What Will the Neighbor's Think?

A ritzy-titsy antiques dealer in Manhattan is suing homeless people for $1 million dollars in damages "claiming that they are disrupting his business by using the sidewalk outside his high-end East Side store as a urinal, a spittoon and an occasional dressing room."
"...the suit also asks for a restraining order requiring them to stay at least 100 feet from the store. The suit notes that the antiques dealer is located “within the heart of New York’s most exclusive Madison Avenue shopping district,” with neighbors like Gucci, Chanel and Prada."
Oh for heaven's sake, their customers never look below their noses. And since when have homeless people sleeping on grates ever stopped someone in Manhattan from shopping?
