A New TA?

The following is a comment made in a recent thread. I'm uploading it on this main page for interested parties. I don't know this person, by the way, but am certainly willing to give attention to the project.

Ok, so obviously the time has come for a change. I am willing to help with that. I am a 35 year old male that has lived in PCVST for 35 years. My family has lived here since the complex opened. I work for the US Government in a real estate role, so I don't have any ties to DG or anything the REBNY says.

I am not looking for anything from this blog... just support. I used to work for PCVST, so I know my fair deal around the situations that are upcoming based on my experience. I have set up an email for our new TA. Please email me at pcvstta@gmail.com if you have an interest.

Is this serious and can they tell us who they are? The description is appreciated and more than likely gives away enough information for Compass Rock to figure out who they are so can they tell us their name and how serious they are about this. We need a TA that is going to fight as the Riverton TA did for them. Even though I don't understand why they settled and for so little. Seems like a lot more was overcharged then $2 Million.

I would suggest setting up a website or blog, for sure.

If I lived in ST all my life I'd shoot myself. I can't wait to move when my lease is up. Fuck this place with its dog shit, students, malicious management and noise. Fuck it hard.

That's the way a lot of us feel, but it isn't that easy for some of us to move. This is our home and we used to love it here. If we could get rid of all of the things you mentioned (especially the malicious management) we would be very happy. Malicious is probably the most appropriate description I've heard so far concerning management. Everything they do is driven by malice, greed, indifference to the tenants, the environment and common decency. It's like having a vile disease affecting the whole place. I think that there should be a thorough investigation and audit of their activities and accounts. Preet, do ya hear me?

I get the anger from the post of 6:49. Exactly what CR likes. POST ON YELP PEOPLE POST ON YELP. LET THE WORD OUT TO ALL THE PROSPECTIVE RENTERS WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO US HERE.

Here, here..... I'm here 16 years and I'm ready to shoot myself (which is, of course, exactly what they want). I'll be gone in 6 years CW, not to worry.

How is there not a way to impeach a councilperson when they are not serving the people?

Stuy Town Reporter said...

If you are talking about Garodnick, there is no way he could be impeached (if that's at all legally possible). Dan won his third term as councilman and is still popular among the old ST/PCV crowd, if one goes by the reaction to him at tenant meetings. The ladies like him. Nice boy.

Is this a real offer for a new TA or another fake out from the guy who said Marsh was stepping down then repeated himself saying he could "confirm" Marsh was stepping down. These guys have pulled so many tricks on this community I am going to need a bit more before I sign up and I do want to join a new Tenant Association, a real one representing the tenant needs. I will even pay double the annual rate to get us started.

Ladies, we do not need a council person we "like" who we think is a nice boy. We need a council person who does their job. If you are not doing your job, then you are not the right person for the job. He is not the right person for this job.

Without being critical, you have no idea what it was like to live in ST-PCV before Speyer. There is no just comparison. ST-PCV infrastructure he destroyed can be repaired. The historic ST-PCV community he killed was irreplaceable.

Post all this on yelp, glass door, BBB and etc. And if the older citizens like Dan, they can thank him for their next MCI. Don't complain ladies & gents as you've been informed and warned. Dan doing nothing about the mci increases, bogus and the phony bogus renovation costs.

I remember that comment who said they have confirmed Marsh was stepping down. We all knew that was a lie. What was the purpose of that trick? Who are they trying to deceive and why? Everyone knows Marsh isn't going anywhere because the pols know he will do whatever they tell him to do so they back him and he will not do what the tenants tell him they need and the pols don't wanna hear it from us so the TA keeps us quiet and talks about bikinis and laundering machines.

CW overcharges us the same as they overcharge Riverton. Bank on it!

If Compass Rock gets the job of managing Co-op City, I wonder if they will destroy it the way they have destroyed PCVST and Riverton? I hope for the sake of the residents of Co-op City that they don't get the contract. Somebody needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Compass Rock is a nightmare of a company. No ethics, no intelligence and no accountability.

The story about Marsh stepping down was obviously made up to deflect from the issues and try to make this look like it is a power play for his "volunteer position". It is arrogance at its finest, ignore the issues and pretend it is jealousy even though evidence points to the contrary. No one went to join this TA. No one believes in its mission and wants to help enrich Toronto company Brookfield.

but we do have to admit that DG and the TA are very very quiet these days. Something is brewing ---- Are we forming a new TA?

Anonymous said...

I'll join a new TA. Can't be any less effective than the old one.

Hope this is for real but I have serious doubts with all the trolls telling lies.

I'd be in also but I'm not sending my email address to someone I don't yet know.

A new TA scares the Marsh Steinberg Garodnick three amigos. Their little flier has a silly line about how they are "The" TA. If that is so, they are the TA then why all the secrecy, the opaqueness, a total complete lack of transparency in their Brookfield deal that protects investors and not tenants? Why hide that "the" TA hired a deeply entrenched REBNY attorney from the morally bankrupt firm Paul Weiss and that REBNY is helping Brookfield help the investors and that REBNY is not helping the tenants but fighting against the tenants in Albany? Why hide the facts on the rent roll of the property? Does "the" TA think they are Obama and this a like the TPP? Maybe that is the problem. They are delusional from the titles they give themselves like President and Chairman when they have no clue what it takes to actually be a President or a Chairman. They completely shirked their responsibilities to the people here. Even JP Morgan says the TA deal is good for Brookfield / investors. Nobody is saying it is good for tenants and evidence shows it has been very bad for tenants. Every morning I step into the Oval I am reminded of the epic failure by these guys but I won't let it destroy my love for my family home. So don't tell us to pack up and leave. We are staying. They may have destroyed the community and park but they cannot destroy our family home. Now Marsh Steinberg want us to tell our stories to Albany and fight beside them in Albany when Marsh and Steinberg and Gardonick have been working with REBNY, helping REBNY Meredith Kane and Robbie's bff partner in crime Brookfield? Marsh/Steinberg/Garodnick became just another REBNY tool, what in hopes of getting in the club? The TA should pack up and leave not our families. We need a new TA and I am 100% on board.
