Allison Mack’s Albany NY Townhouse Was House of Horrors

Allison Mack's townhouse at 7 Generals Way
By Shadow State
Numerous commenters repeatedly argue on this forum that Allison Mack did nothing wrong. She is a pure victim of the terrible Keith Raniere, the Vanguard of Nxivm.
The United States Department of Justice took a different position and Mack was convicted of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy.
Under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) the government has the right to seize any property used in violation of the act.
Mack recently agreed to surrender her Clifton Park townhouse in suburban Albany NY – worth an estimated $230,000  – to the federal government.
The current DOJ policy is to compel forfeiture of any property used for sex trafficking and though Mack – as part of her plea deal – was not convicted of sex trafficking – [she was originally charged with it] she has nevertheless quietly surrendered her townhouse at 7 Generals Way; Clifton Park, New York.
She is currently awaiting sentencing – and federal sentencing guidelines suggest a prison term in the 3-5 year range.
Mack used her property to brand women of NXIVM who became sex slaves.
She also apparently had women branded at her apartment that she shared with her spouse and fellow slave Nicki Clyne – at 27 Grenadier which is also in Clifton Park.   127 Grenadier did not own 127 Grenadier but used her rental home also to brand women.


127 Grenadier was rented by Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne – women were commanded to come there and be branded on their pubic  region with Keith Raniere’s initials. Some believe that the initials were both Raniere’s and Allison Mack’s.

But the townhouse at 7 General’s Way – was the property the feds took – because Allison owned it – and through the magic of the internet we can take a tour of that townhouse and see what it looks like empty of furniture.
We can try to imagine what it was like in the good old days when Nicki and Allison oversaw women writhing in agony as Dr. Danielle Roberts applied the white hot cuaterizing pen on their pubic area -scarring out the initials K-R-A-M
You  can see the property on Zillow:

Allison MAck’s ‘master’ bedroom. While it is not known if her own master Keith Alan Raniere ever visited her and favored her here and sprayed her with his magical semen, she often slept here with her own slaves.
Here is the room where Allison Mack and some of her slaves took their cold showers – required of them as a daily penance – if perchance they went above their 500-800 calorie per day diet.
Allison MAck’s kitchen. It may be small but so was her 500 -800 calorie diet. On the refrigerator. Allison used to keep sticky notes about calories.


While her finished basement was not the main dungeon – Allison and her sex partner and co-slave Daniela Padilla worked together to create BSDM areas where slaves could be punished. Perhaps some of them loved it – but others told Frank Report they were terrified of being paddled or locked in dark rooms for their punishment.


This is a representation of the paddling punishment imposed on the women of DOS.

Don’t expect to find any blood in the townhouse because the nature of cauterization is to weld shut any bleeding wounds.

Cauterization hurts like Hell and leaves burn scars but generally causes little bleeding.
Overall the photos show a nice home with little ventilation because of the cold climate enjoyed in Saratoga County.  That leads me to wonder how Allison and Nicki got rid of the stench of burned flesh left over by the branding.  Opening up the windows would let the neighbors smell the charred flesh and let them hear the screaming of the women.
Maybe the women used lots of cans of air freshener.  Perhaps aromatic candles.
In this photo of Allison Mack‘s home from her Instagram page on the floor we see a smiling Buddha and on the dresser we see a metal cylinder that looks like it might be an incense burner for covering up nasty smells from charred flesh or illicit substances.
Spouses Nicki Clyne and Allison Mack. Did they  use incense to disguise the aroma of burned skin?
All in all it looks like a nice home – and quite practical for branding women or an orgy with a number of slender attractive women and one smelly kind of hairy shortish man with erectile dysfunction who persuaded all of the women he was the smartest, most ethical and spiritually advanced man in the world.
It’s easy to see why Allison Mack was crazy for Keith Raniere.

Bonus Feature:

Some of the groups Allison Mack was involved in at NXIVM include:

1.) JNESS, a portal to bring women into the cult.

2.) Girls By Design, a portal to bring teenage girls into the cult.

3.) A Capella Innovations, a singing group designed as a cultural front for the criminal gang and designed to bring college students into the cult.

4.) Simply Human, another singing group serving as a front for NXIVM.

Allsion Mack with the singing group Simply Human

5.) The Knife Media, a propaganda outlet for the NXIVM gang and designed to bring writers into the cult

6.) The Source, a bogus acting school designed to attract aspiring young actresses into the cult.

7.) Rainbow Cultural Garden, another recruitment and indoctrination group designed to indoctrinate children into the cult.  Allison Mack might have been trying to use Rainbow Cultural Garden to lure a young girl from Northern Ireland into the cult.  This is a matter that should be investigated thoroughly by American and British authorities.

8.) The Vow or DOS – the inner core of the slave group of women owned by Raniere.  And Allison Mack seems to have been the Harem Keeper of the Vow.


Nevertheless we still have the NXIVM and Allison Mack apologists who support the lie that Allison Mack was a victim lured into the cult.

    • It is an indisputable fact that the FBI used the RICO Act to compel Allison Mack to forfeit the Townhouse she owned in Clifton Park because she was using it as part of a Racketeering enterprise.
      It was used for extortion and sex trafficking.

      Allison Mack did not give up a 230,000 dollar property out of the goodness of her heart.

      Might I add that you are a bully and thug, brave Mr. or Ms. Anonymous.

      If Allison Mack were so concerned about being subjected to hatred and scorn and ridicule the dummy should never have branded women like cattle and enslaved them.

      Most people who are confronted with the facts of this case will conclude that Allison Mack is either a Moron or a Sadistic Lunatic.

      Let’s see some recent social media comments about this case:

      Allison Mack screwed herself over.

  • gonna be short because i’m tired of your lies:

    99% lies debunked in court
    Allison was coerced
    Allison was Under a diet (that reduced her ability to make decision)
    Allison was Under sleep deprivation

    You are an idiot and you need help.

    There is no need for me to lose more time repeating the same thing again and again (except to remind you are a loser and a sycko)

  • The architecture is certainly a horror.

    A celebration of bad taste.

    But yes, Mack is a criminal, and deserves a substantial prison sentence.

    Not a lenient sentence, but one which reflects the gravity of her offenses.

    • Paul,
      The architecture is typical of townhouses which are built more for cheapness than aesthetics.
      They have high cathedral type ceilings which are merely empty space which must be heated in the winter.
      The way townhouse and condo ownership is typically arranged, the owner is free to change inside furnishings but is unable to rearrange structural elements like walls and doors.
      Other townhouses in Knox Woods would look similar.
      Of course the real horrors are the acts committed on young women by Allison Mack and her friends inside those walls.

    • Paul,

      Bad taste?

      Welcome to middle America.

      Trump won the republican nomination because the party was so out of touch with common people.

      Trump probably could have won running as an independent.

      The Republican and Democratic parties are out of touch with real Americans.

      That house that you deride is great place to live if you from the rust belt or the Bible Belt.

      Everyone I know would make fun of that house……

      But that house represents the dream home out of reach of most Americans.

      Welcome to reality!!!!!!!!

      Ever been to West Virginia? Or western Pennsylvania?

      If no then you have no idea how real Americans live. I always tell people in New England they have no idea what America is like….

      • ” I always tell people in New England they have no idea what America is like….”

        For once you are right, Niceguy.
        Many hard working Americans work full time, sometimes at two jobs, and still can not afford a house like that.
        And in the heartland of America from Pennsylvania through Ohio, Indiana, the rural Midwest and down through the South many homes are ramshackle.
        And America’s elite, who deindustrialized America, don’t know and don’t care.

        That type of townhouse is common in the faster growing suburbs of Chicago.
        Allison Mack owned the pictured townhouse and rented another much like it , probably when the stench from the branding got too much for her and her ‘charming’ spouse Nicki.
        As I understand it the stench from burning flesh made people retch and almost vomit even when wearing masks.
        And Mack’s apartment in Brooklyn was also used for brandings.

    • get help paul.

      Her offense was :
      Being a victim?
      Being coerced?
      Doing collateral collection while coerced herself?

      You need a substantial time in a mental facility.

  • Mack bought the General’s Way property in 2011, and was still the owner of record as of this week.

    Does anyone know exactly when she rented the other property? And why did she really have the need for a second place?

    What would be interesting is to have a better accounting of how she used both residences, and particularly where brandings took place.

    And good luck to whoever has to try to sell a property with such infamous connections. I believe the realtor will have to disclose that, though it might depend on New York state law; and it may be hard to find anyone who wants to live in such a place unless it has been completely gutted and rebuilt, so it could end up selling at a steep discount.

    Interesting that the first good reference I found actually includes “cult activity”:

    Duty to Disclose: Selling Stigmatized Property

    • AnonyMaker:

      You are right that a seller of a property has to inform any potential buyer of any criminal activity that took place there.
      Usually, that would include crimes like murders or rapes.
      But cult activity like brandings and sexual slavery rituals would also be included.
      Many people, particularly those of a more religious or traditional outlook would hesitate to buy such a property.
      That circumstance will make it harder for the US government to sell that property.

      In this montage of Allison Mack’s recruitment videos for NXIVM filmed from 2013 to 2017 the very first video is filmed in the backyard of Mack’s townhouse as you can tell from the fence behind her.
      Allison Mack Cult Recruitment Videos 2013-2017 (NXIVM, Jness, DOS, sex slave cult, pyramid scheme)

      • I think most buyers would be creeped out by the property’s history unless the place were gutted and rebuilt so that it was essentially new and different, and looked nothing like the pictures associated with Mack and her perverse misdeeds. And even then a new owner would have to worry about gawkers looking for the address, and would get Mack’s junk mail for years if not decades; they probably can’t change the house number in a condo development like that, as is sometimes done with residences that have infamous histories.

        However, thinking it through, it might be picked up for closer to asking price by someone intending to rent it out to tentants, who would be less likely to know or care. I still think we’ll see it discounted a fair bit, but particularly in a situation where the government may be involved the realtor probably has to start out asking a price based on comparable sales of units with no stigma, and then demonstrate by letting it sit on the market with no buyers that the price has to be dropped for it to sell.

        • I suppose that with time the stench will dissipate and the ‘ladies’ (Allison and Nicki) cleaned out the townhouse before the Federal hammer came down.
          But the stigma will never entirely go away.

          Changing the street number is the easiest solution.
          Because the units have common walls it is not easy to remodel without affecting multiple units.
          Maybe the Bronfmans or some of the members of NXIVM Mexico will buy it and present it to Allison and Nicki as a gift for services rendered.
          I am sure Allison and Nicki will want the unit as a memento of the good old days of screaming women and sizzling flesh.
          I doubt that Allison’s parents will want her and her eccentricities in their house after the revelations of the last few years.

          • I think it’s more about the stigma than any literal stench. Though, at a minimum, the place ought to have the carpets replaced (not just cleaned, which is what it looks like) and be repainted so that it feels brand new and free of any trace of the previous inhabitants.

            I haven’t been involved in condo renovation projects in a long time, but I don’t believe there’s anything necessarily preventing an owner from gutting the unit down to the shared walls on either side, plus probably one stack of internal walls that is load bearing for the roof (and even that might be reconfigured). I’d want to get a unit like that at about half price, and completely re-do it so that it was unrecognizable and conformed to whatever design trends are currently popular.

            We’ll just have to watch and see what the market says. It may sit for a long time as the price is slowly reduced, as is typical with problem properties like this – or once the clock runs out, it will just be auctioned off.

            Yet more financial losses and destruction of wealth thanks to Raniere.

  • I just can’t get over why Nxians would leave their lives behind and move to nowheresville, NY, and live in crappy townhouses built in the 80s. It seems to me that most of them would be used to better accommodations. It seems like they were brainwashed to take such a step down. What else could it have been?

  • I apologize for complaining about the astrology posts. Compared to this repetitive I’m-rubber-you’re-glue series of pro/anti Mack articles, musings on Epstein’s starsigns were like reading Nature magazine but with text by a young Hemingway. The glory days of science and literature.

    I’m even remembering the Satanic temple hides slave tunnels (Yes? No?) posts more fondly. More batshit crazy, imo, but less tedious. Less numerous. Less teens arguing over who is more evil and why: Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. Only here it’s two old aaaaaactually…dudes doing it. Persons. Whateves.

    Let the aaaaaactually-ing begin! (Or not, please and thanks.)

  • “Allison Mack’s kitchen. It may be small but so was her 500 -800 calorie diet.” Ha!

    The captions are delightful…

    Yeah, there’s a lot on this blog about AM, but really she is the most incongruous, tragicomic element of this story. And the ex-actress is a big part of the reason this story received so much press attention. It even went international, and was all over the entertainment press worldwide. I guess we have Allison Mack to thank (?) for that.

    And when she’s sentenced to prison, whenever that may be, it’ll all hit the fan again. I’ll have my popcorn ready!

    • I hope when she gets out she does not go on a grand virtue signalling tour to warn people about the ‘dangers’ of cults.
      Just get a job at Goodwill and quietly fade away into oblivion.
      No more of this unrepentant idiot trying to make the world a better place.

  • Oh good. Back to back Allison articles for me to skip over. Hope everyone has fun commenting on these and, thus, causing more to appear.

    To Anonymous friend of Allison – I changed my mind. You should disappear and pretend these neverending articles don’t exist. Stop defending your girl. The comments and discussion you help incite are what’s causing this shit show to continue.

    • Nutjob,

      How does Shadowstate have the wear-with-all to keep on writing about Allison Mack?……..


      I would be losing my mind right about now if I had written hundreds of pages on the same topic over and over and over and over again….Shadowstate could have written his own bible by now.


      Shadowstate you are one mentally tough human being……

      …..Or you are like Jack Torrance.

      Jack Torrance: [typed]

      All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
      All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
      All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
      All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy……..All work……….and…

    • Nutjob: i wish i could…But some things worry me

      1. Franks support to those crazy ridiculous debunked lies
      2. The obvious unstable mental state of a few around here (Anonymaker , Shadow and the other bully clown (who was bullied).

      I’m worried more about Allison’s safety than the BS accusation they blow.

      People like Frank are real enablers with their lies on weak mind conspirationists…I’m sure Shadowstate and Anonymaker trully Believe they are right.
      They Don’t even try to prove anything (well, they never tried…it’s funnier to accuse)

      But that doesn’t mean i’m not tired of all this.

      I could ,technically, just read and just check their is Nothing more worrying than a 60 year old idiot and a middle aged mythoman and pseudo analyst.
      But it’s hard to some people around believing their BS (especially with Anonymaker who use the Truth only to twist it into an horror fiction).

  • Not surprisingly nothing new here. And please do not confuse those of us who are just sick of the sight of this woman with her fans or apologists. In the pantheon of criminal actors in New York City or State, believe me, she is small potatoes and has already been convicted.

    The biggest criminal currently at large in NYC resides at Gracie Mansion. His wife should be joining Penn and Teller in Vegas any time soon, having made nearly a billion dollars of taxpayer money disappear.

    On the positive side, Shadowstate might have a future with Century 21, assuming of course that we get Scotty J’s assurance that C21 is not an MLM.

    • I don’t have a problem with MLMs, I have a problem with MLM scams. The two largest components of what makes an MLM an MLM scam are described below in my standard message:

      Do your part and submit a complaint to the FTC at and forward the below John Oliver video link to everyone you know, except current Amway IBOs, and encourage them to do the same, and so on, à la network marketing/MLM. If you don’t, then you’re part of the problem:

      Amway has 2 major problems, and most MLMs have at least one of these issues:

      1. The products are overpriced, which makes them almost impossible to sell to customers and results in Amway being an illegal pyramid, according to the FTC and SEC websites and previous court decisions; and

      2. The Tool Scam is hidden profit for the top level distributors only, and the vast majority of distributors operate at a net loss as a result. This is RICO fraud.

      For recent examples, google “FTC” along with the following companies, one at a time: FHTM, BurnLounge, Zeek, TelexFree, Vemma, and Herbalife. Make a complaint on the FTC website:

      Although there is no federal law defining pyramid schemes, the FTC has a long and successful track record of using its Section 5 law prohibiting “unfair and deceptive” business practices to go after MLM scams: which states, in part, “Not all multilevel marketing plans are legitimate. If the money you make is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate multilevel marketing plan. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s probably not. It could be a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of participants lose money.”

      Read about these and much more at these websites: and, and email to help shut down Amway and other MLM scams.

      Watch this video about Amway and other MLM scams, then forward it to everyone you know, except for current Amway IBOs, and encourage them to do the same. When enough people know, these scams will collapse:

      English version:

      Spanish version:

      Also, Century 21 is operated as a franchise model, not as an MLM. Franchises require a lot more disclosure to prospects than MLMs do.

      • “I don’t have a problem with MLMs, I have a problem with MLM scams.”

        Scott, Scott, Scott!
        You still have not learned your lesson, have you?
        All Multi Level Marketing schemes are SCAMS because the world runs out of new suckers to lure into the fraud.

        • If it were that simple, the government would simply shut down all MLMs. When is the world going to run out of “new suckers?” After all, there are thousands of MLMs and Amway alone has been around for 60 years. Your stupidity is why MLM scams are still around.

    • “The biggest criminal currently at large in NYC resides at Gracie Mansion. ”

      Bill De Blasio is a fool who would have a hard time being elected dog catcher in any place but New York City.

      The biggest criminals in New York State are the Arkansas grifters known as the Clinton gang.

      Bill and Hillary run the Clinton Foundation, a huge slush fund used to expand the Clinton gang’s influence world wide.
      Bill Clinton is implicated in Epstein’s pedophile ring and Hillary received illegal financing from Legatus Clare Bronfman of the NXIVM gang.

      Chelsea Clinton is waiting in the wings to become Senator once a vacancy develops in the New York Congressional delegation.
      Chelsea’s father in law Ed Mezvinsky is a disgraced former Congressman from Iowa who swindled people in a Nigerian. money scam out of ten million dollars.

      “Criminal activities
      In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Mezvinsky, who had been working as an attorney at the time, was funneling embezzled and fraudulently obtained money to West African con men after falling victim to an online advance-fee scam.”

  • Shadowclown has solved the mystery and revealed my true identity. But can he solve the greater mystery of why he is incapable of love?

    • Men don’t talk about women the way Shadow talks about Allison. Even Frank doesn’t desecrate the Bronfman sisters the way Shadow goes after Mack. Shadow’s probably a young female. Older women would be far more understanding of what transpired. IMO

    • “Yolanda Cortez aka Nicki” Pray tell, why am I incapable of love?

      Was Allison loving when she lied to women about female empowerment through sexual slavery?
      Was Raniere loving when he sexually molested Rhiannon?
      Was Allison loving when she openly lied about Raniere being a child molester?
      Was Raniere loving when he had the women line up to give him “group fellatio”?

      Yolanda, aka Nicki, did those pictures of 7 Generals Way bring back fond memories of cold nights warmed by a glowing cauterizing pen?
      Yolanda, aka Nicki, tell us what the smell of burning flesh is like.

      Yolanda, aka Nicki, tell us what your definition of love is.
      Must love always be tied with sex?
      Should not love also include respect for the other person?

      Is the soldier who gives his life for a comrade not committing an act of love?
      Is the teacher who tries to educate her students not engaged in an act of love?
      Is a doctor who tries to heal the sick not engaged in a great act of love?
      Is a woman who feeds the starving not engaged in a great act of love?
      Is a parent who tries to keep his child from harm engaged in an act of love?
      Did not Catherine Oxenberg commit an act of love when she tried to rescue her child from the clutches of Allison Mack?
      Are there not great acts of love that have absolutely nothing to do with sexual gratification?

      Was it an act of love for Lauren to lock up a woman in a room for almost two years because she would not have sex with Raniere?
      Was it an act of love for Nancy to hack into Rick Ross’ computer and steal his password?
      Was it an act of love for NXIVM members to plant illegal porn on Joe Tighe’s computer and frame him?
      Was it an act of love for Clare to sue Rick Ross into bankruptcy?

      You know, Nicki, that there are all kinds of clowns.
      There are funny clowns and happy clowns.
      There are scary clowns who frighten children.
      In Chicago we have all kinds of clowns.
      We even had a clown named Joey the Clown Lombardo.
      Even Joey the Clown’s lawyer admitted that there is nothing funny about what Joey the Clown does.
      Where is Joey the Clown now?
      Florence Colorado Federal Prison on 23 hour per day lock down and that is how he’ll spend the rest of his life.
      What did Joey the Clown do to earn that sentence?


      Juice Loans



      Yolanda, aka Nicki, what kind of clown do you want to be?
      A clown that makes people laugh or a clown that makes people cry?
