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.

Great letter from Tim Collins to CW's lawyers is embedded in the link you posted!

"“The orders issued remain in full force and effect with respect to prospective rent increases until new orders are issued after reconsideration.”

WTF? Has the HCR been hitting Rob Ford's crack stash?

Where's Cuomo?

Yeah, that really stuck out.

Cuomo is not our friend. He is a close buddy of the odious Rob Speyer and he is a proven slime ball in his own right. Don't depend on Cuomo for anything except his working against the RS tenants in NYC. If he ever runs for Prez, I will vote for ANYBODY who runs against him because I believe he is the dirtiest of the dirty.

Not sure what to make of this HCR grant. I guess it's a positive, despite the fact that it keeps the MCI orders "in full force" for now, but I'm not celebrating.

You must read the letter that Tim Collins (Counsel to the Tenants Association) sent to CWC's attorney. It's his response to CWC's MCI settlement offer that we all received Friday.It's spectacular!

Management has a sign outside 360 PCV; shows the schedule for anyone who wishes to go inside and talk to reps about the MCIs.

Stuy Town Reporter said...

We should stay positive regarding allegiance to the TA and their work on these MCIs, however I do have to note that Collins stated his certainty that the MCIs would be rescinded (at least temporarily) before the MCIs were reviewed by the DHCR. This is what I heard during the TA meeting last week. The "grant" by the HCR changes the sequence, it seems. As for management and their MCI reps, screw them.

Well thanks for posting that useless piece of bullshit, I mean information. Is there a schedule up for when our attorney Tim Collins can "talk to reps about the MCIs"?

A long way from a celebration. Hope its not winning the battle but losing the war.
