Lenny Dykstra: Welcome To His Terrordome...

Lenny Dykstra accused of turning New Jersey neighborhood into 'a den of drugs and prostitution'

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be Lenny Dykstra’s neighbor, wonder no more. According to Dykstra’s neighbors in Linden, New Jersey, it’s not fun.

Dykstra, former centerfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets, owns a home in Linden. According ABC7 in New York, his neighbors say he’s been destroying the neighborhood and turning it into a “a den of drugs and prostitution.” ABC7 reported that up to 10 people have lived in Dykstra’s home at once, and it’s now being used as a boarding house. It’s not clear if Dykstra himself has also been residing there.

Neighbors and longtime residents of the Linden neighborhood have been calling police over disturbances at the house as well as “transient neighbors.” 10th Ward City Councilwoman Gretchen Hickey has also been calling the police about Dykstra’s boarding home, and gave ABC7 a litany of reasons why.

“The traffic here, the overdoses, the cars being towed, someone throwing yellow liquid out the second-floor window, the trash.”

Mayor Derek Armstead told ABC7 that rooming houses are not allowed in Linden, and “If he’s not in compliance with the current ordinances that are on the books, we will take him to task.” However, Hickey said that this has happened with Dykstra before, and now it’s happening again.

“After he was told to move everybody out, and he was fined, the next week, he also put again on social media advertising rooms for $1,000 a month,” she said.

This is just Dykstra’s latest legal woe. In 2018 he was accused of kidnapping and threatening to kill his Uber driver. When he was arrested, police found meth and cocaine in his duffel bag. He was charged with drug possession and making terroristic threats, and pled not guilty in October. Neither Dykstra or his lawyer have responded to these new accusations.

Dykstra escalates war with neighbors: Turned ‘ugly bitch into rock star’

Lenny Dykstra disputed complaints that he created a trash-strewn hellhole at his Linden, NJ, residence, instead claiming he turned the real estate into the “best house on the block.”

“I took an ugly bitch and made her into a beautiful rock star,” the former baseball star told The Post on Thursday.

“Maybe the other houses are jealous that I have the best house now.”

The World Series champ was responding to a report from NJ Advance Media where neighbors claimed the home on a quiet tree-lined street has been plagued with noise, trash, fights and illegal boarders.

“It all started when he moved in,” Linda Graham, who lives nearby, told the paper. “There’s been two overdoses. There’s been a scuffle on the front lawn. There’s been people who are here today, gone tomorrow. We don’t know who these people are and we are afraid.”

Dykstra said he heard about the overdose but was not there at the time
“It was a construction worker,” he said.

A neighbor also provided a picture with piles of trash in front of Dykstra’s home. But the former center fielder said the picture was misleading.

“The picture they picked was from trash day,” he said.

“Once a month in Linden you can put out the trash. I am OCD, so you’d think I’d have trash like that? That’s garbage day throwing out all stuff from the work I did to make this house livable.”

Dykstra said he has kicked out all the tenants, after being told that they were illegally boarding there — and has just one friend staying for free.

“They asked me to do something so I did it,” Dykstra said about removing the tenants. “I have a friend who stays here… We are in America. It’s my house.”

Dykstra has served more than six months in prison after pleading guilty in 2012 for bankruptcy fraud and other crimes.

Lenny Dykstra is ready to put New Jersey in his rearview mirror.

That’s what the former MLB great told NJ Advance Media during an exclusive tour Wednesday of his Linden home, where city housing inspectors doled out three summonses last year after neighbors accused Dykstra of running an illegal rooming house plagued by huge mounds of trash, rampant noise and as many as 10 guests at once.

“The house is going up for sale in two weeks,” Dykstra, 56, told the website. “Just needs a final paint. We’re now going to put the makeup on it. Linden’s a nice place, don’t get wrong, [but] my goal in life was not to wake up in Linden, New Jersey, every day.”

Dykstra, who bought the two-story home in 2017 for $353,000, dismissed allegations by neighbors and council members who claimed he rented out rooms in the Stockton Circle home for $1,000 apiece monthly, saying the bulk of his troubles have been caused by two specific neighbors, including one he has nicknamed “Silence of the Lambs.”

Dykstra did acknowledge, however, that police once responded to the home — an “ugly bitch” that he transformed into a rock star, according to an interview with The Post earlier this month — after receiving a report of a woman screaming. But that was just his overly vocal girlfriend and Dykstra having sex, he said.

“She’s a screamer,” Dykstra told NJ Advance Media.

Dykstra is now suing the home’s seller and broker after he claims he was misled about its condition. After being told it only needed “some paint and TLC,” Dykstra said he poured more than $200,000 into renovations to make it suitable for living, including new plumbing, electrical wiring and other needed upgrades.

“You couldn’t use the bathrooms in this house before,” Dykstra said. “There were no toilets.”

The eclectic items inside Dykstra’s home included a poster of actor James Dean and an image of guitarist Keith Richards. There’s also an autographed photo of Dwight “Doc” Gooden, Dykstra’s former Mets teammate on the 1986 World Series team.

“He could pitch, bro, he could pitch,” Dykstra said of the former fireballer.

Dykstra’s municipal court hearing on Wednesday in connection with the illegal rooming house allegations was ultimately postponed — and he’s wasting no time thinking about his next move: sunny California.

“I improved their property values,” Dykstra said of his neighbors. “I’m not here to cause problems. I don’t want any trouble.”

Once back in California, where he has previously lived, Dykstra said, he’ll take up awaiting opportunities he has in television and real estate. And he’s not expecting to have any trouble finding someone to buy his current home, either.

“Someone’s going to get a great house,” he told NJ Advance Media. “This is a family house on the end of a cul-de-sac. You hear no noise and it’s a great place to live.”
