A new day at Westbeth

There is a beeping noise coming from outside now for about 2 hours. It's really annoying and it's loudest right by the best part of the apartment...the window. Yes, it's a dirty window, but the pigeons have caused havoc on the ledge and the dirt serves as a buffer. I have to clean the ledge outside about once a week, dumping buckets of hot sudsy water and scraping pigeon poop down 9 stories with a utility broom . If you're ever on Washington Street between Bank and Bethune, I would suggest walking on the East side.

I can usually catch my neighbor Kathryn next door doing the same thing. We love to talk and complain about it while we both scrub away our anger at Management. We've complained for over 2 years, and the best they have done is glue a wooden owl and apply netting on the opposite side of the building to force the pigeons in this direction. I've given them a detailed explanation of the pigeon location, but it seems to be ignored. When I moved in to Westbeth, I was once was told to be careful and not let things get to me like many tenants here have done. That advice hasn't worked.
