This Was the 1st Clue that ST/PCV Would Change Forever

The plaque. Situated on the West Side of the Oval path. Honoring Met Life Chairman Frederick H. Ecker. Removed in 2002 by Met Life in advance of an eventual sale of ST/PCV.  The words on the plaque were the reason for the removal (not ST/PCV's early racist rental policy). Left there, the words would have made a mockery of what was to come.

These are the words, the vision, that no future landlord of ST/PCV could leave standing:

"... who with the vision of experience and the energy of youth conceived and brought into being this project, and others like it, that families of moderate means might live in health, comfort and dignity in park-like communities and that a pattern might be set of private enterprise productively devoted to public service."



The removed plaque has never been seen again. No one knows where it is.

Mr De Blasio can you live up to those words on the plaque, that vision with is no different than the words you said and promises you made when you campaigned here last year to this middle class community?

Jerry Speyer stole it and melted it down for his personal use.

Sean Sullivan took it as part of his “Golden Parachute” severance package.

Something definitely fishy by not receiving my rent statement. Anybody else?

Forgot the rest of the quote:

".... until someone offers us $5.4 billion for the place. Then we'll take the money and run!"

definitely fishy on the rent statements

new ownership announcement?

someone said maybe recalculating the misapplied and miscalculated mci overcharges because the riverton lawsuit made everyone aware they overcharge and overcalculate

maybe the dan/ta slimy brookfield moelis paul weiss takeover handover

someone said they are waiting for the new office to be completed so they can make an october announcement.

definitely something stinky, shady and underhanded..

If he is, he must be testing it out, as he's still very much alive.
