I posted about the hoarder house on 13th St. several weeks ago. Later in the month, it became a topic of conversation on Brownstoner, & today NBC News Channel 4 made it a morning news story. The story is uncomfortable watching. Clearly that is one amazing pile of garbage, and no-one would want to live next to it. Clearly "Nick" did not want to talk to reporters. Still, I wish the report had contained something a little gentler about his circumstances, perhaps a word or two from an older neighbor who'd known him or his family in better days. Just a hint of kindness.
