In June, the boutique Public Hotel opened on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, “luxury for all.” What neighborhood residents say they’ve actually brought is a hoard of insatiable, horny guests who have sex with the blinds open, in full view of the city.
and both spoke to several tenants in the adjacent public-housing building, who went into great detail about what they saw at Public. Some highlights:
“Guys are together, girls and girls are together. They don’t even pull the shades down.”
“You see them having sex all the time, hands on the window. Not like I’m a peeping Tom, but from the corner of my eye, you can see this going on four times a week.”
“The other night, two people were doing it. If my sons were little, I would be mortified.”
“He got up, and he was standing there [masturbating.]”
Coincidentally, this sounds like what everyone who hasn’t been to New York imagines is happening in every New York building, all the time.
