Hoarding garbage in his house
The house at 196 13th street in posh Park Slope is so disgusting, so smelly, and so unsanitary that neighbors want to move. The brownstone, between 3rd and 4th avenue, is covered in trash, buckets of refuse, and cats.
Neighbors say the owner is a hoarder and has received several summonses from the City but continues to collect garbage anyway.
After PIX11 News sent the Department of Sanitation pictures of the home, they issued him a "Dirty Area Summons" for a hundred dollars. Sanitation also promised to continue to monitor the situation.
Shouldn't the Dept of Health be involved at this point?
