NEW YORK (PIX11) – It’s one of the city’s most upscale neighborhoods.

But things may be going south for the Upper West Side, now that more and more motor homes and RVs have invaded the area.

People who live there are not happy.

The owner of one of the RVs, an ’84 Chevy Pathfinder, is rabbi Steve Blumberg.

He says he bought the mobile home in 2007 for $8,000 after he lost his apartment in the Bronx.

He now lives rent free on 74th Street, and says his snobby neighbors need to lighten up!

Rabbi Blumberg told PIX11 that if his neighbors had come to him in a polite way and asked him to fix up the RV or move it, he would have happily obliged.

The rabbi says that the backlash against his home his just “middle class snootiness.”

Leaving a mobile home on a city street for more than 24 hours is illegal, according to a Department of Transportation spokesperson.
