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.

Our Security System Wins an Award!



Read it here: Stuy Town's Security Management System Award

This must mean that furniture dump violators, graffiti tagsters, speeding delivery bike riders, people who leave cigarette butts, underwear and condoms lying near buildings, bench board breakers, dog owners who let dogs off leash, outside dog owners who walk their pit bulls through the complex, and the occasional rapist and mugger--are all being caught thanks to the "over 1,100 video cameras, 950 access control points, VOIP emergency phones, and parking controls for six garages." This also must mean that Lux and his spies can take a well deserved break and stop monitoring furniture dumping and other garbage inside and outside buildings because it's all under control via our deluxe security operation. And here I thought we had a problem!

Congratulations!

That's like giving our squalid laundry rooms an award for cleanliness and quality of equipment! OMG! Wait a minute! That may be the next affront to tenants! BTW, we have filthy brown water today. Not a good day for laundry anyway!

Well, when the machines don't work and no one uses them, the room stays clean.

Mission accomplished...

The award is for the system installation, not its use. Sort of like people who buy really nice exercise equipment and use it to hang their dirty laundry.It only works if you use it properly.

As far as I am concerned, hanging dirty laundry IS proper use for exercise equipment...

I thought I was the only one who used my exercise bike primarily as a clothes rack!

The security cameras took fantastic photos of the ice pick killer. Security waved them in the faces of the victims and said "Is this the guy we didn't catch? Our bad."

Hey! This security system serves a very important service. It means that when "Public Safety" are tired of watching Spongebob and searching on Craig's List they can zone in on the skanky "Woo Hoo Girls" sunbathing practically naked on the grass. And for those who feel inclined, they can zone in on the braying dudes and bros in their little tighties.

If the cameras don't prevent any of the things you mention from happening why even have them? They're a joke.

The latest studies show that security cameras DO NOT DETER crime, even though the cameras are in plain sight of the
perpetrator(s). BUT, the security cameras greatly increase the chances of identifying, finding and successfully prosecuting the individual(S) who commit the crime.

Nothing is as good as BOOTS ON THE GROUND! I'd rather a crime was averted or interrupted by the presence of officers than be lying in the morgue while they go over the pics.
