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:

Letter in T&V on increasing dog walkers using Stuyvesant Town as a Public Park. This problem is not limited to dog walkers, it is long a problem that has worsened when Mayor DeBlasio began advertising tree-stripped Oval as a Public city Park Event Venue on NYCGo.

Mayor DeBlasio and CompassRock turned this private middle class community into a tourist destination / public park. Mayor DeBlasio stop advertising our Oval as your Public Park Event Space in whatever agreement arrangement you made with CompassRock that also allows a hundred new hotels for NYC tourists. A hundred f***in new hotels for NYC tourism to replace once peaceful middle class residence!

We are private residential property, not public parks, public playgrounds for "guests" that are really trespassers, not commercial operations hotels and event spaces.

Mayor DeBlasio you have made a commercial mess of this once peaceful, clean place to raise our families.

If we can't get you out of Stuyvesant Town, we sure can get you out of office by voting for anyone but you.

Hope you are back up and running soon STR

STR, so much juicy stuff going on now. DeB being investigated about his dealings with developers and campaign funding. I hope they go after Garodnick, too!

Please come back soon. I do hope there is no serious problem you are dealing with. I know your health and family are much more important than the blog. Just want you to know that we miss you.
