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. Things like the carpet rule or outsider dogs. These "rules" tend to be ignored, on purpose it seems. 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, though the "selling" of this place is intense. Few of the "rules" will be enforced, as Management doesn't want to lose customers or potential customers. Where personal integrity is a hallmark of an excellent management style, this integrity is not seen in enforcing some of the rules.

Our Tenants Association is, basically, null and void. Oh, it is still around, but it lacks the will power to confront much of anything. The TA will ask for your dues, however. By now, the TA is a charade.

About those "club cars" we see going this way and that way, and outside of Stuy Town or Peter Cooper Village:

Get Your Tomatoes Ready for Scott Stringer

Start preparing your tomatoes when Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer shows up at another Tenants Meeting. Make those tomatoes as full and red and pudgy with juice as Stringer. Stringer's support of the building of a mosque right near Ground Zero is typical multicultural, pie-in-the sky flabbiness. (Scott would like pies, of course.) Community Board 1, with high-fives from Stringer and Mayor-for-Life Mike Bloomberg, have voted 29-1 to support the proposed mosque that is an obvious slap in the face to those who have lost loved ones in the 9/11 tragedy, and another humiliation of this country in the age of Obama.

May Stringer and Mayor Bloomberg's names be etched forever in the Wall of Shame, and may their descendants be placed under Sharia law and be beaten with sticks severely about the buttocks whenever they complain.

Yep and those of us who speak up against this will be branded racists etc.
Scott Stringer is another NYC uber liberal do nothing who like his buddies Obama and Holder , refuses to utter the phrase "Islamic Terrorist" and Manhattanites continue to reelect him.

What does this have to do with Stuyvesant Town? They're not building a mosque here.

Just wait. The Dhimmis will allow one to be built in the center of the Oval within 20 years.

Ah, minarets among the redbrick towers. I can see it now. It will be so inspirational when they do the wailing call to summon the faithful to prayer. Might make us miss the yowling dogs and screechy flipflop girls.

The Bleeding heart liberals will beat the dhimmis to it

I think it is a terribly insensitive thing to put a mosque in that particular spot. I have no doubt that most Muslims are peaceful people, but they do seem to have the monopoly on terrorists in this age we're living in. I remember when the Catholic church wanted to put a convent near the site of one of the death camps in Europe there was outrage (justifiable) from the Jewish community, so the Church changed its plans and deferred to the sensitivities of the Jews. It wasn't that those nuns had been involved in the atrocities that had taken place decades ago, but the Church had terrible sins against the Jews in its history and as an institution hadn't done much to help the Jews during the Holocaust. Certainly, some individual Catholics helped them, but not the Church as an institution. This seems like a similar thing to me and the outrage of 9/11 was not decades ago even. It is still very, very fresh in our memories. We have yet to hear any real outcry and outrage from the Muslim religion as an institution against the atrocities of 9/11 or any of the other terrorist acts by their Jihadists in other places in the world. Plus we still have those turkeys trying to blow up places in New York City and kill innoccents. I'm not really surprised at Bloombastard because he is a pandering dick who has no soul, but I am surprised at Stringer. I had expected better from him.

I went to the meeting @ the site on Sunday 5.6. There were not many folks, just a few young people, some Russian Jews like me and some from "Tea Party", some elders. But it was strictly about the mosque, a kind of an antifascist meeting. Back home, my son of 32 called me a racist. Seems like 1930s is back again.

We should never ever forget what those bastards did to us on 9/11 and I don't give a flying fuck if anyone thinks I'm a racist. Rather be a racist that a panderer to those who would destroy us. I won't vote for anybody who supports putting a fucking mosque at Ground Zero.

Wow it seems to be that you're comparing Muslims as a population to an entire Christian European nation torturing Jews. I think that is entirely on a different level. Muslims do not have a big mosque entity that needs to be hated. I can see it can be a sensitive issue, but the problem is, people need to realize that there are two types of Muslims in this situation: terrorists who declared jihad on America and normal people you shake hands with that want to pray. Protesting against it is stupid, and makes no logical sense. If you recognize that there are normal Muslims, then this should not be an issue anymore, should it? Unless you've become foolish enough to think Muslims are a now a race sent out to destroy you. What a tragedy.
