ST-PCV TA urges residents to attend RGB public hearing and final vote

Tenants hold signs at the preliminary vote of the Rent Guidelines Board in May.

The Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village Tenant’s Association sent out a email on Wednesday urging residents to attend the Rent Guidelines Board public hearing on Monday, June 18 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. before the RGB’s final vote on Thursday, June 21, at 5:30 p.m.
Owners and landlords will be present at the hearing, and anyone can register to speak by calling the RGB at (212) 385-2934 by 1 p.m. on Friday, June 15. Both the hearing and the final vote will be held at Cooper Union’s Great Hall, in the basement of 7 East 7th Street.
“In our borough, landlords brought in an average net operating income of $568 every month from each rent-stabilized apartment,” the Tenants Association said. “Demand NO increase. Show support or testify.”
This year, tenants could face an increase as high as 6.75 percent. In May, the range of rents that were voted on were 1.75-4 percent for a one-year lease, and 3.5-6.75 percent for a two-year lease.

  1. It seems that the STPCV TA has sold the FMR tenants down the river. What is the point in opposing these increases when the difference between paying $5900 and $5800 is nil? I honestly hope they overturn RS and eliminate section 8 housing to allow for true market regulation of housing in this city. I am confused how people making in excess of 200k a year are able to keep a rent stabilized apt and therefore drive up the cost of everyone else’s rent.
