A new tourist repelling measure was recently taken at the Hells Angel's headquarters on East 3rd Street, and now the NY Post has taken a visit over there, declaring even tourists aren't intimidated by the group anymore. Ooooh burn, Angels.

A super across the street told the paper, "[The Angels] do a pretty good job of keeping an eye on things—they have a better reputation than the cops here—so who is going to begrudge them a bench?" Enter: out of town pastry chef! 23-year-old Jana Kern, staying at the aforementioned hotel, says, "I don't think it's very neighborly of them." (Breaking: Hells Angels are not neighborly!)

His guests opinion's aside, hotel manager Mario Cornejo says, "we have a very good relationship with the Hells Angels, and we want to do everything we possibly can to keep it that way." The hotel has even put a sign in their lobby asking guests to avoid the bench. Now, about that stoop...
