In the first episode of our new Renters Week video series, real-life tenants in Brooklyn and Manhattan recount the passive-aggressive, hilarious, and otherwise interesting notes received from roommates, neighbors, landlords, and more.
It's New York, after all, so everyone's living in close quarters. Inevitably, tenants have all kinds of wacky complaints, many of which result in ludicrous lawsuits. From neighborly love letters in Park Slope to complaints about hearing a song on repeat in Harlem, the silly tales of these city dwellers are sure to entertainbut it can also put your own rental experiences into perspective. (And thank goodness for that little ounce of schadenfreude.)
