Mario is also the owner for Salerno’s Autobody, and has already been credited in the neighborhood as being a respected senior member, actively participating in spreading good through the whole entire community.
He also had this to say to the people who has benefitted out of his generosity, being humble till the last:
“I want everybody to be healthy. That’s the whole thing. For me, it was more important for people’s health and worrying about who could put food on whose table. I say don’t worry about paying me, worry about your neighbor and worry about your family.”
Kaitlyn Guteski is his tenant and has previously been worried sick about how she will sustain herself in this quarantine crisis.Her hair salon was the only income source she had, and it was shut down after the City’s measures for social distancing had been implemented.
had been worrying about how she was going to pay rent after the hair salon she owns was shut down due to the social-distancing measures in place.She, being free from such financial burdens for now, proclaimed about Salerno: ‘He’s Superman.
He’s a wonderful man.’
Paul Gentile is a lawyer and also Salerno’s tenant, and contrary to our common concept couldn’t afford to keep up with his home too after New York City’s courthouses closed down starting March 18.
He is a loyal four year tenant, and he applauds Salerno as one of the most kindest soul he has ever met:
“You don’t see that, especially in a landlord-tenant relationship in New York City. He’s amazing. It has alleviated a huge amount of stress that I have been having with the unemployment system in the state.”
We hope to see more of the spirit of solidarity and human kindness among fellow Americans and the world in these turbulent times.
