StuyTown Property Services is warning residents to be mindful after a few “isolated incidents” of packages being rifled through and going missing from building hallways.
The warning came via an emailed newsletter on Saturday, and went on to say management is reviewing surveillance footage from the affected areas and security is beefing up patrols at those addresses.
The chief of Stuy Town’s public safety department, William McClellan, said, “We would like to take this time to remind residents to not let anyone into the building that isn’t known to them personally. This is an easy way for non-residents to gain access to our buildings and potentially compromise the building’s security. It may seem impolite but it is an important matter of safety.”

The streets surrounding Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village are getting a $200,000 facelift.
The project, which is being paid for with funds allocated by Council Member Dan Garodnick, isn’t just cosmetic, however.
Service roads around the property from 14th to 23rd Streets will be repaved as will any curb cuts in need of smoothing, and the medians or islands on 14th Street, 20th Street and First Avenue will be repaved to make them wider for wheelchair users. Some, though not all of the cobblestones along with islands will be removed in order to do this. Currently, obstructions for anyone in a wheelchair user include signs and bus stops. Additionally, any cracks along the medians will be filled.
