Leases often contain a clause saying you can be evicted if you disturb the neighbors. Mostly hypothetical question inside. [more inside]

In between trash days -- Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday -- people in neighboring apartments deposit their trash on the first floor landing, outside the door to my apartment. I expected the super to put a stop to this practice but it turns out he condones it. I asked him to fix this and he said he'd try but I'm not sure he will. There are no trash cans or anything, just trash bags piled up. Is this against any NYC codes? How should I proceed?

Our next door neighbors (who we really like a lot) are celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary. The traditional gift for no. 10 is aluminum/tin. What would be a fun/useful/romantic/cool gift for us to get them based on this theme/material? Budget = around $50.

Neighbors be damned, is there any reason to not
have a lawn of crabgrass as opposed to normal grass? And, if not, where can I get some seed?

I'm considering trying Dance Dance Revolution as a way of tricking myself into exercising more. I have two specific questions that I am having difficulty finding answers to:
1) Can you play it in a second floor apartment without being a bad upstairs neighbor? If yes, any specific techniques or tips?
2) Assuming yes to 1, anything I should know about using a pad on top of carpet? I've seen recommendations to duct tape it down, etc., but this sounds a little extreme (not to mention ugly).

My girlfriend and I live in a small 4-unit apartment building in a residential part of Berkeley. Our neighbor, who lives in the house next door, just bitched her out for leaving her car parked on the curb adjoining his driveway. Her car, a small, gas-efficient economy car, is in perfect order, and was correctly parked, but she'd overstayed Berkeley's 72-consecutive-hour limit by a day or two, and he was miffed. He parks in his own garage, and seems to have no pity for her, even though the reason her car rarely moves is that she takes public transit to class daily. Anything we can do about this? How seriously would you take his threat to have the car towed next time? [more inside]
