From the TA:
Organized action in front of the PCV/ST Leasing Office on First
Avenue will continue this Saturday, June 1, at 10:00 a.m. The Tenants
Association has arranged for documentary filmmaker and citizen
journalist Sandi Bachom to be there on Sunday, June 2, at 12:00 p.m. to
5:00 p.m. to videograph your stories for posting in short vignettes on
YouTube and for sending to CW Capital.
This is your chance to raise your voice, stand with your neighbors
and educate would-be tenants and brokers about shocking mid-lease rent
increases, the recent spate of unsolved burglaries, increasing incidents
of bedbugs, ongoing and unresolved noise complaints, broken or totally
missing laundry facilities, and surprise inspections that invade your
privacy and your home.
Longtime rent-stabilized residents are working with former market
rate tenants now faced with the choice between horrendous rent increases
or forced departure from the community in which they have already put
down roots. This newest threat to the future stability of Stuy
Town-Peter Cooper affects us all.
Come to the leasing office on First Avenue at 15th Street on
Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., or Sunday, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Spend
just 30 minutes or more educating prospective renters by distributing
flyers and talking to them.
Please check the Tenants Association website for more information.
