Hoarders: Lower East Side edition

Jul.July 16, 2017 12:30 PM

This one goes out to all the supers. Sure, they may not always do the best work and they might seem to never be around when you need them, but occasionally they are asked to do some true dirty work — and at least one Lower East Side superintendent has risen to the occasion.

The super of an unidentified Lower East Side building recently posted a video of a hoarder’s apartment where cockroaches, rotting rubbish and a cat’s corpse can all be seen, according to the New York Post.

“Whatever you’ve seen, you’ve never seen nothing like this,” superintendent Martin Fernandez says in the YouTube clip.

Fernandez says the tenant was pretty clean until two years ago, when he began hoarding. The tenant was eventually evicted after a more than one-year court battle, leaving Fernandez to deal with the aftermath.

Check out the carnage below.
