As we see, nothing much is being done about the many complaints residents have: the discarded furniture on the loops, including the illegal discarding of uncovered mattress; the outside dogs that are infrequently checked for that blue ST lanyard, and their owners escorted out if they don't have one; the lack of R7-2 clarity from our local politicians who seem to be delaying and delaying; the club cars that go this way and that, and many times against regular traffic rules; the failure of our TA to even address those issues, etc. On top of that, residents near the building of the subway extension on 14 Street have had to endure noise and health issues at all hours of the day and night. This is not the way to live. Because of these facts, and a few more, a new representation has to happen. This is where Stuyvesant Town Tenants Advocacy comes in. There are no dues, and plans are underway to get the group doing something proactive about our complaints. The time for submitting our complaints to Management, Public Safety and Blackstone is over.

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:

Blackstone's New Stuy Town - Peter Cooper Promo Video

My initial reaction is disappointment. One of the first things mentioned is that ST/PCV is "pet friendly." If you thought there was going to be a lessening of the dog population in the future, you were wrong. This is a major selling point being used.

"Organized community amenities" is next on the list of major selling points. Blackstone has already shown the value it places in amenities when it introduced itself to us in their literature. (This stress on amenities clearly outed Blackstone as being unaware of the value of this complex placed by most tenants.)

A "fun environment" is also mentioned. When I think of Stuy Town, that's the first thing that comes to mind: FUN!

While most of the rooms shown have some carpeting, there appears to be none at the 51 second mark. I'm always bewildered as to how ST/PCV can show in its promotions either a lack of carpeting or minimal carpeting that does not meet the lease requirements of a tenant.

"A seasonal ice-rink" is part of this promo, of course. So even if the rink loses money, which seems to be the case, it's a selling point and will stay.

There's more being promoted, including the Oval Cafe where you can buy lukewarm coffee and tea and Oval Study where you have your own "corner office" (!) and "library resources" (!). Sorry, but having the daily NY Times and shelves filled with random uncatalogued books that were bought at 10 cents per book, or donated, do not constitute legitimate library resources.

So this is just the same cliched bs that we hear from every landlord. Sad.

If this place was so great, they wouldn't have to advertise it. They never had to advertise it when we had a tree park, beautifully landscaped grounds and a ten-year waiting list. Of course, we didn't have exorbitant rents then, but there wasn't the demand on the fragile infrastructure and resources and the property turned a profit. These extortionist, avarice-fueled bloodsuckers aren't so bright after all, are they? Rob Speyer would have been lucky to get a job stocking shelves in Walmart if it hadn't been for his father's influence! Same goes for most of them!

That video is another example of the Blackstone PR machine. As I anticipated when they bought the complex, they intend to keep the same student and transient oriented
policies. Let us see if they keep those horrible oval concerts. It is too bad that so many tenants fell for their PR. And where is their response to those surveys that they have been promising us. I think that the list of rules in the last rent envelope
is their response---it's that those dorms are here to stay but we addressed it. Live with it.

Who had other expectations from the Stuyvesant Town deal? It had no benefits for tenants. Politicians were saving face making sure it did not disappear on their watch while they made sure Speyer/REBNY plans could continue and also cover his debt.

There is no benefit to constituents. Just more of the same. More broken campaign promises. Last year Albany Silver Skelos. This year City Hall?

Never thought for one moment there would be any kind of rollback of pet policy.

This video makes clear where Blackstone is headed. Stuyvesant Town is destined to become Yuppie-ville. Blackstone and Tishman-Speyer did their market research. The yuppies want dogs. Yuppies can afford higher rents. End of story.

But the open questions remain and should be of concern to everyone. Will Blackstone continue to allow dogs to defecate on the walkways and pee-stain flagstones and granite sidings? What about dog walkers coming in from the outside? What about leashes that extend beyond 6 feet? What about people who don't clean up after their dogs? What do they expect PS to do about the problems? What will be the means of enforcement? What is the downside for PS if found not meeting what mgt expects?

Five weeks have passed since the first meetings with Mr. Hayduk and no word so far. Not hearing anything right away is not a good sign. We know that from recent experience.

It is not really yuppie-ville. It is NYU dorm-ville and hotel accomodations. Well-to-do yuppies who can afford these apartments would rather live in other neighborhoods with true luxury housing. The only people who will be moving into these apartments are students who split the apartment up and transients. I am not surprised. Always thought that the Blackstone deal was a crock. The dog population
seems to be increasing. I do notice that many of the students have dogs.

These are not landmark record breaking real estate purchases as the PR spins. It is a small group of big corporations moving money around between each other incestuously to drive up prices and therefore their own value.

The biggest residential real estate deal in the country and the biggest office deal in the country were both between Canadian Ivanhoe Cambridge and Blackstone

The big banks are moving money around from countries wanting to "invest" in US real estate for the same few big asset managers and mega-conglomerates. It is the same few corporations that come up in these real estate deals againa nd again, and the same few countries top the list at JLL. JLL has some rather interesting client relationships with infamous banks.

MetLife treated this community of people and property like its crown jewel

To Blackstone we, and the Oval are nothing more than an Asset to generate profits.

MetLife was successful for over 50 years and Middle Class were successful raising generations here under MetLife with never a promotional video ad .

It is embarrassing from a business perspective, what Stuyvesant Town has become since 2007

If NYC government was of the people, by the people, for the people, De Blasio would have gone all out as far as pulling an eminent domain if need be and gone co op like Penn South
(like they went eminent domain in Brooklyn but instead of doing it for the people they did it against the people while for the developers and foreign investors and political interests with Barclay Center.

Stuyvesant Town should and could have been the successful east side version of middle class housing as is the successful Penn South

Instead De Blasio and Cuomo serve corporations and not people and went for the east side version of Hudson Yards - to eliminate Middle Class housing and install corporate commercial anchors and luxury towers.

Pioneering what they call neighborhoods of the future a la Paul Weiss Rifkind et al

It is revealing that Town & Village has not run the market rate illegal hotel news. Are they on the side of those making false accusations against the rent stabilized tenants and waiting for that headline to PR the cause against rent stabilized tenants because at the top they are after all owned by Real Estate interests?

The golub meeting and the Town & Viilage coverage of that meeting was troubling too.

The lawsuit against all involved in the harassing and unaddressed Golub claims could encompass a lot of parties who have been involved even in the periphery. That Summer meeting of rent stabilized tenants told to prove themselves by giving all they had to the landlord so the landlord can use that against the tenants in building their cases against tenants was appalling.

Dan Garodnick is a lawyer.

What kind of lawyer advises their clients to give all their proof of evidence against a false claim to an adversary?

I think Mr Garodnick would agree a lawyer truly protecting their client would never tell the client to prove your innocence to an adversary making a false accusation by giving them everything you have to defend yourself.

Someone(s) making a false claim is out to irreparably hurt you. An adversary making a false claim will stop at nothing to support their false claim and they will use all you have, look for holes the courts might be persuaded to exploit to evict you on behalf of NY real estate interests who let's face it, are the ones financing the politicians who pick the judges.

A lawyer should advise the landlord adversary to prove their false accusation and not with circumstantial evidence even if they have falsely created a mountain of circumstantial evidence to support their false claim in the golub. If the landlord has the audacity to make the false golub claim they too will "make" the false evidence to support it.

That meeting made it clear to me who is on what side.

That meeting should have been about tallying the number of rent stabilized tenants in the room, tallying the number of market rate tenants, analyzing the targeting by the landlord and demanding the landlord prove their claim. Not the other way around with the tenant proving their innocence.

That meeting should have been used to harness the power of the hundreds attending in a class action.

That meeting was prolandlord.

That meeting was Un-american. Innocent until proven guilty. Unless in Stuyvesant Town you receive a golub notice then you are automatically guilty and better rove your innocence and lose your home so a higher number of market rate apartments can be achieved.

The Tenant Association has achieved disastrous results for the community and the open spaces. Their resumes show they are capable of achieving good results so the results achieved to date must be deliberate. If the last Golub meeting is any indication of the advice they give and positions they take, then the TA needs to be 100% overhauled. When the TA tells us to do something, we almost always know it is better to do the opposite of what they advise.

Atomic Man said...

12:52, you are either terribly misinformed or terribly naive.

Not saying it's right, but it is what it is... Innocent until proven guilty is NOT how the Golub process works. Unfortunately, the burden of proof is on the tenant. The landlord can refuse to renew a rent-regulated lease if they assert (sometimes based on erroneous or completely unfounded information - that was certainly the MO during the TS reign of terror) that the apartment is not the legal occupant's primary residence. The tenant is then required to furnish proof to the contrary.

Again, it SHOULD be the other way around, and we should be pressing our lawmakers on that. But to say that tenants receiving a Golub should simply stamp their feet and cry, "No!!! YOU have prove I don't live here" will only wind up getting those tenants evicted.

"Just a mention, dorm room residents are not permitted Christmas Trees or pets!"

This only for the official NYU dorms (not sure re the Parsons/New School ones)that are leased directly by NYU for its graduate school programs. Again, how many times must this be posted, the super vast majority of "dorm" style apartments here (at least over a thousand, maybe in the thousands by now) are leased directly by the students (undergraduate and graduate) and the just post college crowd themselves , with their parents guaranteeing the lease. Whether they are students only, combo apartments with students and the recently graduated or just filled with recently graduated millennials, the QOL/infrastructure impact is the same. Transient, dorm style apartments, packed with 3,4 and 5 roommates, that turnover frequently, roommates coming and going and a total disregard for the QOL/lease regulations. These lease regulations, never mind NYC and NYS laws regarding unrelated adults and illegal hotels, do not seem to be enforced by Blackstone as per some recent posts at this blog. We will all soon see whether the “honeymoon” period with Rick Hayduk/Blackstone is over, whether he is legit re the statements he made re the QOL issues here or is he simply just another REBNY bullshitter.

Anonymous said...

Atomic Man is correct. A landlord's false accusations supported by flimsy, poorly documented, sometimes erroneous, sometimes fraudulent evidence raises a presumption that must be successfully rebutted by legitimate tenants improperly forced to prove residency in their homes. Landlord sleaze hellbent on eviction will discover "new" evidence supporting more false accusations to repeatedly drag targeted RS residents into court.

Legislation protecting RS tenants against landlord harassment is kept weak by corrupt politicians owned by REBNY showering them with $$$$$ 24/7/365 ordering them to maintain status quo.

BTW, our PCVST TA is soliciting candidates for elections to represent the best interests of their PCVST neighbors/constituents.

Is the PCVST TA still a value-sharing business partner of deep-pocketed REBNY predator Brookfield investing $25 million supporting and cheerleading Speyer's take-no-prisoners eviction war against PCVST residents?

Do PCVST board members still share values with their deep-pocketed partner Brookfield paying politicians millions of dollars 24/7/365 to maintain RS on a death watch?

Were Brookfield's deep pockets empty when it came time to contribute to Garodnick-TA's phony, now-infamously botched "tenant led purchase" condo scam?

Did Brookfield only share values with PCVST tenants scammed into buying PCVST for Brookfield without Brookfield ever having to reach into its deep pockets that were apparently empty?

Will 25,000 middle class PCVST tenants, 100% RS holding $2.7 Billion Fannie Mae purchase funding, be provided an opportunity to review the 60+ PCVST ownership proposals Garodnick-Moelis rejected before brainwashing current PCVST board members into entering into a formal business partnership with major REBNY predator Brookfield wherein Garodnick-TA promised to divert our $2.7 Billion Fannie Mae purchase funding into Brookfield's deep, empty pockets in exchange for apparently nothing?

Since current TA board members refuse to answer those questions, will candidates campaigning to replace them pledge to answer them?

What about candidates campaigning to replace Garodnick? Will they pledge to find out how 25,000 middle class PCVST tenants, 100% RS holding $2.7 Billion Fannie Mae purchase funding, lost EVERYTHING? Or, will they join the dishonest politician chorus claiming PCVST tenants losing EVERYTHING was somehow a historic, middle class victory while holding out their hands offering to sell themselves and betray constituents in exchange for REBNY $$$$$ ?

"Will 25,000 middle class PCVST tenants"

Excuse me, where are you getting this number and demo from? Wikipedia says "and over 25,000 residents". The reference they use for that number (reference #2) is the official PCVST webpage. CWC/CR slipped out not too long ago that the resident count here was now 30,000. It is to the advantage for whoever who now owns this dorm/motel dump to understate the resident population for marketing purpose. The STR has reported how crowded PCVST seems to be these days. That is due to the impact of the rapid dormification that has substantially increased the adult population here. If you are going to make a statement which does have some valid points, one must always make sure the numbers/demo (the vast majority of dorm style apartments residents here are not true middle class, they are parental funded transients) that you are stating are correct.

Read the election rules which were revised several years ago by the TA Board with the assistance of Paul Weiss. The rules make it virtually impossible for anyone other than an incumbent member of the Board or a friend of the Board to run for a Board seat. Plus part of the rules changes included the adoption of a staggered Board, meaning that only a few members of the Board are up for election in a particular year.

"What about candidates campaigning to replace Garodnick?"

This potential candidate, Diane Grayson, looks interesting. We will see.

"After reading about the aforementioned may-runs in T&V, Grayson said she wants to run because she didn’t feel that any candidate (or current elected official) so far has offered solutions to what she believes is the biggest problem facing the community — the lack of affordable housing.

“I feel that’s something that’s not been addressed,” she said. “I like that (other potential candidates) are alluding to it, but we need real right now solutions.”

Grayson noted that in ST/PCV, with the future availability of affordable units likely to be determined by a lottery, it doesn’t necessarily do anything to help existing tenants.

“A lot of my friends who are third generation can’t afford to stay,” said Grayson. “My best friend just moved to Portland, Oregon. The market rate tenants are completely not being represented and rent stabilized people are saying they also can’t afford to live here.”

The “Friends of the Brooklyn Queens Connector” are, for the most part, friends of higher waterfront property values, seeking public insurance for their private investments in the form of infrastructure development. The line they are proposing is a redistribution of public wealth toward a few of the city’s most powerful actors."

We need to start supporting different kinds of candidates for city council. Maybe someone young with a law degree seems right at first, but here's what happens. Maybe they start out idealistic and motivated. But after one term, they soon find out that money talks and in order to get reelected, they have to start courting the moneyed interests in their districts. Take our district...#4. It holds many middle class New Yorkers but also includes some of the richest people in the entire country. So on any given quality of life issue and given a fairly ill-informed, apathetic public, which way is a councilman most tempted to vote? Other factors: you haven't practiced law in a while. What will you do for a job if voted out of office? You're making less that 150K per year while your former law colleagues are making 500K/yr at least, buying condos, buying places in the Hamptons...what aren't you tempted to do to catch up?
Here's my proposition. Don't vote for anyone who's young. Vote for someone who is retired, on social security, someone so close to the end, he or she is more interested in community service and couldn't care less about getting reelected or the money. Only then might we start getting some decent politicians.
