All comments to posts have to await approval. Approval does not happen immediately. NOTE: Comments reflect the opinions of the person writing them and should not be assumed to reflect the opinion of the blog.

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.

Even if an authority takes action against this con, they will do so in the name of others being conned and not on behalf of PCV ST tenants. No one will help PCV ST tenants - Paul Weiss and Moelis will see to that. They will only help the investors. The developers. Not the tenants.

I think the Federal Trade Commission should look into the activities of CW/CR because they are practicing "Bait & Switch" tactics; they are lying to prospective tenants and they are doing a pretty lousy job all round. I wonder which politicians' pockets are getting lined by them?

If I were a prospective renter, I'd be extremely hesitant to sign on the dotted line after looking at those Yelp reviews. The positive ones are very brief and vague, the negative ones are long and detailed about all the misery inflicted on them by the asshats running the show these days.

I've said this before, but given all the horror stories posted there, all anyone need do is stand in front of the leasing office and hand out flyers saying "Don't believe us, just look at Yelp" if they really wanted to stick it to CW real good.

Agree. Because those who are supposed to be fighting for us are actually fighting against us and they do not even care that we know they are fighting against us when they all get their photos taken with REBNY. Will Meredith Kane, REBNY lawyer for the Tenant Association be on the bus to Albany fighting with us tenants? Or will she be giving REBNY arguments to kill us off and evict us? If she will be on the bus with us I want to sit with her and have a few words with her before she throws us under the bus entirely.

These are such blatantly dishonest and phony reviews, obviously posted by management.

I was on line behind a bunch of students at one of the local stores tonight and they were discussing how much they feel ripped off by Stuyvesant Town. They were discussing that even though they actually like the apartment all FIVE of them are sharing, they know they could do much better elsewhere. One of them said that her mom and dad were not going to pay the outrageous rent going forward because they could get better for less elsewhere. One of the things that they were pissed off about (no pun here) is that they have only one bathroom between between all five of them as the apartment was originally a one-bedroom. One of them said that management treats tenants as though it is a privilege to live here instead of it being an overpriced dorm that management should be grateful to be able to rent out!
I didn't catch all of the conversation, but enough to know that these are not happy campers and feel like they are being abused and exploited by a really creepy company.

I think that pretty much invalidates all of Yelp's postings. Not the the place to go to in order to get a fair and unpaid for review of anything.

I think you can, as long as you don't block the doors. The TA did this with their limited mid-lease protests, where they handed out flyers outside the leasing office. Obviously someone (Public Safety?) would try to bully you away, but I don't think that legally they, or anyone else, can move you.

A question we all have had to ask dozens of times over as many illegal acts committed in PCVST to tenants and the property, that are followed by inaction from the TA and Dan. I gave up reporting these illegal instances to Dan and to the TA years ago because they do not do anything about it. I take that back. They sweep it under the rug as if it never happened.

Because 5 partying transients making their long term RS neighbors miserable drive the middle class out of their ST-PCV homes. The apartment gets churned and 5 new, ripped off transients paying MR move in.

Dan gets rewarded for giving Brookfield a renovated, transient occupied, MR unit. Brookfield will quickly dump out transients to sell expensive, full price condo units without having to wait for middle class RS tenants unable to afford expensive, tiny discount condo units, to die.

Dan is just another REBNY owned NY politician following the path clearly laid out before him by Silver, Skelos, et al. Let's hope Preet is taking a hard investigative look at ST-PCV being raped and plundered AGAIN ... AND BY THE SAME CULPRITS!!!

Still, it's hard to figure what the TA Board is getting for selling out themselves and their neighbors/constituents to Brookfield, disgracefully flushing a truly historic legacy down the toilet. WTF???

>>I just found out our apartment had a former tenant paying $1022.00. We moved in 3 mnths ago. Our rent is no where near this price and we ARE IN SHOCK. What is going on here .<<

Apartments here carry a wide range of rental prices based on how many times the unit has been turned over. It's not clear from what you wrote if the former tenant had an apartment that was renovated completely or just a new bath and kitchen (which they may have put in on their own). At this point, it's impossible to get an apartment for that price or even 2K. I'd assume the starting price, if one is lucky, would be at least 3K plus. But check that "base rent"! It could be more, in which case the landlord can, and probably will, raise the rent upon lease renewal time.

9:48 it sounds like you are being overcharged. go file with DHCR and when you are them for a Rent History. We got our rent History going back to 1980's and with the number of turnovers we are being OVERCHARGED too. Go get your rent history.

These are beautiful apartments. However, you can find a apartment just as beautiful in the heart of Manhattan at Peter Cooper Village/Stuyvesant Town. PCVST is a beautiful community that offers no-fee apartments. They are also located on 80-acres of lovely and lush gardening.

@9:48 Because they say the kitchen and bathroom upgrades cost them 80k. Total Boss Tweed pricing. You can thank Dan Garodnick and the TA for this.

Anonymous said...

I am aware it would not be 2k, but we are way past that number. How does it go from 1022 to almost 4000. The prior tenant did not have it renovated and had been living in the flat for almost 30 years.

Stuy Town Reporter said...

But the renovation has been done now? That ups the rent considerably, but, yes, this may be an overcharge.

Wow. NYU is a private business that is in a battle with communities of the Mayor's constituents, the East and the West Village and PCVST. This private business has no business paying for city official's trips. Then again the board of this private business are considered by the Mayor to be best and brightest top 100.
This is not progressive. This is regressive.

Accepting this paid trip gift from NYU is in conflict with your constituent's quality of life and survival of our communities.

As a middle class community 11,000 strong in voice and votes we should have had a REAL Tenant Association making demands with oral and written words as this and making demands and feared and revered by landlords and politicians as a force to be reckoned with. That is what a real TA is and does. A force independent of politician's agendas and influence on behalf of RE and REBNY.

“It’s time for you to stand with tenants, strengthen the rent laws, and end corruption in Albany for good," the Alliance For Tenant Power wrote in a letter to Cuomo obtained by the Daily News.

"The best way to show that Glenwood is not influencing your decisions in any way is by rejecting their tainted money and saying in public that the scandal-scarred firm should never contribute to you again," the letter says. "You face a stark choice: you can be the Governor of Glenwood or the Governor of New York."

STR 1:21 we will try to get that for you in the next week(s)
We are down a few people who are away on other business. It is off immediate topic but they sent this explaining how easily, between New York and UK, a few people are able to and are rigging the entire system against everyone else to make a few million dollars for themselves. It is a very short quick article.

http://www.expressandstar.com/business/city-news/2015/05/27/trader-tried-to-rig-key-hsbc-rate/

A "greedy" City trader tried to involve his "cheeky young graduate" stepbrother in an attempt to rig a key interest rate, a court has heard.

Prosecutor Mukul Chawla QC told the jury: "When he says 'kept it artificially high', that speaks for itself.

"If you needed a clearer example of deliberate rigging of rates, this is it.

"This is strategic, focused. Nothing to do with bank's borrowing rates, all to do with Mr Hayes's trading position."

It may be off immediate topic but it is closely related. The people who crashed our housing markets are now profiting from the crash they caused.

"since the last economic crash it's been busy buying up housing stock across the United States and Europe."

Goldman Sachs, Procter Gamble, Pfizer, Monsanto, etc just bought the US Senate.What a joke!

http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/may/27/corporations-paid-us-senators-fast-track-tpp

“It’s a rare thing for members of Congress to go against the money these days,” said Mansur Gidfar, spokesman for the anti-corruption group Represent.Us. “They know exactly which special interests they need to keep happy if they want to fund their reelection campaigns or secure a future job as a lobbyist.

“How can we expect politicians who routinely receive campaign money, lucrative job offers, and lavish gifts from special interests to make impartial decisions that directly affect those same special interests?” Gidfar said. “As long as this kind of transparently corrupt behavior remains legal, we won’t have a government that truly represents the people.”

I can't tell if it is the media or the politicians who just don't get it.

They keep saying Albany is in turmoil from the arrests of corrupt politicians but the truth in fact is Albany has been in turmoil all the years the corrupt politicians held office. Their arrest shook things up in a good way, it removed the dirty turmoil.

The arrests did not cause a turmoil. The years of corruption caused years of turmoil and now with the arrests there is a little bit of peace.

People all over the state have been upset with Albany for decades and are happy with the arrests, anxiously awaiting more. It will take more arrests to clean house, city and state.

The New york Attorney General is right. We need bold reforms. The government is giving our taxpayer dollars to the corporations who are kicking it back to the Senators.

"In the big picture, corporate handouts are costing tens of billions of dollars a year. Some estimates put it over $100 billion -- which means it's costing you money that would otherwise go to better schools or roads, or lower taxes.

...obscuring where federal spending actually goes. In reality, only about 12% of federal spending goes to individuals and families, most in dire need. An increasing portion goes to corporate welfare.

The real issue isn't the government's size. It's whom government is for.

Much of government is no longer working for vast majority it's intended to serve.

If government were responding to public's interest instead of moneyed interests, it would be providing more support for communities, families, and individuals who need it most.

There's no reason any corporations should be on the dole, or that your hard-earned dollars should be going to them for no reason but their political clout.

So we have to demand an end to corporate welfare.

No more handouts to particular corporations and industries simply because they're big enough and powerful enough to get them. No more specialized tax breaks. No more exemptions or special treatment. No more crony capitalism."

This was inevitable.

Standard business policy maintained by NYC real estate developers - a blanket refusal to construct anything but luxury housing - is now quickly spreading throughout USA.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/new-luxury-rental-projects-add-to-rent-squeeze-1432114203

New Luxury Rental Projects Add to Rent Squeeze

"A focus by builders on high-end apartments helps explain why rents are soaring across the country

Developer Mark Randall cut his teeth over the last few decades building apartments for Atlanta’s middle-class … in contrast to one of his newer projects, a luxury project dubbed Inman Quarter … units feature quartz countertops and the complex has a rooftop club room; the ground floor is filled with retail stores and restaurants. Rents in the complex,… run as high as $4,000 a month.

Mr. Randall’s shift from moderately priced to luxury apartments is emblematic of a broader trend taking place in cities across the U.S. — and partly explains why apartment rents are climbing at a rapid pace.

Of 370,000 multifamily rental units completed from 2012 to 2014 in 54 U.S. metropolitan areas, 82% were in the luxury category, according to CoStar Group Inc., a real-estate research firm. The firm defines luxury buildings as those that command rents in the top 20% of the market. In some places, including Denver, Tampa, Baltimore and Phoenix, virtually all new apartment construction has been targeted to high-end renters. In Atlanta, about 95% of new apartments have been in the luxury category.”

Does it seem like to anyone else Cuomo is deliberately hurting NYC'ers in a political game of power, using us as little pawns to kick to the curb if anyone stands up to him for what frankly is rightfully ours in the firs place? He treats people like they are disposable when they do not suit his whims or bow down. The latest press out of Albany is scary. He pits upstate against downstate and now it seems he is trying to divide Long Island from NYC, pitting us against each other.

Warren has good words in the news today

...the people in Washington, too many of the people in Washington, do not represent the folks who elected them. They represent the rich and powerful who don't want their taxes raised, who don't want to see any change. Who are perfectly happy with things where they are, indeed they're doing great with things where they are.

And they stay in the ear of enough of the folks in Washington that it has made it impossible to get any kind of change.

The only way we get change is when enough people in this country say I'm mad as hell and I'm fed up and I'm not going to do this anymore.
