Funny & Strange Notes Neighbors Left in Apartment Building Lobbies
When you live in an 8th floor walk-up with dozens of other tenants, the blaring noise of a 4 a.m. rager can come from anywhere. What are you going to do? Knock on every single door until you find the culprit? No. Most will either grit their teeth and deal, or leave a threatening note somewhere near the building entrance. And sometimes those moments of visceral frustration can inspire some real poetry.
Thanks to the impressive popularity of @whatisnewyork, hundreds of renters regularly send the account all the hilariously weird and passive aggressive notes they find in the apartment complex lobbies of New York City. Seeing these notes all in one place really paints a picture of the woes of renting in a tenement full of high-strung, stressed-out, irritable people. Though, to be fair, not all the notes are full of rage. Some bold neighbors use lobbies, laundry rooms, and elevators as their personal bulletin boards for romantic missed connections.
