I was the neighbor of the guy on 7th st. For 2.5 years. I ultimately had to move because no action was taken despite my constant complaints.

I commented on the first item, about Shuho Yagi, who was also called "The Shu;" he was the owner of 103 2nd Avenue, the restaurant at 2nd avenue and 6th street from approximately 1980 to 1990.
