STPCV TA Facebook Postings Exposing Troublesome Incidents
Yeah, I've been reading the posts on the TA Facebook page that are revealing, in an ever-increasing pattern, the methods that CWCapital/CompassRock may be trying to use to intimidate and ultimately oust long-term residents inhabiting non-renovated apartments (ie, truly rent-stabilized apartments with a considerably lesser rental fee): a notice of a speedy lease termination for having an extra wall put up that has already been removed, crafty apartment inspections that make note of peeling paint with potential legal problems to follow, the casual allowance of partying and noise from loud "neighbors" that make a living hell for other tenants. Meanwhile, for over 18 months management has been incapable of removing "drug and alcohol induced squatters" in an apartment, residents who have been escorted, in handcuffs, out of their apartment several times by police. (Gee, I wonder if they reside in a renovated apartment that generates a high rental?)
Of course, all of this could be the result of the incompetence of management. After all, many tenants have been receiving faulty late payment notices of their rent. Something is amiss. Things are not working well. Is this an insidious, well thought out policy or just plain mismanagement? It could be both.
Before their posts are removed, you can also find non-TA posting residents expressing their anger at managment on the official page of Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village:
UPDATE: Very much worth reading and pertinent to the above:
