A resident of Crown Heights who rented out an apartment for guests visiting New York has complained about the state in which it was left.
He filmed a tour of the apartment immediately after the bochurim had left back to Israel, showing the floors filled with empty bottles, wrappers, shopping bags, clothing and boxes.
“I agreed with them that they will leave the apartment clean,” he said. “Now I don’t have anyone to talk to. This is how it looks after we open our homes in the neighborhood with a full heart.”
His complaint, first posted on the Chabad news website in Hebrew COL.org.il, wasn’t fully received with understanding.
“Big deal,” one person commented. “Get a broom and it’s clean. One sweep and it’s done.”
Another suggested that when payment is received for the rental, “it is acceptable to take the credit card info in case there are damages. If you didn’t do that, you only have yourself to blame.”
Other readers used the opportunity to complain about the “huge amounts” being asked for rental apartments in Crown Heights, despite the high demand.
