Legendary Lower East Side performance artist Reverend Jen has been evicted from her Orchard Street home.

This apartment also doubles as the location of the popular Troll Museum. No longer.

Building owner, and all around reviled landlord, Misrahi Realty, wielded some muscle by pushing Rev Jen curbside this week. It was reported that she hadn’t paid rent since last summer. A grinning City Marshal with served Jen, who, as the accompanying video illustrates, was only wearing a towel. The agent, caught on camera with badge, reportedly told Jen he wished he had a gun to deal with her.

Rev Jen seeks legal assistance to fight back in whatever capacity possible. She sent around the following press release to win supporters:

Reverend Jen, founder of the Lower East Side’s only Troll Museum has finally been evicted by her arch nemesis, Misrahi Realty, along with even greater douchebags, Lawyer Lawrence “We Evict Tenants Fast!” Silberman and Judgue Laurie Lau (who is currently under federal investigation.) But guess what’s not going to stop the Rev. from having fun or preventing the public from seeing the world’s most fabulous Troll Museum? Eviction and ensuing homelessness!

Come to the Troll Museum today from 10-4. Rev. has hundreds of books because she worked at the Tenement Museum bookstore for 12 years (an organization who took money from both Madoff and Sheldon Silver and might therefore be even more corrupt than Misrahi!) Also she likes books but they are too heavy to move to her cardboard box so they are yours FREE! Just come and get them and help Rev. pack things.

The City Marshal, who told an unarmed, half-naked Rev. that she had 3 minutes to leave her premises and told her he “wished” he had a gun, will now be the subject of a criminal case. But, for the time being, Jen needs manpower, boxes, a car, van, buggy, anything…and places for Reverend Jen Junior and Tenney to crash. There are other great items that are quite valuable and could be yours for a small fee. Despite the fact that “COURT ERROR” was written in bold letters on the court’s paperwork, Rev. and hundreds of other tenants who have gone in front of Judge Lau noticed she deliberately mixes up court dates, thus making it look as if tenants default on appearances. Grounds for immediate eviction, despite never being served papers. Oh, well.

The Lower East Side used to be a great neighborhood but has now turned into the greediest shitshow on earth. The Troll Museum was one of the final holdouts of bohemian culture. Now is your chance to get pictures of Downtown’s little gems. It’s been featured on television all over the world, in magazines and newspapers. But if everything is not removed by 4 PM today, it will be destroyed. So, come get it and help bohemia kiss the Lower East Side Goodbye.

Hope to see you at this depressing event.

Thanks,
The Management.
