Gotham Gossipist: The One Where Everyone Hates David Schwimmer

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — David Schwimmer incurred the wrath of the East Village earlier this year when he demolished a 19th century brownstone up for Historical Landmark status to build a 6-story mansion on East Sixth Street.

Well, you know what they say about Karma.

According DNAinfo.com, it sure hasn’t take much time to come around and bite Schwimmer in the…building.

A man was struck and injured by falling debris from his building site on Tuesday.  Apparently the scaffolding surrounding the structure couldn’t effectively contain the rubble.  The man was taken to  Bellevue Hospital with an arm injury.

Who wants to start a lawsuit countdown?

It looks like the former ‘Friends’ star hasn’t made any headway in befriending his neighbors.

A 62-year-old woman who has lived on the block for 37 years told DNAinfo, “Mr. Bigshot made a mistake tearing down this building,” she said. “He paid a pretty penny and built some shiny silver thing. He’s like a wart on the block. He doesn’t belong here.”

Good luck with that housewarming party, Dave.
