NYC man puts obscene photos in window to taunt immigrant family next door
A New York family from India said their neighbor has been posting pornographic photos in his window in an attempt to drive them away.
“He’s upset because some Indian guy moved in next door — that’s the basic thing,” said Sanjeev Aggurawal.
Aggurawal moved recently to Queen Village with his wife and 4-year-old son, and he said their neighbor places the photos so they can be seen from their home and the public sidewalk.
“My son, he’s four! My nephews are 7 and 9 and they come over and they see this,” Aggurawal said. “This is ridiculous — it has to stop.”
A reporter from WABC-TV spoke to the neighbor, who is known only as “Jimmy” to the Aggurawals, and asked him about the obscene photos.
“I’m drying them out, they got damp last night,” Jimmy said. “That’s my artwork.”
The reporter asked him if the images were intended to offend his neighbors, but the man declined comment.
“Get off my porch,” Jimmy said.
The Aggurawals have hung a sheet on their own porch to prevent their son, Piyush, from seeing the photos.
Neighbors have called the police, but they said the man takes them down before officers arrive but puts them back up after they leave.
“When I come outside, I’m afraid of him,” said Ranchan Aggurawal.
