NYC Real(i)ty Speak: When the new people overtip the super, you kinda notice
Most New Yorkers know to give the super a little something extra when moving in as a goodwill gesture toward a future of speedy repairs and other assistance. You know your new next-door neighbor tipped really well when...
- Your super walks their 5 King Charles Cavalier Spaniels twice a day
- Ever since that unmarked box from Gracious Home got delivered, you don't see the neighbors in the laundry room anymore
- Your super knocks over the doorman to let your neighbors in and out of the building himself
- He also delivers their packages personally
- It's been two months of Saturday renovations next door and still counting
