I have been living in NYC for 25 years. For the first time, I have a problem that seems to be hard to solve. I live on St. Marks Place between 2nd and 3rd.
For the past 6 weeks I’ve had a homeless man shit on the front door of my building. NOBODY wants to deal with it. 311, 911, etc just don’t care. I get it too, there are a lot bigger issues going on.
But see, it’s a quality of life issue for both me and my neighbors and this sub human of a homeless man. It’s not fun starting your day off when you walk out of your building to greet the world and it kicks off with a pile of shit, the stench and flies. I have caught the Doorshitter in action!
I was nice to him the first time. I told him he must stop and if he doesn’t I will take action. The Mad Crapper has continued his shitty assault on my door. I will stop this ace of a man dropping deuces if it’s the last thing I do!
I have now taken action….
• I have a photo of this man. I’ve met with all the shop owners on St, Marks between 2nd and 3rd. Everybody has an issue with him. When he’s spotted…they will point and scream “DOORSHITTER, STAY OFF OUR BLOCK”.
• I don’t want to hurt this man; I do want to freak him out so he’s scared to come back. Yesterday I had an encounter with The Mad Crapper. I screamed at him and followed him for blocks yelling things such as”STOP SHITTING ON MY DOOR”, WHY DO YOU SHIT ON MY DOOR”. “HEY, EVERYBODY LOOK, THIS MAN SHITS ON MY DOOR”, Etc. Needless to say he was freaked out.
• I am on a one-man flyer campaign. The goal here is to shame this man. It may be hard though because how can he have shame if he shits on doors. Attached is the flyer I have been hanging on St. Marks place. People have been taking them because they think it’s funny or think I’m a new street artist.
• I don’t want this problem to escalate I want this shot to stop. PLEASE, help me if you can.
As far as future steps, I’m unsure what to do…
Yes, this problem is funny but at the same time it stinks. It’s shitty and a real battle.
Jordy VS The Doorshitter…..it’s on!
