The scaffolding has in front of our building appears to be a permanent fixture set up over a year ago. It has attracted homeless, drug dealers and other unwanted occurrences literally to tenants of the building’s doorstep.
The fire escape ladder being constantly lowered has only compounded the issue. It has lead to many concerns from tenants fearing break-ins to their apartments to fires. The picture below on the left actually shows a strange man coming down the fire escape ladder August 15, 2020. The picture in the middle, taken January 2, 2020, shows once again it being lowered. The last picture on right taken January 9th 2020, solidifies pattern of its frequent occurrence.
