Peter Cooper Village residents who felt left out of the upgrade in landscaping that's already started in Stuyvesant Town have reason to cheer, as upgrading work has already begun in PCV....
Meanwhile the southwest corner of Stuy Town, where the landscaping started, is looking very good indeed. I urge residents to take a walk there and see for themselves. Of course, this area is the one prospective tenants first see when they exit the back of the First Avenue leasing office, so who knows how far this improvement and maintenance will extend.
The Stuyvesant Town greenmarket is now being promoted along the perimeter of the complex. Here's the banner:
And it does carry the "For Residents and Their Guests" tag at the bottom. Yeah, I know it's smaller print and will become concealed if the plantings in front of the banner rise any higher...And one does wonder just for whom this banner is meant for?
A Con Ed emergency truck, using compressed gas, has turned up at the Oval. Gossip away!
During this time Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper tends to look its best with everything in full bloom, so enjoy. On a negative note, I must mention that in my walk about the complex, I saw several dog violations. It always happens. One guy in Peter Cooper was taking out three dogs (!) and Public Safety inside their car didn't do a thing, even as they passed him right by...and slowly.
Oh, and finally, finally, Playground 10 appears to be heading to reopening very soon. Brand new astro-turf is being vacuumed and made shiny pretty.
