This is that time at the end of the welfare cycle, after a weekend, said funds spent on crack, etc., and “frustration” sets in. At approximately 10:22 p.m. I proceeded from Room 404 to the kitchen and no sooner had locked my door than the door to the kitchen was prematurely shut as I rushed to see who had done same and followed the sound of someone walking away down the hall, the only person present was angry that I had (finally) made the inference that he had been the culprit angrily saying that I didn’t actually see him shut the door, and following me to the front desk as I reported same and to get the door reopened. He followed me up the stairwell and also threatened “to get me on the street”, the foregoing all of which had been related to the desk clerk. The subject perpetrator is a black male, approximately 6 foot tall, slender in build, with some of his front teeth missing (lower) and I believe occupies room 416. This is not the first time someone (often) locked the kitchen by closing the door before hours expired. The problem could, as I suggested, be rectified by removing the latch mechanism (not the dead bolt) which does not require a key to trigger, unlike the dead bolt which is locked for the evening after hours.

This is that time at the end of the welfare cycle, after a weekend, said funds spent on crack, etc., and “frustration” sets in. I write this to the landlord since the on-duty personnel said he would no longer open the kitchen after the animals (often) locked same and closed the door before hours expired. The other on-duty person had said he doesn’t mind reopening said door – hence no complaint. The problem could, as I suggested, be rectified by removing the latch mechanism (not the dead bolt) which does not require a key to trigger, unlike the dead bolt which is locked for the evening after hours.
There is presently and consistently substantial drug dealing in front of the building. On one occasion, in April, 2005, I waited in front of the building for the DHL truck which was to pick up a rather large box of documents. After some time passed, as well as suspicious looks toward me, I was approached by a negroe who rather curtly asked what I was doing (on the public sidewalk in front of the St. Marks Hotel) to which I responded that I was awaiting the DHL courier, to which his retort was that he was concerned “that there was a white boy (me) where he was taking a penitentiary risk trying to make a few extra bucks”. The problems nationwide with these groups including illegal immigrants is widely known though politically incorrect to discuss.
