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.

Remember, you can't spell Chipotle without e-c-o-l-i.

The StuyTown Chipotle has been empty most of the times I've been by there. The one on 23rd St next to the Gramercy Theatre has also been empty lately, and it used to be packed. The criminal case seems to iinvolve their management of employees. If Chipotle was forcing sick employees to work, and if that's what caused the norovirus outbreak, then they need to be seriously punished.

I miss those old family-owned Greek diners. Best coffee in the world in those places. Keep Starbucks and DD.

Anony 4.47 PM. That ad is total BS. "Concierge,
Doorman". Sure.

I read that the reason Chipotle is under investigation is because they made workers show up for work even though they were sick and this is what contaminated the food. Typical of the dominance over the poor by the ruling 1%. The one-percenters will never get sick from food contaminated by workers too sick to work, but too poor not to work. That is a pity.
Btw, I NEVER eat in franchise/chain eateries these days. Therefore, I eat at home a lot (and save money) or go to real restaurants (with table cloths) and spend money. But, I never go to any place that is a franchise in any way, shape or form.

The city has really changed and continues to do so at an alarming rate - pathetically full of banks, nail salons and franchises to eat in.

The Chipotle Virus and what everyone should know when "profit above safety" is practiced. Don't touch the tables, don't eat with your hands.

Doesn't look that impressive when you first walk in. Bet you they close in a year.
