  1. The following statement from Council Member Dan Garodnick was just released.

    Stuyvesant Town Attempted Rape Suspect Apprehended
    Council Member Garodnick Applauds NYPD on Swift Work

    “I want to congratulate the brave men and women of the NYPD’s 13th Precinct and Special Victims Unit for swiftly apprehending a suspect in Friday’s attempted rape in Stuyvesant Town. An arrest was made on Sunday morning. This was a horrific assault in our community, and we are lucky and grateful to have a police force that investigated this crime with urgency and competence. I also want to thank the management and security of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village for working collaboratively with the NYPD. Residents of the community will rest easier knowing that an arrest has been made.”


    • Councilman Garodnick can thank Managment all he likes, but Management did absolutely NOTHING to alert tenants about the attempted rape. The Tenants Association was the one to try to alert tenants via email and postings on its Facebook page. Management’s lack of response or acknowledgement that such a terrible thing happened here is shameful. They care more about the bottom line and not scaring away potential renters – and their parents – than about the safety of their tenants. Shameful, shameful, shameful behavior on their part. Flyers should have been posted in every building, just like they did to let tenants know what the new charge for their air conditioning would be. They have the manpower to get the job done, but, unfortunately, they lack the humanity, empathy and morality necessary.

  2. None-the-less we should all go to this meeting tomorrow and demand to know why it seems that crimes which occur in Stuytown are publicized as happening in Gramercy and why wanted posters and information is not shared with the Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village community.

  3. Garodnick and Management did a big fat NOTHING. One of the officers at the meeting mentioned that Management had refused them access to post flyers in the buildings when there was another similar assault nearby. Lowlife amoral, money-grubbing filth!
