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:

Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village TB to Officially Market to NYU, Bicycle Riders and Ess-a-Bagel

Dear Resident and TB Supporter,

As many of you have suspected, we, the Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village Tenants Block, have had trouble generating the funds we need to keep on representing tenants in this complex. Why do you think we raised dues recently? With the future leaving of our councilman, the honorable Dan Garodsnip, we realize more than ever that we have to make changes in order to survive.

To wit, our website and our Facebook will now have a marketing strategy that will initially include NYU (perhaps the biggest renter officially and unofficially in this complex), bicycle riders (growing in number as those speeding cycles around the Oval can attest) and Ess-a-Bagel, which has returned and is already making great business.

We have spoken to and have guarantees of acceptance from all three parties. Thank you, thank you and thank you! (Dan thanks you, too.)

Yours sincerely and for more wonderful TB news--

Sue Stain
President and One Piece Bathing Fan
The Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village TB

Speaking of the TA, take a look at their Facebook page. Someone posted about our representatives approving the plan for 14th and C (no one specific named). "Peter Stuyvesant" quickly responded that this is in Rosie Mendez's district, obviously making sure that Garodnick is not called out. All I can say to that is one Vanderbilt Place, which is much worse then this 12 story building.

I have a future post (honestly) about One Vanderbilt Place, Dan's favorite tall, tall high rise.

DeBozo, REBNY and the Garodnicks of this City are causing so much destruction of people's lives and homes. I have so much hatred and contempt for them. I hope DeBozo and Garodnick never, ever hold public office again.

October 2, 2016 at 1:26 PM he is putting his campaign pals in City jobs. No wonder government is failing to do its job, the Mayor puts his pals in jobs where they don't know how to do the job at hand so they can keep getting paychecks until the next campaign tour.

As Tony Shorris says:

De Blasio deputy admits no one’s really running City Hall

His pals get $19 million!

8:43 AM: Usually, I take the NYPost with a pinch of salt because I know it is a very right-wing gutter rag, but I think they sometimes tell the painful truth and this is one of those times. DeB is so arrogant that he thinks he is teflon. Can't wait for his term to be over. I thought Bloomturd was bad, but he didn't pretend to be on the side of the regular New Yorkers. DeB is such a phony.

Hmm... I don't know about right wing. I also don't know about our other papers. But enough of this sidetrack to the real story!

The corrupt bank that screwed StuyTown, the bank that pulled the hat trick representing the buyer, the seller while they owned the broker Eastdil just got pulled from the State of Illinois for screwing 2 million American citizens

When are we going to see some heads roll? I'm talking about heads at the top, not the minions who were forced to engage in dishonest and repulsive practices in order to keep their jobs. Almost like Wells Fargo was running a nasty brothel.

Sorry doesn't cut it. These evil execs need to get some jail time, and NOT in Club Fed.
