Thievery In Stuy Town/PCV--Once Again
The TA Facebook page reports that there's been another alleged theft of a tenant's property (in this case a check book!) having to do with free and unsupervised apartment access to painters hired by management. "These two thefts come on the heels of three Grand Larcenies in Stuyvesant Town when Management permitted contract workers in scores of apartments unsupervised," adds the notice.
Apparently, tenants cannot protect their apartments by using a top lock, according to their lease.
A tangent, I know, but I have to add that the painting job I've seen these non-union painters do is sloppy and unprofessional, so perhaps we can get the old crew back???
Just so new tenants know, there was a time (actually before my time here) when tenants were able to leave their front doors unlocked without fear of thievery or other forms of mischief. That's when this place was a real community. Now, nothing is safe, even deliveries from the Post Office and FedEx.
