After a dispute with squatters in her $1 million Queens home, police arrested 47-year-old Adele Andaloro, sparking a debate on NYC property rights and squatter laws. She claims to have inherited the home from her deceased parents.

Police arrested Adele Andaloro for changing locks to oust squatters from her home, as she faced legal hurdles due to NYC’s 30-day squatter’s rights.

Andaloro entered her home with a film crew to record squatters and encountered confrontation. After she showed the deed and changed the locks, police arrested her when a man claiming a lease forcefully re-entered.

Brian Rodriguez, a squatter, claimed he signed a lease but lacked details or proof. He refused to leave without compensation from Andaloro or a legal eviction.

This incident has sparked debate on the challenges of dealing with squatters and their legal protections. NYC law allows squatter’s rights after 30 days, complicating eviction. Andaloro must now pursue eviction in court, underscoring the hurdles in reclaiming property. With NYC evictions averaging 20 months, her fight continues.

The case has stirred community response, with neighbors frustrated by the squatters and neighborhood impact. Residents consider a petition to support Andaloro and tackle citywide squatting issues.
