Unless there's some big surprise coming (very, very doubtful), the REBNY has won in general terms. There will be a few small victories for the crowd that's concerned about New York, but if you look around, you can see who is winning.
In Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, the "battle" is about over, if not over. The new landlord, basically Blackstone, has won. The dogs are here to stay and their population will increase; the dog waste will increase, too. Oops, there goes an accident! Sorry about that!
Our population has also increased, by the thousands. A lot are students, which will not change; and a lot are new family tenants, which will not change either. Money, money, money. Partitions, flex apartments. As long as most tenants are white with a good sampling of Asians, we don't care. This may change in the future, but I'm not interested in that battle, and I doubt there will be one.
The old Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village is gone, never to return.
As I said, I think the best we can do is to hope for relative peace and quiet as we await, or are already into, our "golden years." If you want to continue the fight, go ahead. You are more than welcome to it, but I do think you are basically wasting your time.
