there watching Cora's sentencing. I hope I see some of you there.

I am still fighting for our homes, we all should be fighting for our homes, we live here such a long time to have the board and other individuals who are friends of the board to take this place apart. I lived in this neighbor all my life and gets me angry that we as a community stay back and watch our buildings fall apart and afraid of the people running this place, why?

I seen some people live here and don't care one way or the other if the building falls apart they just complain, all talk. This is my thing MOVE - stop complaining get together as a community as other places in Williamsburg, they are fighting for their homes. Why is coop city the biggest coop in the USA are getting fundings because they are fighting for their property and over 43,000 people live there. Ohh! yeah, they have only 15 Board members and one extra is a HOUSING MGMT REP to keep eye on things to make sure its running fine.

And we have 21 board members, why? if the biggest coop in the usa can run with 15 members then why do we need 21 members.

And why HPD/BOARD selling our property!

I am sorry for by anger and outburst I am tired and I fighting for our homes.

I wish you all well and God bless for those who are fighting for us.

Do not apologize for your words everything you said was absolutely right. We have people that agree with your words and ask what’s going on but they aren’t doing our community any good what they need to do is get involve. I am also tired of the ones that love to hear the gossip but turn their faces when they need to speak up. I love what one of my neighbor tells them when they ask her for info, she tells them you should’ve been there and you would’ve known what happened. I love it because she and I were the only two people from our building that went to Cora Austin’s Last day of freedom. There is nothing to be afraid of we can’t continue letting these people play games with our homes. SPEAK UP AND WITNESS THE CHANGE! HOPE TO SEE MANY MORE SHAREHOLDERS AT THE SENTENCING!

This is how these things are done in this city every body is scratching each other’s backs. No one wants to go to jail so let’s give these people the minimum and move on. There is no way with all the files they investigated that they only found the scam with cocho.

Managements news letter is a lot more clear and helpful. They explained the violation procedures a lot better. Shareholders don’t have to run around like crazy people trying to resolve the situation. Like the way they are informing us of the little blue book of rules and regulations that new tenants never received. I wonder if new tenants are going to be able to see the apartments before contracts are signed. Vinay vohra never allowed the new tenants to see the apartment he would give them the key and wave, tenants were left to fight for there money if they moved out. The board was at fault for this behavior and whoever was in charge of the apartment walk threw. He was one nasty individual and deserves to be where he’s going. They treated the shareholders like crap.

Now she’s just a number at her age she should’ve been thinking of how she could’ve made Lindsay Park a better place to live for everyone. She looked at us in the face on sundays, where she went to church and prayed with the very people she was stealing from. I don’t think she will ever feel sorry for what she did. The worst part of this is the ones that new what she did and still coverup for her. Think about it you know who you are.
