The DeLorenzo Family
Also of East 18th Street, Albina DeLorenzo, an 84 year old widow, had lived with her two sons since 1965 at 340 East 18th St. and had recently entered Village Care Nursing Home. With one son terminally ill with cancer, her sons were being served eviction papers taped to the doors, sent by mail, and by process servers banging at their door, despite the fact that both sons were fully entitled to succession rights under the law. Croman’s lawyers had court papers served threatening eviction to Albina at the nursing home while she was lying sick in bed and worried about her youngest son with cancer being evicted from her apartment. Steve Croman purchased Albina's building on May 28, 1999, and within six months he began eviction proceedings. In contrast to the previous case of Louisa Cardigan, the DeLorenzo’s were successful because they had a lawyer, but it cost them thousands of dollars in legal fees.
