A Brooklyn grandmother died several months after she was evicted from her home while she was away, officials said.
Joy Noel, 85, told her landlord over the summer that she’d be traveling for a few months. During that time, the landlord claimed Noel refused to sign a new lease. Noel came home to learn she’d been evicted after failing to show up for a court hearing she didn’t know about.
Her landlord, Carnegie Management, changed her locks and put all of her belongings in storage. Then they stopped paying for the storage space. Noel was told her belongings would be auctioned off.
