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:

So Just What is the Rug Policy?

I was going to post on something else (will do tomorrow), but in checking the official PCVST website for anything about the new dog policy (no success), I came across a few "sales pitch" photos I've not seen for the complex, the above of a Peter Cooper Village "Classic" living room and bedroom. We've seen photos like this before, which say one thing, but the reality is different (or should be different according to one's lease). If anyone gets into trouble for not having appropriate rug covering in their apartment, they should bring up these bs photos.

You mean there are people over the age of 25 on their web sites? Amazing.

Those are the seniors of the crowd that are new tenants.

I thought they were Renee and Tony showing off their 80 percent carpeting coverage. Whatta joke.

Is that what they're doing with all the dog urin? Staining the walls with it. Pee Pee-licous!

Did you see that? I just added "licous" to the end of a real word. Can I be an Oval event planner too?!
