A Queens property manager who was accused of plastering his Sunnyside condominium lobby with Nazi and Confederate imagery was charged Sunday for stalking and harassing a building resident, police said.

Neal Milano, 70, followed, pulled and grabbed a woman who lived in his building at 47-55 39th Place in multiple incidents over a 10-month period, according to police. He was also verbally abusive on about 20 occasions between September 2016 and July 2017, the NYPD said.

Milano’s arrest was not connected to the lobby display, police said. But residents have said Milano intimidates them if they complain about the posters, sparking an investigation into alleged tenant harassment by the New York City Commission on Human Rights last month.

The posters include images of swastikas, a picture of Adolf Hitler and a drawing of a man dancing in blackface.

Milano was not able to be reached for comment.
