Crazy Neighbor

Holy sh*t, and I thought my neighbor the Laundry Queen was bad!

Is there any way you can maybe talk to his girlfriend and see what the hell is up with this guy? Does she know he's constantly buzzing your apartment? Is she sitting on their couch dressed like a wizard too, or maybe Puff the Magic Dragon?

I'm sorry....I really shouldn't laugh. This is a really crappy situation. You're doing the right thing by documenting everything you can. Do you know if you're the only ones that have to deal with him, or does he terrorize other tenants, too?

We're documenting everything. My building is rent stabilized, so it's a herculean task to actually kick someone out. Even worse if they are mentally ill, as I'm positive this guy is. I'm not as afraid of the guy as I was before, for some reason. Must be the outfit.

We want to move anyway, but we'll probably just use this to break our lease and get out sooner rather than later. The landlord doesn't want to get sued.

Newest Drama!

So, a few weeks have gone by and we haven't heard anything from the Wizard. This morning, he came up to our floor and starting pounding on the door of the apartment next to ours, yelling some nonsense about how there was Al Qaeda in his apartment and he had to get out. The guy that lives there is an elderly gentlemen, maybe in his 70s and he's pretty frail. His wife passed away a few months ago and he's not doing very well. Anyway, this made me mad, so I opened my door and told him to knock it off and go away, or I was going to call the cops again. The old man is yelling from inside his apartment that he's going to call the cops. I shut and lock my door and then he pounds on my door so hard that he cracked it! He also took my neighbor's doormat and through it out the window.

Meanwhile, I call the police and put on a pair of high heels and stomp around the apartment for a while, until the cops come. We tell them what's going on, how he broke our door and is randomly harassing the poor man next to us. While this is happening, the woman that lives next door to him crept up the stairs and starts to tell the police how he's made threats to her and she's terrified of him. They leave and go and knock on his door and for once, he actually opened it. Then they told him to knock it off, and that if they get called one more time they're going to arrest him.

A few hours later, we hear him outside putting up signs around the building. We go outside and start ripping them down. This is what they say:

ATTN: Tenants of #### ##th St.

There has been a lot of excessive noise coming from Apt. ## (our apartment). The bass is so loud, I feel it in my feet. I am alerting you that these sunds are not coming from my apartment.

Signed,
Tenant in B3

PS I apologize to everyone for banging on his door
Now, we don't even own a stereo, so I don't know what the heck he's talking about. While he's putting the notes up, my fiance and I start ripping them down and he runs away into his apartment. He must've gone to the copyshop and made about 50 copies of them My super lives on his floor and his wife opened the door to see what the fuss was about, along with a neighbor on each side, and again, we told him to knock it off. He whined that he had the right to put up signs and that us taking them down was an assault on him.

So, anyway, hopefully this will be the first move in actually getting the guy evicted. I wasn't aware that he was bothering other neighbors or anything.

Wow. Your life is definitely not dull, lol.

3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
He's probably mistaking the noises/voices in his head (and feet apparently) for music coming from your apartment. Be careful...that's the kind of person who can kill you...and it won't matter if you're right.
wow, that is insane. Hopefully he'll get arrested or evicted soon. But I would provoke him any further (with the stomping and stuff) It might just make it worse. you never know what those kind of people are capable of. I was living with a guy who had a psychotic break-through once, very scary.
You are definitely dealing with someone who is mentally ill. Most mentally ill people are not dangerous, but someone who is paranoid and frightened is more likely to be . . . and the way you describe his behavior, I am guessing that's what is going on.

Do you know any mental health professionals in your area who can advise you the best way to proceed (according to local statutes) to mobilizing officials to get him the help he needs? The police may very well be the best way -- I'd deal through them, and not directly with this poor fellow.

If he is indeed as ill as his behavior indicates, he is not in control of his actions and decisions as you and I might be. He is probably scared and overwhelmed and trying to make sense of the world as best he can. I'm not saying you should tolerate his behavior or adjust to it -- but stay calm, try not to do things that would escalate his reactions -- and let the police know you are concerned about his safety as well as your own. That might get their attention.
"Tell me, are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?"

I hope the fact that he cracked my door will be enough to get the landlord to move against him, but we'll see. If I can get the other tenants to actually complain, I'm sure things would go quicker.

You never know how they will intrepret anything. I took a psych. class in high school, the teacher told us about this one type of paranoia called "delusions of reference" where everything and anything is a conspiracy against them, even the rain is an attempt by "them" to keep him inside. although it was an amusing conversation in the class, it's not very amusing to be face-to-face with someone who actually has it and is focased on you.
