Her neighbors don’t hate model and talk show/reality show Tyra Banks because she’s beautiful. They hate her because she is being an inconsiderate neighbor. Banks recently angered her neighbors-to-be thanks to construction work being done on her new abode at the luxurious Riverhouse in Battery Park City. According to The New York Post’s Page Six, Banks is merging four apartments into one huge duplex unit and the construction project has lasted six months beyond the intended schedule and neighbors have been calling the police over the matter.
Apparently, paint fumes are annoying other residents and the incessant drilling is making for some serious noise pollution indoors.
A rep for the Riverhouse said that Banks’ unit is “near completion.” Nothing like pissing off the locals before you move in.
How should Tyra Banks appease her angry neighbors for her overdue, noisy construction?
According to several sources in Riverhouse as well as numerous media outlets, Tyra Banks upon living in the neighborhood and is Â calling Battery Park City home.
Banks has recently closed on four units at the Riverhouse, located in the northern section of the neighborhood, for a cool $10 million. In true diva style Banks has commenced on construction to merge all four units into a single home for herself.
The constant construction and banging has not gone over well for her new neighbors — leading to several noise complaints to the police, according to an item in New York Post’s Page Six.
In defense of the diva, Battery Park City has been nothing but the mecca of new construction for the last 9 years… what’s a little more banging going to affect us anyhow? Surely after the construction has hammered in its last nail, neighbors will begin to tout that they live in the same building as Tyra Banks or, better yet, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Either way, welcome to the neighborhood, Tyra! So long as you don’t shut down the entire Whole Foods to shop at your leisure, we at BatteryParkCity.com will be glad to see you around.
