AN OFFER: PAY ME ONE DOLLAR FOR EVERY INFRACTION THAT I SEE--A UNCOVERED MATTRESS ON THE LOOP, DOG DO-DO NOT PICKED UP, OUTSIDE DOGS BEING WALKED INTO ST OR PCV. ONE DOLLAR FOR ONE PHOTO. I KNOW MANAGEMENT READS THIS BLOG, SO ACCEPT MY OFFER. BLACKSTONE WILL BE SO MUCH BETTER.

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:

Rise and Shine!

Photo taken this morning....


And a blast from the past (not that long ago, either):

This is so disgusting and they get away with it. It also shows that an increasing number of people living in these apartments are transients. Probably the only things in the apartments are mattresses and a chair.

The cheerleader trolls can use those dirty uncovered mattresses on their Adirondack chairs as they watch the film tomorrow evening.

The new problem is Uber drivers (any form of driver) pissing all over the property.

MORE PEACE AND QUIET

a very sick joke. So hilarious Rick.

BTW, those mattresses are still there. After 2 pm.

Not surprised

The new advocacy group for tenants (as opposed to transients and others whom I will not publicly insult by describing them) will be operational when, please?

Stuy Town is a pile of trash.

Why can’t Hayduk add a warning about unwrapped mattresses and garbage dumping on his inane leaflet of events that comes with the rent. I guess he doesn’t want to offend his main demo here, the dorm and transient slobs. Unbelievable how they tolerate this filth.

Mattresses and garbage piled high and not a peep out of the Blackstone Tenant Association.

Wilbur Ross is running dorms in the (supposedly former) Brookfield Partnership apartments.

I like the valuable info you provide for your articles.
I will bookmark your blog and test again here regularly.
I am rather certain I'll learn many new stuff right right here!
Best of luck for the following!

What tenants association. It doesn’t exist

They are deliberately running this place as a slum. NYCHA property looks cleaner and better kept. In fact, on the outside it looks very much like the projects. However, you don't see mattresses and garbage strewn all over the grounds of NYCHA projects. It is getting really squalid here and I believe it is deliberate. I just can't figure out why they are doing it. I'm sure the reasoning behind the deliberate trashing of the grounds is as squalid as the appearance of StuyTown. I'm embarrassed to live here.

Management really should check the IDs of people attending the events because there are a lot of children living here and several Registered Sex Offenders living nearby. Check the Sex Offender Registry.

Did we ever learn anything about the guy who killed himself and endangered the lives of an entire building-full of people (and injured rescue workers)? Sulfuric acid is the stuff used for acid attacks on people, so who knows what the occupants of that apartment were up to.

Right now it is read only. But operational in a way.

Just posting photos and reading complaints will not lead to change. It is necessary to send these photos to local politicians. That might not affect change either, but at least it is more than just reading a blog. I do like the blog, but I just feel that it is not useful in affecting change at this point. I do send my photos out.

Not understanding how this reflects a new TA.

I feel the same way.

Don’t think that it is exactly deliberate. They want the sky high rents and the only way to get them is to rent to students, Airbnb, and transients. The slum like conditions are a consequence which they choose to ignore, as long as they can collect those high rents.

"More Peace and Quiet." Who are they kidding? Should be "More Piss and Shite."
