All comments to posts have to await approval. Approval does not happen immediately. NOTE: Comments reflect the opinions of the person writing them and should not be assumed to reflect the opinion of the blog.

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.

"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.

Watch out for the Mud Slide!

A blog reader sent in these photos of what greets him when he leaves his luxurious Stuyvesant Town residence. A huge mudslide, garbage and the ever-present dumpster. He writes:

"This has been my T for the past few days. Huge fucking mudslides that I literally cannot skate through - my skateboard gets STUCK in all the mud, even cruising at full speed. Also, note the wonderful dumpster that has been a part of my front yard for the past few months now. Always a shiny new blue dumpster to fill up with shit."

That's what happens when you skateboard on the sidewalk !

Anyone remember when it actually was safe for pedestrians to walk around here ? Before the management decided to deploy the mechanized army and ignore everything else speeding around ?

I think the skateboard comment was a joke.

Why do the tenants near this eyesore put up with this? A little community activism will likely cause change. Where were you people in the 60s? And if you are too young to remember the 60s and you live in Manhattan you very likely voted for the Community Organizer Extraordinaire- President Obama , whose community organizing activities you should emulate to get things done!

And what are you doing?

When we had a similar problem in PCV 5 years ago I organized a group of tenants to deal with it and we got some concessions.
That is what the people living near the dumpsters need to do.
