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.

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

And that's where STPCV is heading and its surroundings.

Totally off topic, but I'm posting anyway. Am in a restaurant and a Korean War Vet came
I'm selling flags. I bought a couple from the old guy and thanked him for his service. My dad was at the relief of Belsen and I even saw him in a documentary by Hitchcock. What is going to happen to our Iraq and Afghanistan vets? The are treated like shit by this oligarchy of Bloombergs, Koch
Bros and other useless parasites. I am sick of the status quo. We have not advanced at all.

The government is supposed to work for the people, protect the people, but the Cuomo government and his obedient underlings, shallow in surface-superficial-values, serve only Money. The West Village as is here, can thank the underlings Hoylman, Wright, all in city council, Garodnick, Kavanagh, Stringer, Schneiderman. All who obey Cuomo and worship money want to rid of the People of higher values; People to whom "family values" isn't a catch phrase to use during campaigns in PR photo ops with their kids. Their actions and results while in office speak louder than all their years of campaign words.

For years the incumbents have failed the People. Probably for their entire careers as it takes years to develop policies and laws to wipe out trillions in middle class assets and America's largest middle class residential community, which took Cuomo Speyer Committee just over 5 years to rid of 20,000 People in PCVST.

She is a waste of space, go direct to your Property Manager and PS. If needed, escalate to Legal. Good luck, you will need it. And let Blackstone know via an attachment to their survey your issue.

New York could easily and appropriately change the name of its capital from Albany to Avarice

One can call service or simply go to "The Bunker" at the First Ave loop to ask who their property manager is. It's that simple.

Hopefully, the RE bubble will burst again. Maybe it will take another Wall Street crash.

First knock on their door and tell them to stop. Write them a letter and ask that they stop. If they continue, get a broome handle and bang on the ceiling very loudly when they make noise, keep banging yntil they come down to see you or they call Security. They will stop 9 times out of 10.
