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:

New Afforable Housing in Stuvesant Town

In case you didn't know it, we have a Lottery for "affordable" housing in this community that is ending March 10th, that's today!

Like our local paper, Town & Village, I am just reporting the news. Let the facts speak for themselves.

The promo is all over the internet, but also here at:

Now if you and/or your family make a minimum of $84,150, you may be in luck! Your "affordable" Stuy Town apartment may be a reality, just check the details. And it helps if you have more money and maybe more occupants, but that's another story. (Quotes are not meant for editorial purposes, but just to highlight the advantages.)

Some of the work, I will do for you, being a nice guy.

First look at the promo. Then examine the promo:

Again, it's at:

Now what is interesting is that your lease demands 80% floor covering with a carpet. Don't forget, I am just reporting the facts:

The Five Stuy Cafe is lovely, but just be aware of the dog piss on the stone barrier, seen here, and the piss and refuse in the walkway.

Yes, it appears you can have wallpapering, just be sure to okay it with the landlord! Remember, when you move out, you have to take down this wallpaper and revert your apartment to its original state. There is cost involved, but, hey, you've got the money as someone who can afford an affordable apartment in Stuy Town.

Now a lot of what we see is taken by a drone. Oh, oh... This is what I read:

Remember the attention our community (troublemakers) has with a drone? Well, Stuy Town must have gotten a special dispensation because they are advertising, quite openly, "Stuy Town Drone Video" on their website. Way to go, Blackstone!

Anyway, hurry, hurry! You may have an affordable apartment in Stuy Town soon!

"Actually, Blackstone is about pure greed and Blackstone doing what Blackstone does best to get what Blackstone wants is far less odious than the lying, scheming Garodnick-TA Board betraying us and stabbing us in the back for years while simultaneously making false claims about defending us against the same REBNY/Wall Street predators they were taking money from and partnering with."

Well said. Btw, what has the TA done to deserve half of the left-over money from the Roberts award? Did they help at all with that case?
