Alnaldo Colon, a doorman at 41 West 72nd street who is loved by humans and animals alike.
This year’s Brick Underground tipping survey indicates that, at the high end, renters are often more generous than buyers when it comes to tipping doormen and other building staff. The survey isn’t scientific, but it’s always chock full of good information and worth a look.
Eleven percent of renters in doorman buildings tip a cumulative total of at least $2,500, versus 5% of owners in doorman buildings, according to the survey.
That said, the numbers can be sliced and diced in various ways — more buyers than renters spent at least $1,000 on tips.
The average tipping range for a doorman was $25 -$150, and $75-$175 for a super, the site reported. Garage attendants tend to receive $25-$75.
