Homeless Sued For All They’re Worth

Written by Kari Milchman on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Posts.


The New York Sun reports that an Upper East Side antique dealer is suing four homeless people for driving away business. Exactly what he expects to get we’re not sure. Apparently, potential buyers are too offended by dirty clothes and pools of piss to concentrate on new acquisitions for their drawing rooms. The store, Karl Kemp & Associates Antiques, is located near 69th Street on Madison Ave., which—the Sun reminds us—sits amongst Gucci, Chanel and Prada stores. The dealer has allegedly asked a Manhattan Supreme Court judge to keep the homeless guys at least 100 feet away. ’Cause then we can pretend like they don’t exist and we’ll feel less guilty when we spend $1,550 on a new cushion for Princess Fifi to nap on.
