We may be moving. Mostly because of crackheads.
The top floor of our building has been the source of much noise, destruction and police visitation for a bit over a year now. For several months, almost every night would feature some guy hammering on the door and/or ringing our doorbell in an attempt to get into the building to go to the top floor. During the day, and sometimes night, when whoever it was would get in, and if couldn't get inside the apartment they wanted, would yell and hammer on the door for anywhere from 15 minutes to half an hour. The rare times I went to answer the door, I did so with a weapon in hand.
About a week or so ago, there was a loud crash. The next morning I heard sounds of glass shards being thrown around. Upon investigating, I found the superintendant picking up the remains of the shattered full-length glass front entrance door. I asked him what was going on, and soon found out that he had kicked out the denizens of the top floor apartment. It turns out that the lease-holder has actually been in jail for about four months, and the people in there were squatters. Crackhead squatters. Approximately twelve of them, in fact.
They still come around and still try to get in, hence the broken glass. The superintendant had replaced the door, but...
They've broken it again tonight. One of my roommates apparently took a picture of the guy who did it, and contacted the police about it. After talking to the police for some time, he's barred our own door from opening with 2x4 wood boards. My other roommate says we shall move out.
