Man Sues Seward Park Co-Op Neighbor for Years of Urine Dumping

Posted on: March 26th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

For years, his fourth floor abode inside the Seward Park Co-op at 212 East Broadway was the recipient of golden showers, though he didn’t know it.  Only that the fresh smell of urine was always prevalent.  Resident Gary Strum finally discovered something was amiss when, in 2009, he removed a bedroom AC unit and realized the stench was even more pungent.

Turns out his elderly upstairs neighbor on twelve had been dumping his piss pot out the window all this time. This led to the installation of surveillance equipment outside the window and an amateur stakeout.  The deed was allegedly caught it on tape.  The Post reports that Strum is now filing suit against Spielberg, Seward Park Cooperative, and property-management company Charles Greenthal, seeking $250,000 in damages for emotional distress.

Strum believes that the elderly neighbor would pour out his piss whenever the health aide wasn’t home.
