At this point, Management has two priorities: 1) Making sure money is made, hence upgrading and filling up apartments is their goal. "Amenities" are important in selling the place, though few residents use them. 2) If someone needs medical attention, Public Safety will be there, if alerted.

Quality of life issues are not that important, however. They tend to be ignored, despite "the rules." So you will see a lot that isn't taken care of properly, and complaints will be met with a creative excuse and a smile.

Tishman Speyer's Massive Gardening Failure



Ornamental cabbage and kale are traditionally used in the winter months for beautifying purposes during a time when other plantings would die. Tishman Speyer's gardener decided to spread cabbage and kale throughout Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village--but guess what? These winter plantings are now dying or being destroyed (eaten) by vermin during the night. Take a look at the cabbage patch near your building, or go for a walk around the Oval. You will see death and rot. A foreshadowing of things to come?

Because of the massive and wasteful gardening failure that we've seen in ST/PCV, I now doubt that Tishman Speyer will have the cajones to ask for a MCI increase for this tragic addition to the complex, though the company may still go for a MCI for the repaving of the loops. Stay tuned!
