Sunday morning, at opposite north/south ends of Stuyvesant Town. Still there at midday:
After a couple of months of blatant furniture dumping by departing residents at incorrect hours of deposit along Stuy Town walkways, Rose Associates informed Lux of the Lux Living Facebook and Stuy Town Living website that the company would take the tough measure of back charging those residents' security deposits for this violation. Said Adam Rose: “We are checking the cameras for people dumping garbage on move outs, and then back charging their security deposits."
The problem still persists, as can be seen by these photos (which also show a couple of exposed stained mattresses).
Now here's what I don't understand. If our award-winning security monitoring system is catching these activities, why are they not being stopped as they occur? Typically, the furniture dumping is of several items that take many minutes to place on the sidewalk from inside a building. Could it just be that no one is really paying attention to the security monitors? Or is our security team just not up to the task? Or is this just another way to make money for a disposal service that used to be done by maintenance once upon a pleasant time?
Whatever the case, it's a persistent FAIL.
