What it’s Like Living Near the Norfolk Street ‘Animal House’ [VIDEO]

Posted on: February 7th, 2018 at 5:00 am by

To look at 180 Norfolk Street, you wouldn’t otherwise think anything of it. The property is a relatively non-descript building two doors down from the Angel Orensanz Center. On the contrary. Readers tell us that behind the brick facade is a purported frat house some are now calling “Animal House.”

We hear that, for the last several months, the weekend parties go all hours, even after the cops allegedly show up to shut things down. There are also nicknamed residents like the “underwear boy” who was recently heard yelling at other residents, “My lawyer will talk to your lawyer.”

Now some video of the so-called Animal House is surfacing – via sleepless neighbors – showing the typical behavior at 180 Norfolk Street. Here, we see a recap of SantaCon shenanigans by these residents. The three-minute clip is a brief month-in-the-life of residents who dwell within earshot of this madness. It includes narrative cards to help the story along, and also points out that all audio/video was captured with a consumer-grade camera behind a closed window.

In the video’s description, the angry tenant wrote a scathing commentary:

180 Norfolk Street is not an address in NYC Lower East Side. It is a Frat House terrorizing the entire neighborhood.

SantaCon 2017 was a truly special day. They almost burned the place to the ground had someone not called 9-1-1. Every night is Santa Con at 180 Norfolk Street!

Go back home you losers! Tell mommy and daddy to save their money–admit you are poor excuses for human-beings.
