New York Oddity

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Went with a friend yesterday to look at possible apts for her in Manhattan. We saw a lovely apt in upper Manhattan, but the neighborhood was iffy. She has 2 dogs and the landlord who was very nice said okay. He did want her to look at the lease though. We saw the oddest clause in the lease, and I kid you not.

"NO DEAD ANIMALS ALLOWED IN APARTMENT!!!

I never would have believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes...made us wonder about the other tenents. We thanked him and said adios!

Maybe the landlord opened the freezer section of a refrigator after the tenant moved out and found dead animals?

That is really odd. I would've been tempted to ask why that was in the lease. My guess would be that a former tenant had a stuffed pet in an apartment, and it grossed the landlord out. A friend's brother is a taxidermist, and she told me one time that a lot of his business is "preserving" deceased pets. I didn't really believe it till I saw something like that on TV. A poodle breeder had all her champions stuffed after they died and kept them in her house. She seemed rather wacky, since she also put them out on her patio when the weather was nice.
