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.

"Peace and quiet" must be a cruel joke, though this property is sold that way. There can be no peace and quiet as ALL apartments must be upgraded, which includes the installation of an AC unit below the window. Aside from the continual construction about the neighborhood, there is a new and noisy subway extension being built along East 14 st and the shut down of the L line. "Choosing" to live in NYC, now the newest mantra, is a fabrication when the talk is of ST and PCV, which was traditionally quiet, with no construction noise.

Though money was always important, it is now more important than ever. Money rules many things, as you will find.

At this point, 30 years into living here and seeing many things, I can state that Management and their reps are BS-ing us. I can't say that loudly enough: We are being BS-ed. I don't see any genuine change. Sorry.

Living Here is Great

Here's one of the comments I received yesterday:

"Hopefully you will be threatened to take down your blog as well. All either of you do is spread false rumors about what life is like at PCVST. Living here is great and I've yet to experience 1 tenth of the 'issues' that you say plague residents. Why don't you concentrate on spreading love rather than hate."

In honor of the above message....

PCVST? Who the heck refers to Peter Cooper before Stuy Town? STPCV, if you must.

Very Cute? This video starts out from a non-Stuy Town apartment (noted by flooring and trim detail). Stand by one of the entrance loops on a Saturday or Sunday. See how many non-residents are entering to enjoy the "park-like" settings. - ST resident for many years.

Yeah, I noticed the floor, too. I have an interesting report coming up regarding how Tishman Speyer views this "private" property.

And they return home from their walk to the 25% rent increase...
