Residents who have been in Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village longer than the current landlord, Tishman Speyer, will remember how lovely the Oval area looked when Easter came along, with new flowerings in abundance and everything nice and manicured and neat. Granted this spring has been colder than normal, but the Oval area and surrounding regions have never looked worse during this time--under the administration of Tishman Speyer. It really is pathetic how terrible this complex looks now. If I didn't identify the photos below as being from Stuy Town, you might think they were taken in a ghetto complex.
The following pictures were all taken today, Easter Sunday.
Below: The large reflecting areas are mud.
Below: North side building in the Oval, with its "landscaping."
South of the Oval areas:
Near 14th Street and still in Stuyvesant Town. Looks like a dump.
And putting Tishman Speyer to shame, here are a couple of photos taken today of Tomkins Square Park. The difference is striking. Did you ever think Tomkins Square Park would look substantially better than the grounds here in Stuyvesant? Well, thanks to Rob and Jerry Speyer it has happened!
