Pee in front of my doorMar 05, 2019

I live in an Apartment building not a condo nor a co-op, forgive me if this is not the proper channel to discuss my issue, truthfully I don't know where else to post this. With that being said, I am having issues where there are one or more non residents in my building peeing in the corner of a stairwell, my apartment door is less than 2 feet away from that very corner. My super knows this is an issue because his door for his cleaning tools is literally right in that corner. This has been going on for months now, and it is come to the point that the smell of the pee is coming into my apartment and is slowly but surely becoming a health hazard for my family. What can be done in this case, we are a long time renter on the property (20+ years)?

pee - DP Mar 06, 2019

Have you documented this—does your building have security cameras? If not, I would get them. This is a quality of life issue that if left untended can easily turn into something even more serious and dangerous. I would start there. If you have an idea who's doing it, call 911, call your local precinct. Also, go to your local community board meeting, and ask their advice. If your apt. is so close to where this is taking place, keep your ears open and when you hear someone out there, document it yourself. Take pictures. Engage your neighbors to be on the lookout and report it as well. Good luck.
