Hawthorne Gardens Resident Message Board
Creating custom décor for your home doesn’t have to be a hard, time consuming, or costly. In fact, you can incorporate fall foliage found in our community as well as the Capital Region.
When we think of fall activities, carving pumpkins and picking apples are the first things that seem to pop into our brains. What about the rest of the events going on around the Capital Region? Take a look at our list and change up your usual fall activities!
Fall is upon us and Halloween is right around the corner. If you haven’t confirmed any plans, use our ideas to inspire your event!
Wishing all of our residents a happy, prosperous new year!!!

Attention Tea Lovers - Have you checked out The Whistling Kettle in Troy or The Tailored Tea in Latham????
Well if not, your in for a real treat! The atmosphere, teas, and food are beyond amazing and they are a first choice for many of our residents.
We suggest trying out the snowflake tea with almond, cinnamon and coconut aromas while visiting The Whistling Kettle!
It isn’t that we need to do something heroic.
We don’t need to don a cape and try saving the world!
It’s really just the little things … being mindful of our immediate
surroundings, careful of how we dispose of our trash,
maybe even picking up after someone less attentive.
Every little bit counts!
Every little thoughtful gesture helps!
Thank you for all YOU do!
We are proud to congratulate John Positano for receiving the Employee of the month award for March 2016 from Express Employment of Albany!
John has been a part of our maintenance team at Hawthorne Gardens for a little over 6 weeks now. Our Maintenance Supervisor Eric quoted "John's an excellent self-starter who takes pride in every job he does from cleaning the clubhouse bathrooms to painting an apartment. His happy go lucky attitude and willingness to learn will help him grow on my sites. He's been a pleasure to have around and I look forward to working with him."
Way to go John, keep up the good work!
APRIL FOOL’S DAY – April 1st 2016
How did it all begin? One of my favorite explanations of April Fools' Day was given by Joseph Boskin, who was a professor of history at Boston University. He explained that the practice began during the reign of Constantine, when a group of court jesters and fools told the Roman emperor that they could do a better job of running the empire. Constantine, amused, allowed a jester named Kugel to be king for one day. Kugel passed an edict calling for absurdity on that day, and the custom became an annual event.
“In a way, it was a very serious day,” said the Boston professor. “Back then fools were really wise men … and it was the role of jesters to put things in perspective with humor.”
This explanation was brought to the public’s attention with an Associated Press article that circulated in lots of newspapers in 1983. There was only one catch: Boskin made the whole thing up! And it took a couple of weeks for the AP to realize they’d been victims of an April Fool’s joke themselves.
Reminder to all residents to ensure you have activated your tenant portal for AppFolio if you have not already done so!
Effective March 1st, if you currently have your monthly rent automatically taken from your checking account or credit card you MUST log onto your Tenant Portal and sign up for Auto Pay to continue this process. We will no longer manually pull this from your account from the Main Office.
If you have not received your Tenant Portal activation email or need help setting up your Auto Pay please reach out to your property manager for directions.
We are proud to announce that Rosetti Properties has started using a new Property Manager Software Program called AppFolio effective today! You may have already received an email alerting you to our new Tenant Portal with all of the exciting capabilities you will now have access too.
In an effort to assist all residents with the Automatic/Online Payment Options for both Automatic Withdrawal and Credit Card use or Tenant Portal, Nancy from the Main Office will be at the Rental Office. We will have lite fare/refreshments available.
ACH/CC Information Set Up
- Hawthorne Gardens/ Western Ave/ Washington Ave/ Miller Ave/ Homestead - Wednesday February 10th from 11 am - 8 pm

As of March 1st, 2016 if you have not set up your tenant portal with an automatic payment you MUST physically drop off a check to the Rental Office. We will no longer be processing the existing payment method.
We hope all of our residents enjoy this new capability as we anticipate!
