Super holds parties in the basement beneath our apartment
We are truly desperate and hope to get some help from this forum. This is our situation:
For more than four years the super of our apartment building in Harlem, New York, has been holding parties beneath our ground floor apartment that faces out the back of the building. The apartment below us is part of the basement and no one lives there. The super uses the space to have parties until three or four in the morning with extremely loud music that we can not only hear, but feel.
We have called the cops multiple times, stating each time that we've called multiple times and exhausted all other options, with them promising us that they'd come this time, they never do.
We have called our management office and they know it is the super holding the parties and they also told us that we aren't the only tenants complaining about the parties. They assure us each time that it won't happen again, but, especially today, on Christmas, of all days, it is happening once again.
They not only play loud music, but they grill right beneath our window. We have not talked to the super directly, wanting to avoid any awkward feelings.
We are desperate. Today, for the first time, we've taken to banging the broom against the floor.
What should we do? I am considering having a lawyer friend of mine writing a letter, writing to the police department/precinct, writing to my representative.
It is seriously affecting our quality of life here, and we are miserable about it. Any help is greatly appreciated.
