steve guttenberg is outside. they are filming a movie in an apartment at 414 e 73rd – 2 buildings down. i will try to get photos. last night “no parking” signs were posted on the trees along the block. the problem is, that if you parked your car on the side that is good for friday, you would have no way of knowing that the signs were posted last night and you would also have every reason to believe your car was legally parked through the weekend. when the legally parked people come for their cars, they will have been towed. this is not the first time i’ve seen this happen.
apparently the girl from the fifth floor with the bedbugs (oct 21 post), has ordered a new mattress and boxspring. it is a queen size – the same as her old and infested set. probably the same size as most of the people who live on the second through fifth floors. she and the delivery men as well as the queen size mattress and queen size box spring have been outside my door in the hallway for the last 45 minutes or so. when i came back in from stalking steve they were still there. i asked what the problem was and one of the delivery guys said “there was no way the mattresses would fit up the stairs.”
my neighbors directly across the street are in jail. an attractive and totally normal looking couple from 425 e. 73rd street. she got arrested for a string of burglarys on the upper east side including one in her own building. after they caught her red-handed leaving an apartment on 82nd street with her loot, the cops went to her apartment to see if they could recover any of the items stolen from other apartments in the last few weeks. i don’t know if they found any stolen property but the bag of heroin was cause to arrest her boyfriend. there is now an available one bedroom apartment available if anyone is looking. . .
finally, “the smoker” got a new outfit. this is big news. the black sweat pants are not much of a stretch from the ones she has been wearing every single day for the last 3 years, but they do have a pink stripe down the side. like the old pants, they are 2″ too short.
