    A Queens building superintendent was stabbed to death Monday afternoon inside the building where he worked, police and neighbors say.

    The 50-year-old man's girlfriend found his body inside the boiler room at 123-27 Merrick Blvd. in St. Albans just after 2:30 p.m., police said. He'd been stabbed in the chest several times.

    EMS transported him to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

    No arrest has been made. 

    Neighbors said the victim was the building's superintendent, who had an apartment right next to the boiler room. They said he was friendly and did his job well taking care of the apartments. 

    "To think that I just saw him yesterday, and to just think that he's not here today," said Collette Hudson. "It's just mind-boggling and frightening." 

    Uganda Grant said the super was an "extremely good guy, hard worker."

    "When they told me how he was killed, that really messed me up," said Grant. "That was brutal. That was really brutal."

    "He's a nice person," added another neighbor, Darien. "I don't know someone who would want to do this to him."
