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:

NYU Sugar Babies and Stuyvesant Town

So what are NYU students like? If you go to the NYU blog, NYULOCAL, you'll see an interview with Brandon Wade, head of company for sugar daddies and sugar babies. (NYU has more "sugar babies" than any other college in the United States.):

Other points of interest:

The hopes of getting an island for NYU's expansion. (Doesn't NYU already have most of Manhattan?) NYU and Governors Island

And the joys of mixed drinks, of course: NYU and Drinking

What would an NYU blog be without a mention of Stuyvesant Town:

NYU and Stuy Town .... And here's the important paragraph with some surprising money figures:

"In my search, I’ve found that the more bedrooms (and therefore, roommates) you have, the better deal you’ll get. For example, 1-bedroom flex units (meaning the units either have or are equipped for pressurized walls that cut into the living space with additional bedrooms) in the apartment community Stuyvesant Town will very comfortably house two people for around $7,000 per semester. However, a 2-bedroom flex unit in Stuyvesant Town, which will house three people comfortably, rents for around $6,000 a semester each. Stuyvesant Town also includes all utilities in the price of rent, so the only additional fees you need to worry about are cable and internet."

Are the Sugar Babies going to host events in the oval as well?

They'd get more of a crowd, that's for sure!

"Okay, so I moved off campus to get away from noisy NYU students, but now I live next to a crying baby. What do I do?
It happens, and you can’t win them all, but might I suggest some noise-cancelling headphones?"

The above is a quote from the NYU website you reference. THEY have the nerve to worry about a crying baby when they move here to get away from their own kind! I can't believe the gall of these people. I would rather have a dozen crying babies living around me than one dorm apartment with noisy NYU students!

It's perverted old men paying for NYU kids to live here? I'm embarrassed to live here.

So they're exactly what they look like.

They can call themselves sugar babies, but they are what they are.

They're giving junk food a bad name and that's just not right!
