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:

110 Reasons Why You Should Never Leave New York City

This list is just trying to convince me to MOVE.

As to the writer or writers, I smell hipster big time. All that "bodega" stuff is a give away. Probably not native New Yorkers, too. Please, just stay away from this community!

Off topic but a little reminder of history

He kept his work on zero of the things he promised. And the things he said he would do, he ended up doing the opposite of. He protected nothing. And stopped anyone who was trying to protect the community and the property.

A big stab in the back

Does the Tenant Association realize they should have been sitting with the tenants and not the politicians and landlord? That meeting was shakespearean, me thinks thou dost protest too much

It was a bad joke. The pols were honored by each others presence. They applauded one another in front of all of us. Trying way too hard to convince us of their very good deal.

If Cuomo and Mulrow had any balls, they would have shown their faces.

I am embarrassed to say if I had the assignment to write this article when I was in my twenties, I might have written at the same maturity level.

It would be interesting to see this same person write the list in 10 years, then 20. It is probably a combination of immaturity and the level of generic our cities have become, where 75% of his list could be Anywhere USA, suburb or city.

A lack of character in our cities, and an undeveloped character in a young adult.
