"I was surprised they let all five of us live in my place."



From http://www.brickunderground.com/blog/2014/07/stuy_town_perk_check

I may have posted this before.... If I did, it still shocks me, so worth a repeat.

As we know by now an apartment with more than three unrelated tenants is a legal no-no in the city.

From the above "I was surprised...." statement it appears that the leasing office/management is aware of such situations. And our TA certainly is.

And so....?

Letter today from ST/PCV Tenants Assiciation. The basketball tent was a potential death trap with a multitude of construction violations.

Anyone surprised?

I'm not surprised that the TA did NOT report this to the Fire Department and the DOB. The TA had CW/CompassRock by the balls and they let go. Now there is no official record of the violations.

My thoughts exactly STR. Another coordinated stunt by CWCR and TA Board to fool the residents. They should have reported it on the City record.

Those are serious violations that should have gone on record to demonstrate the prevalent lack of Safety concerns.

OMG the TA board is not being paid to work for and cover up for the landlord. This is gross misuse of their time.

WHAT TA? Oh yeah. The one that gave IN to the 'people" who I am paying all of these outrageous MCI'S to. What a JOKE!!!!!!

I don't think it's coordinated at all, but it just shows how passive the TA is.

Considering those are serious safety violations and it is children's lives at stake - a more thorough, official inspection by the City is warranted, no wait....it is mandatory to make sure ALL safety precautions are being made, including proper training of staff in case of emergency or fire, number of occupancy, etc on top of the fire hazardous situations they carelessly and recklessly operate under with cables and such. Then given this is the level of safety management deems appropriate - a call for property wide inspections are called for.

Home come nobody that lives in ST reported any of this to ANY city agency ? Phones broke ?

Re the tents: I'm surprised that as yet nobody has taken advantage of the huge blank canvas that CW has put up to let tenants express their, um, gratitude.

Not saying anyone should pick up a can of spray paint or anything (now that wouldn't be legal right?), but if someone whose apartment faces that playground had a slide projector...

5:59 - that's a terrific idea. Now it is a movie theatre. Does it meet all the safety requirements for a movie theatre? What the heck is this tent and why do we have a movie theatre in our residential neighborhood?

Brazenly breaking the law and no one who is in a position to do so is holding them accountable. Corruption in NYC is alive and well.

"Brazenly breaking the law and no one who is in a position to do so is holding them accountable. Corruption in NYC is alive and well."

Corruption in New York City is not only alive and well, but it is procreating, proliferating and showing no signs whatsoever of ceasing! DeB is playing right along with his REBNY owners; Compass Rock (a/k/a Campus Crock) is blatantly breaking the laws concerning occupancy and is flouting both the RS laws and the FDNY and DOB (joke of an agency) safety laws. We are no better off as far as corruption, non-sanctity of human life, etc., than we were in the days of Boss Tweed, Julius "Tenement" Tishman and all of those money-grubbing, blood-sucking dirtbags of days of yore. New York will never get clean. The politicians and their owners/puppeteers are dirty and unscrupulous to a degree that it would take a dozen or more Preets working 24/7 365 days a year to even begin to scratch of the top layer of filth.
When we have a Major Catastrophe (on the scale of the Triangle Factory fire horror) then the situation here (and in other buildings in NYC, including 25 Mexicans to a bed) may be looked into. But let's just hope that it won't take that to shake the overseers of our corrupt-to-the core management and the politicians who they pander to, to get on the stick and get on it fast.
