Neighbors Bill Hotel For Loud Late-Night Parties
April 23, 2013 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
NEW YORK, (UPI) – Neighbors of the noisy Gansevoort Park Avenue in New York said they are sending mock bills to the hotel to get compensation for their lost sleep.
Residents of the Murray Hill neighborhood said the hotel’s loud parties often keep them up until 4 a.m., and six of the residents said they have sent official-looking mock invoices to the hotel seeking $1,000 for each hour of lost sleep, the New York Post reported Monday.
The group said their bills totaled $21,350 for April 14, the night of a particularly wild celebration at the hotel.
“It’s a circus. The situation is absolutely unbearable,” neighbor Mario Messina said.
“They give great lip service, but the only thing they pay attention to is their wallets,” Messina said of hotel executives.
Hotel representatives did not respond to calls and emails requesting comments.
