Upper East Side homeless ‘can tipper’ has caused unchecked mayhem for years, frustrating neighbors
Sanitation Department officials, meanwhile, declined to answer questions about how they are handling the man’s antics, and twice referred the News to city Department of Homeless Services.
Homeless Services did not respond to inquiries.
Councilman Ben Kallos (D-Upper East Side) is frustrated and noted that he successfully pushed the city to spend $250,000 for 250 heavy duty trash in the neighborhood.
“It’s a little infuriating to have someone running around knocking them over,” he said. “There is a problem with the city when someone is being allowed to go out there and destroy property worth thousands of dollars. We are failing our taxpayers.”
