PHOTO OF THE DAY: AFTER 42 YEARS, A DOORMAN’S LAST DAY

Pedro Rodriguez

It’s Pedro Rodriguez’s last day as a doorman at 10 West 74th Street, and he tells resident Carol Colitti Levine
that he’ll miss the job.

“He started in 1975 and says that for all those years he has loved the tenants in the building who “although not rich or famous are hard working nice people”.  He will especially miss the kids.

My husband and I moved from Massachusetts to the building last year. Pedro’s smile welcomed us as we arrived and since then every day. We will miss him.

We saluted another retiring doorman a few weeks ago.

      1-BRs rent for over $4,000, and 3-BRs for nearly $10K a month. Maybe “not rich” by CPW standards, but plenty comfortable…

      Good to see someone who enjoyed their job!

      I lived in that building from 1970 through 1991. I remember when Pedro first came on the job. He was always helpful and friendly. Congratulations on your retirement, Pedro, and enjoy what I hope will be a long rest of your life.
