I wanted to post this much earlier, but was distracted by Stuy Town's bikini beauties....
Below is the Compass Rock notice dealing with tenant retrieval of items in trunks that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy. These items, which were housed in those huge containers throughout Peter Cooper Village, can now be picked up...in the Bronx, at 1661 Boone Ave at the corner of 173 St. Yeah, you're going to have to get your ass over to the Bronx and may not even be able to depart with the items you want or are looking for. One has to wonder. If these items were so potentially toxic, what the hell were they doing in PCV containers for so long! I remember passing through PCV after they were put in place and smelling something rancid even then. Your trunk, if they find it, will be retrieved in the Bronx location by "a trained staff member wearing protective gear." You will not be able to take the trunk back with you, just items from the trunk. You will also be issued NY State Department of Health guidelines "concerning handling materials impacted by Hurricane Sandy." Compass Rock advises residents that if they "elect to touch and/or retrieve their property," they "will do so at their own risk."
Sounds like a fun outing, doesn't it? Make sure you come back alive.
Oh, yes, there is going to be transportation provided at certain times. ID, etc, will be necessary. Of interest is that the damaged trunks were not just in Peter Cooper Village, but Stuy Town as well.
