  1. This is why Playground # 11, which is just off Avenue C, between 16th and 20th Streets, needs to be eliminated, to thereby negate loiterers, potential predators/criminals, and non-residents from entering, and until then, it needs to be constantly locked, with admission only by resident card swipe/entry, and the hours changed to 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. An open community garden, with security patrolling, would deter unsavory and criminal elements from entering our community, engaging in crimes against persons, and using our facilities.

    • Maybe you should pay attention – they are installing key card readers at the entrances of all playgrounds on the property. You should be thankful for that, because that’s as much as you are going to get in this ongoing babble that you spew.

      Also, playground 11 has absolutely nothing to do with this attack, and you equating what happened in this attack to the people who use playground 11 is sickening and borderline racist. I really hope management is monitoring you to make sure you are not letting any potentially “criminal” patients wander your building.

  2. Why hasn’t T&V reported on the man who died after he jumped from the roof of a building in Stuyvesant Town on January 22?

    • Town& & Vivian Village has a finite number of reporters who have to cover the many numerous events which occur each week.

      Also 28th only usually about 14 to perhaps 16 pages available for each week’s edition there will have to include some important pieces.

      Even the venerable N.Y. Times whose known for: .All the news that’s fit to prinr,” mist make similar decisions.
