Justin Theroux's elderly New York neighbor has given DailyMailTV an exclusive tour of their apartment building while lashing out at the actor over his million dollar home renovations and for taking over the building's basement with 'junk' he has collected off the street.

Norman Resnicow and Jennifer Aniston's husband have been embroiled in a heated legal battle over their neighboring apartments in Greenwich Village.

The 69-year-old lawyer was left fuming when Theroux sued him for $350,000 for interfering in his renovations through bullying and intimidation. 

Resnicow then filed his own lawsuit against Theroux in August for harassment, bad construction and his yowling dogs, demanding he pay to soundproof his apartment.

The battle went into another round last week after Theroux filed a response, in which he included a photo of what he claims shows a pyjama-clad Resnicow harassing builders on his property.

In an interview with DailyMailTV that aired Thursday, Resnicow said he and Theroux used to be friends years ago but their relationship soured when the actor stopping giving a 'damn about the people who live downstairs'.

'I had been particularly close to Justin in the building,' he said.

But Resnicow claims Theroux has now become cavalier about the whole building and even now takes up basement storage with what he calls 'Justin's junk'.

He showed DailyMailTV multiple storage boxes stacked up in the basement labeled with Theroux's name. 

'Justin has said he likes to collect things off the street for his apartment - why he keeps it here, I can't imagine,' Resnicow said. 

Theroux, however, has denied all the allegations leveled against him by his disgruntled neighbor.

In the latest court documents, Theroux's lawyer said: 'Resnicow is observed compulsively involving himself in his neighbors' business, including just days ago when he literally climbed out of his second-floor window wearing pajamas and brazenly trespassed onto Mr Theroux's property to confront Mr Theroux's workers.' 

Resnicow said he and Theroux, who is married to Jennifer Aniston, used to be friends until their relationship soured when the actor stopping giving a 'damn about the people who live downstairs'

Resnicow has also taken issue with Theroux making noise in the early hours of the morning and for letting his dogs yowl. 

'Here he is walking around in his biker boots that he seems never to take off and he stomps around in these things at three in the morning,' he said.

'He had some dogs upstairs... when the dogs were here there was a lot of loud yowling. I don't want to hear them and you don't want to hear me... have all the dogs you want, just do the right thing.'

Theroux's lawyer, however, said that was Resnicow's pathetic attempt 'to exploit the fact that Mr Theroux is deeply committed to promoting awareness of sheltered animals.' 

It is understood Theroux's dogs have not been at his New York apartment since at least 2011.

The bitter dispute between the neighbors is said to have escalated when Resnicow asked his famous neighbor to soundproof his apartment in his million dollar renovation due to the noise.

'When someone is doing a million dollar plus renovation and you've been hearing stuff for years, come on,' Resnicow said. 

Resnicow had demanded that Theroux provide funds of up to $30,000 for sound-proofing, according to court documents. 

He claims he has suffered from leakage and mold ever since Theroux started his apartment renovations.

While Resnicow admits he has never spoken to Jennifer, he claims she looks miserable every time she is pictured leaving the apartment. 

He added that he hoped her love of Los Angeles would keep them both away. 

Mr. Theroux' spokesperson was not pleased with the house tour, telling DailyMailTV, 'Norman Resnicow’s continued attempts to badger Mr. Theroux are disturbing. Inviting a television crew into a residential building that is home not just to Mr. Theroux, but to a number of other private residents, further validates why Mr. Theroux had to bring this nuisance lawsuit in the first place. In the end, Mr. Resnicow’s campaign of harassment makes the rope of liability for him even longer.'
