Take your neighbor to Housing Court

It's about time somone came up with a good idea. On many streets in the city, there is that one house that has all of the neighbors talking. Honking horns late at night, loud parties, pets running around uncontrolled. Drug customers pulling up in front of the house like it's a McDonalds drive-thru. Now, fed up neighbors can take their cases directly to housing court-themselves:

A nuisance-abatement law proposed by City Housing Court Judge Henry J. Nowak would allow residents to bring the complaints into Housing Court — without relying on city inspectors or lawyers, and even if no property code violation can be found.

Law abiding neighbors should not have to put up with scumbags. There's no other nice way to put it. Many people are poor or living with slightly less. However, this is no excuse to act like trash. This is a very good idea. Maybe, the landlords will have to accept more responsibility as to who they rent to also. I won't use this court because I'm too lazy. However, I hope some of my more motivated neighbors will.
