Hit CW Capital where it hurts -- at the Leasing Office

Are you angry and fed up with CW Capital?

Let prospective renters know -- at the Stuyvesant Town Peter Cooper Village Leasing Office -- how you feel about what living here has become and why they should talk to residents before they sign a lease.

Tell them about:

  • Staggering mid-term rent increase
  •  Slugging your laundry blocks away because laundry rooms are inoperable
  • Unreliable elevator service  -- months after Sandy
  • Your personal belongings rotting in a shipping container for six months
  • Tepid enforcement of the quality-of-life rules
  • Noisy, disrespectful neighbors
  • Worrying your next maintenance visit might become a security issue

 Prospective renters should hear you.
CW Capital should hear you.

All neighbors, new or tenured, young or old, need to stand together and support this action.  Losing good neighbors means less stability and quality-of-life for all of us.

We'll start this Saturday and Sunday and if enough neighbors respond to our call for weekday shifts, we'll have those, too.

Each 1-2 hour shift will promote our message of what it's really like to live here.

We'll do that by displaying hand written posters, distributing flyers to prospective renters and talking with them in front of the rental office.

  •  We'll tell them about CW Capital's family-busting rent increases. 
  • We'll also make sure prospective renters know about our noisy and inconsiderate neighbors and management's minimal enforcement of its quality-of-life rules.
  • About the recent burglaries and the need to remember to lock up valuables and be present for service appointments.
  • Show them how to check the TA's Bedbug Registry
  • Make sure they know of the legal requirement that leasing agents must disclose which buildings have been infested with bedbugs in the past year.
  • We'll tell them which 17 buildings have rotting basements and no laundry rooms and of managements providing no schedule for resolving building-wide problems.
  • Make sure they understand there is (wink wink) an 80% carpet rule.
  • And best of all, we'll give them homework!  We'll ask them to read the blogs such as Stuytown Report, EscapeStuyTown, Town and Village Newspaper and the TA Facebook and our Official page.

Working together, we can sustain this action for a long time.

  • Retirees and night workers can help on weekdays.
  • Loving grandparents can help watch young ones while moms and dads take a shift.

Can't make a full shift?   Stop by and support your neighbors.  Bring them water or just a smile and a thank-you.
