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. They tend to be ignored, despite "the rules." 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. Sorry.

Hercules Intercedes on Behalf of Stuy Town Tenants (Particularly Those Living Around the Oval)*

"May the gods let it rain and rain!"

* Will the Soul Asylum concert tomorrow be rained out or at least will the Oval lawn be a quagmire of mud and stagnant pools punishing those who trifle with the peace of our community?  Will Stuy Town tenants living around the Oval have a day of merciful rest inside their apartments?  Will Public Safety be freed from the weighty responsibility of checking to make sure concert attendees are only STPCV residents and their guests? Only the gods know!

Knowing these bastards, they'll put on the concert come hell or high water.

Who the fuck is "Soul Asylum?" Some has-been group from the 80s? Have to ask my dad if he ever heard of them. Sounds like the kind of crap he would've liked.

Any group/musician who would play a gig like Stuyvesant Oval has to be totally desperate and completely devoid of any self-respect.
Hey Soul Asylum, accept the fact that it is OVER; you are finished! End of the road! Take what shred of dignity you might have left and try to find a gig that will ease you into retirement with some semblance of dignity. This is a terrible place to wind up a career!

I dunno. Seems like the gods are listening to Herc.

A large crowd trampling on the soggy Oval lawn will destroy it. Plain and simple.

I would not put it past management to run a sound truck around the Oval in the event of rain.

They just LOVE making people's lives miserable.

Screw you Compass Rock.

To 906p ......

Do you think management gives a rat's ass about the grass on the Oval?

Look what they did to the landscaping on the Oval's west end last week.

I guarantee you that if there's no rain the "entertainment" for residents and their guests will go on as planned.

Did you ever notice how it doesn't say "for residents and their guests ONLY".

Subtle difference.

Concert is on rain or shine. Of course real concert is at Randalls Island for Governors Ball with Guns N Roses and Nas.

“Today Mostly cloudy, with a high near 79. West wind 10 to 14 mph.”

As in “Jason and the Argonauts“, the Gods had other plans for Hercules. You know that CWC/CR, even with the Oval being soaked, will not cancel this concert which has been advertised on 20 different websites including the PCVST Twitter feed. “Tenants and Guests” and “Accessory Use”, ROLO.
