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!
