Residents of Newport Riverside, an apartment complex in Tampa, Florida that is owned by Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, are complaining about the poor, slum-like conditions of the complex. Newport Riverside is just one of 15 complexes that Alex Rodriguez’s company Newport Property Ventures owns. Rodriguez is baseball’s highest paid player with $27.5 million coming in each year. You would think with a bankroll like that, A-Rod could get these problems fixed, but residents say problems like courtyard lights and holes in walls or broken windows have gone months without repair. Other complaints from residents at Newport Riverside include what they said were unfair tows from the parking lot Monday night.  Tow trucks removed a number of residents’ vehicles because they backed into their spots, violating a little-known and non-posted policy of only parking “front in.” Residents had to pay upwards of $175 a piece to retrieve their vehicles; money they say will come out of their families’ Christmas allowance. In the video, a female resident living in one of the units complains about molded wood on the stairwell and leaks in her ceiling as well as rats and roaches that live throughout the units. It is not just the condition of the apartments that are in jeopardy. 10 News called the City of Tampa and that prompted an immediate visit from the Fire Marshall. Upon arriving, the Fire Marshall found an improperly-locked driveway gate at the back of the complex, as well as code enforcement. [The Big Lead via WTSP] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
