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:

The Difference Between Jews and Gentiles in a Restaurant

To lighten up the mood:

This video is so funny and Jackie is so right on in so many ways! I used to have dinner with a Jewish friend (sadly passed away now) who, by the time I had finished my dinner, she had sent hers back 3 times because this wasn't right or that wasn't right! We often ordered the same thing and I couldn't find anything wrong with mine! God bless her memory! She's probably re-arranging Heaven right now.

Why is this on a blog devoted to the truth about PCVST? It's racist and offensive - is this the truth about PCVST?

On the Joy Behar “Say Anything” show the other day, the guests were David Steinberg and Susie Essman (she plays Jeff's wife, Susie on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”). They were talking about the similarities between Jews and Italians. David nails it, says that Italians are “happy” Jews.

Please tell me you are joking. And if you are not joking, please don't visit this blog anymore.

WTG STR. These people have gone too far. They don't get it!
Who doesn't know Jackie Mason! And the video was a great holiday break from all the tensions around here! Keep going, STR! We get it!

Poster at 8:58 PM: Who's being racist? Jackie Mason or STR? Who is the racism directed toward, Jews or Gentiles? Are you saying Jackie Mason is an anti-semite? Are you saying STR is an anti-semite? Or, are you saying that one or both of them is anti-gentile? Or, is one or other of them anti-semite and anti-gentile? Please explain your rationale because I would really love to hear it. Thank you.

He is the best! I've seen him many times. They don't make funny men like this any more--and that's not a good thing!
