Comment Policy

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. Things like the carpet rule or outsider dogs. These "rules" tend to be ignored, on purpose it seems. 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, though the "selling" of this place is intense. Few of the "rules" will be enforced, as Management doesn't want to lose customers or potential customers. Where personal integrity is a hallmark of an excellent management style, this integrity is not seen in enforcing some of the rules.

Our Tenants Association is, basically, null and void. Oh, it is still around, but it lacks the will power to confront much of anything. The TA will ask for your dues, however. By now, the TA is a charade.

About those "club cars" we see going this way and that way, and outside of Stuy Town or Peter Cooper Village:

Blogger Error - Comments Not Working

I've been informed, and have verified, that when someone wants to make a comment to a post, they are receiving a "NOT FOUND Error 404" message.

I'm looking into this and will try to correct it as soon as possible.

UPDATE 6/28: From my end I haven't been able to fix the comment error, so I'm waiting to hear back from Blogger on this issue. I have no idea how long I'll have to wait.  A couple of comments have managed to go through, somehow, but the comment form is still not working properly.

Whatever the case, this blog will continue, one way or another!

Meanwhile if you want and need to comment, you can send me an email at:

Please indicate what post you are responding to.

I will just post your text and not your email address.

Thanks! We'll see if others can comment.

I tried it out, and when I'm off my Reporter sign-in, it is NOT working for me. From what I've read, it could be a "cookie" setting of one's browser, which Blogger may have done something with recently.

So, some people may be able to comment if their cookie setting is set on low.

Or it could be one's browser or computer.

Hopefully, I'll get an answer in the next day or so.
