That’s because the specially designed ride nicknamed “The Heat” includes a lounge with a bar, a movie room with a 100-inch screen, marble floors, offices for 30 people including assistants and writing staff, a large bedroom and all-granite bathroom. It’s 53 feet long, has 22 wheels and weights around 30 tons. It’s also annoying the residents. They say it’s an eyesore and that the gas smell that comes from it is horrid. Hm, smells more like jealousy to me.
“It looks bigger than my apartment!” said Brigette Moreno, 22, who lives above where the trailer was docked yesterday.
“The smell that comes along with it is disgusting. It’s like living in a gas station. I really like Will Smith, but I would be embarrassed if that was my trailer. A little modesty goes a long way.”
And shop owners say the monstrosity is burning a hole in their bottom lines.
“This is killing our business,” moaned Anessa Rahman, the co-owner of nearby Greene Street Antiques.
She said that since the trailer arrived, her business has been a shadow of its usual self.
“We’ve been calling 311, to no avail,” she sighed.
Note that Will Smith is renting a luxury apartment nearby. It’s a five bedroom, 6.5 bath, $25,000 per month apartment. Oh but it’s a mile away which is, like, an eternity in New York time. Almost 20 minutes walking! The whole point of being a celebrity is you don’t have to be a normal person. I mean, what’s the point of being rich and famous if you can’t shove your money in people’s faces?
