Mystery Solved

The mystery of the lengthy pit at the patio extension of Cafe Kubrick has been solved! Today workers began installing Cabbage Patch Kids inside the fissure. This project is expected to be finished within two weeks. Perhaps.

In a statement released early this afternoon, Joe DePlasco, spokesman for CWCapital and Rose Associates, stated, "We've taken very seriously the completion of this four-month project, and now with the insertion of the Cabbage Patch Kids, residents and their guests can finally enjoy the full luxury of Cafe Kubri--I mean, Oval Cafe."

You can add Brian Moriarty to the CW Capital Hall of Shame spin doctors as well. Makes one wish for the integrity of a Tom Kay, the spokesman and lobbyist for General Motors shown in Roger and Me.

Once the Cabbage Patch Kids are fully grown they will be put to work for CWCapital and Rose Associates.

For once CWCapital Asset Management got it right! They know what their college kids want! It's a latrine / spittoon combo!

KEEP IT CLASSY ANDREW MACARTHUR!

Brian Moriarty takes latrines and spittoons very seriously! I know this because he said so. And if he says so it's truth! Ask Joe DePlasco! He'll tell you!

Wow! They'll even sub-divide a gutter to cram in the college kids. Do they get the complimentary gift basket full of Bud Lite, Trojans, and barf bags?

Did any of the geniuses at STPCV stop to think their new tag line "Escape New York" sounds exactly like "Escape From New York," the famous 1981 movie in which all of Manhattan is a maximum security prison??? Andrew MacArthur's list of follies keep on growing!

Stuy Town Reporter said...

It also sounds like something that's been used here or at Lux's old site or on the TA Facebook. Then there's this:

Seems like the ad department for PCVST is searching for inspiration.

First it was "Live It Up," then horn dogs groping on the grass, then the 80 acre backyard (technically the entire proprty is 80 acres, not the park space) and now Escape New York! This shit reeks of summer intern. It makes Manny - Come see for yourself! -seem like a wordsmith. Fools.

Good catch STR! The ad agency coming up with this junk is blatantly ripping off article headlines! How much money was wasted on their plagiarism I wonder?

Long thread on the TA's Facebook page which directly contradicts Stuy Town's new "Escape New York" tag line. There's a LOT of criminal activity here!

Four year old on a scooter was just hit by a bicyclist going full speed. This was on the oval during the movie. Hope the little guy was okay. It looked scary. The rider flew over his handlebars and landed on the boy.

Stuy Town Reporter said...

That's terrible. I am for allowing bicycle riding at a safe speed, but no such rule was put into place when the previous rule against ALL bicycle was removed. You can speed as fast as you want. Another fail.

tommyboy said...

poor kid getting hit by an adult biker, I'm surprised it doesn't happen more. Reckless biking is banned, meaning until you hurt or injure someone, your legal.

Why does a bicyclist need to wear a helmet where I as a pedestrian am also in danger? Everything here just seems to be too much, I wish I had the answer.

Anonymous said...

Ban all bicycles from Stuyvesant Town. I am sick of them. I don't care if it is a middle-aged lady with a helmet, flashers, mirrors or a fucking delivery guy or one of the "entitled" in their stupid speedos. This place was not designed for bicycle riding and we should NOT have to put up with it. Are you ready for a lawsuit Rose? You loser.

Stuy Town Reporter said...

Public Security has failed to consistently (and I mean consistently, not the spurt of enforcement we generally see when an issue is raised in public)--consistently enforce many of the Quality of Life rules around here for years. Probably the worst enforcement was of the no-bicycle-riding rule, which is why, I believe, that rule was done away with. But I can't understand why speeding riding is allowed. Indeed, there's a lawsuit waiting to happen and a possible serious tragedy.

Anonymous said...

Security in the booth at 22nd Street doesn't even blink when a bike of any sort goes past. I guess their position is that the rider is on Peter Cooper Road, so it's OK. Yes, cars are allowed there too but they don't go off on the other pathways.

Sorry to hear about this little boy being hit. Hope he is OK.

WARNING: For those of you who don't want to hear a rant against pedestrians,
however, stop reading now.

FYI - Bicycle helmets are NOT required by law, although I think that wisdom And safety dictate that everyone should wear one.. And sorry to say so but you pedestrians need to be more aware of your surroundings. Get your noses out of your cellphones, for starters, and stop standing or wandering into the bike lanes on the streets to try to get a jump on the traffic lights changing. I am a responsie bike rider and YOUR bad behaviour is a danger to me. I have had to serve to avoid hitting some idiot pedestrian who suddenly decides to step off the curb without looking many times and I have lost my balance and either fallen or almost fallen off of my bike because of your stupidity.So, don't just think that you can be hurt by a bicycle rider, you can also hurt them.


streets so you can get a jump on the traffic lights changing.

I believe the bike rule was shelved in order for CW Capital and Andy Mac to try and make more money. There is a bike tour group that has led literally hundreds of people on bikes right smack through the oval. I am sure Rose or Maya or some CW flunky thought "oh my, so many potential renters, let's get them unfettered access. So what if some 4 year old gets hurt, it is the nature of the beast and it's a risk we are willing to take to rent that 1 apartment." I hope the child is fine and that his parents use CW Capital to fund his future Ivy League education.

To Poster at 6:04 AM:

We are not talking about bicycles on the streets here. We are talking about bicycles on the Stuy/PCV property. I am a careful pedestrian on the streets and I resent riders who go the wrong way against traffic, fail to stop for the lights and ride on the sidewalk. Having said that, I am sick of the fucking cyclists in Stuyvesant Town and PCV. I am sick of having to look behind me before I move across the fucking SIDEWALK in case there is some asshole on a bike coming up behind me. I am sick of having to hug the edge of the walkway so some fucking asshole delivering pizza can zoom past because he sure as hell won't stop or swerve for me. His dollar tip is more important. I have seen cyclists dismount and move the barriers that PS puts up when the green market is open and the PS, stupid pussified wimps that they are, do NOTHING. Don't preach to me about pedestrian behavior when you belong to a group of assholes who are more dangerous on the whole than the fucking gangbangers in the ghettos.

Sorry, sent to wrong thread:

Is it necessary to post profanity?

Tommyboy said...

Agreed pedestrians on the street often impede bike riders, however on the pathways of this complex is entirely different. You have to keep your head on a swivel, the killing hours of 6pm to 9pm are very dangerous. Thanks to Danny Garodnick for proposes increased fines for motorized bikes on the sidewalks......oh wait ....nothing has changed.
Thanks.for nothing Dan Garodnick

Like Anon 6:04, I am also a responsible bicycle rider and I, too, "resent riders who go the wrong way against traffic, fail to stop for the lights and ride on the sidewalk".

I also resent being lumped in with them and called potty mouth names to boot, Anon 11:04!

I agree with Anon 6:04 about bad pedestrian behavior. It's a fact just as much as bad cyclist behavior is a fact, both in and out of STPCV. People need to be much, much more aware of their surroundings.

So how is "bad pedestrian behavior" defined in STPCV other than not being careful when crossing the loop roads? The walking paths were built for walking and bicycles were never legally allowed before this stupid, lazy Rose regime decided that any law it didn't feel up to enforcing should be abolished. People walking through the grounds should not have to be on the alert for bicycles.

Too bad, people. Bikes ARE now are allowed In STPCV so you had better wake up to your surroundings. Things have changed and you need to adjust, like it or not. Besides, I have lived here for 40 years and people always rode bikes through here. One of the real problems is the delivery people's motorized bikes, which are illegal in NY state and which the NYPD had chosen to do nothing about. However, come January 2013, they will begin to ticket them, I believe.


Tommyboy said...

The hilarity is often you'll see a food delivery guy on a cell phone, smoking a cigarette, while looking for a address, with an oversized delivery dangling awkwardly from the handlebars.
Garodnicked indeed!

Anonymous said...

The only time I ride my bike here is to get in and out of the complex to go elsewhere.

During that brief time, I am very conscious of the fact that these are pedestrian walkways (despite the fact that SUVs and golf carts regularly speed by) and move very slowly and deliberately. After all, we're talking about a total of one minute of travel at most and it would be pointless and inconsiderate to do any less. I don't get the sense that the delivery people (or management's motorized vehicles) afford us the same consideration. I think that is more the issue but, perhaps, I am wrong.

YOU had better wake up to your surroundings and ride your bike very slowly and carefully because I promise you that any one of you entitled jerks who hits me will be sued up the kazoo, so make sure your personal liability insurance is paid up to date and is sufficient.

You people are blaming Garodnick for delivery men??? Oy, you love to complain don't you?

Tommyboy said...

That's the problem in a nutshell, mgt. is the worst offender. Everything from golf carts, back ho's, pick-up trucks, personal cars box trucks, oh my!
Nobody walks anymore, I believe some of the contractors bring in their own carts, like Pace Plumbing.
Yesterday I saw four big wigs in a 4 seater street legal ride. I'm probably more jealous than mad?

As for the "back ho's," I'm not sure that is a vehicular problem...

"You people are blaming Garodnick for delivery men??? Oy, you love to complain don't you?"

No one is blaming Garodnick for delivery men. We are however, blaming him for allowing CW Cap and Andy Mac to skirt NYC rules regarding bikes on sidewalks in ST/PCV. If you remember, prior to getting tons of dough from the RE concerns and CW in particular for his run for Comptroller, Dan was a big advocate for no bikes on sidewalks. All the people who get hurt by bikes in ST/PCV are his fault. Anyone who votes for this loser gets what they deserve!!!
