Doorman of NYC building claims he was fired for being 'too nice' to tenants

Nice doormen finish last.

Ralph Body was booted from a luxe Long Island City apartment building — for being too accommodating to its well-heeled tenants, he told The Post.

Body, 41, said he “gave his life” to the glimmering Queens tower called 27 on 27th ever since it opened two years ago a few blocks from the East River.

He didn’t just hold the door. He did anything and everything residents asked him to do — check on pets, clean litter boxes, water plants, hold packages, even show $4,200 apartments to new tenants if need be, he said.

“Everything I did, somebody asked me to do, or there was a need for it,” Body said.

But the door suddenly slammed shut on the collegial “Melrose Place”-like atmosphere last Sunday, when the staffing company that placed him at the posh building told him “upper management” wanted him out, he said.

“They said, ‘We know you did it for the right reasons, but unfortunately . . . you’re too nice to the tenants.’”
