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.

Don't forget UNITY DAY - Saturday, Nov. 14 at 1pm at Solar One - Stuyvesant Cove Park

You've seen the flyers and posters. On Saturday, Nov. 14th, residents of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village will gather at Solar One - Stuyvesant Cove Park (22nd Street and the East River) to "demonstrate our determination to maintain the affordability and unique character of our community." Time: 1pm. Expect to see several of our local politicians and tenant rights activists at the gathering, who will speak on matters critical to our survival here in this complex.

IN CASE OF RAIN, the gathering will be moved to Simon Baruch JHS 104, on 20th St, between 1st and 2nd Avenues.
