The Stuyvesant Town–Peter Cooper Village Tenants Association will hold a public meeting to decode for residents the terms of the settlement arrived at by the TA and CWCapital regarding recent Major Capital Improvement (MCI) rent increases. The meeting will take place on Saturday, May 10 at 1 p.m. at Intermediate School 104, East 20th Street between First and Second Avenues. Space is limited, so seating will be first come, first served.
The meeting will be divided into three parts:
Part 1. City Council Member Dan Garodnick will sum up the latest news about what we can expect from the new city administration. Tenants Association attorney Tim Collins will explain the settlement and the money it has saved virtually every tenant. State Senator Brad Hoylman and Assembly Member Brian Kavanagh will discuss the outlook for changing tenant-unfriendly laws, how these laws can be changed and how tenant action can help, especially with rent law renewal coming up next year.
Part 2. A question-and-answer period will be devoted to MCIs in general and the settlement in particular.
Part 3. Residents will be invited to move to tables set up by category for guidance on questions or problems regarding their own leases. They are urged to bring copies of their leases so they can get the most informed responses.

  1. All tenants should boycott this meeting. The TA has only it’s board of directors interests at heart. Dan Garodnick is worse as he is pushing his own agenda which includes a boatload of money for many of his largest financial supporters, he should be looking at jail time not making a killing off tenants backs.

  2. Re: Two comments above by “KBOP” and “ANONYMOUS”

    It easy to diss’ the ST-PCV Tenanants Association. But, both of you offer no reasons or documentation for your assertions. Why? Until you offer some credible reasons, I think that folks should ignore your beyond vague criticisms.

    • Then ignore it. You are constantly asking for detail this and detail that. Do your own heavy lifting as many others have. Do your research and find out the FACTS. Stop reading the T&V expecting things the TA doesn’t want you to know to come and bite you in the ass. The TA is counting on folks like you to support them even though they will not tell you what they are doing. Ask them how many apartments are members, ask them who approved their deal with Brookfield. Ask Dan Garodnick exactly how much his former law firm and other supporters will make off the deal. I did and that’s why I know. You can do the same or you can keep holding the TA’s water. It’s your choice.

  3. The TA should be calling for a rent strike after the lies they have been told by CW Capital they have always been in this for their own greed,big guy gets everything little guy eats poop!
