People are still tossing pizzas onto the 'Breaking Bad' home

The Quintanas, after all, have to live there, and while it may be neat to have your home be a part of TV history, not everyone always thinks of the day-to-day practicalities and hassles.

A 6-foot wrought iron fence is being built around the famous northeast Albuquerque home.

On a weekly basis, Quintana said she loses count of how many people come to the house. Over the first Balloon Fiesta weekend, she estimates it climbed into the hundreds. In fact, the TV news crew saw 10 tourists visit the home in their first 15 minutes on the scene.

They can get nasty.

Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house, told KOB4, "We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous..."

Sometimes, she said, people even ask her to step out of her own yard for a better picture and steal her landscaping rocks to keep as souvenirs. It wasn't exactly an easy decision; it's one that feels like a punishment.


The fence is now under construction and should be completed soon, but trespassers have already attempted to climb around it to take photographs with the iconic house, according to KOB 4.

'We don't want to gate ourselves in, ' she told the news channel. It's where we witnessed Walt and Skyler evolve from a normal family into one with bitter, ugly tensions.

At a UNM area duplex used as Jesse Pinkman's apartment, the renter deals with it as well. Every weekend, she has at least three or four people up here trying to take a selfie at her front door.

She said if it ever got bad, she'd break too.

"They were prepared with special effects, a lightweight rubber pizza, there was a prop guy ready to pull a fake pizza up to the roof".
