Residents who live in 531 East 20th Street have been alerted, via, a notice in the lobby, that the power in the building will be shut down from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. This is due to scheduled repair work on the elevators with Con Ed and an electrical contractor, following three power outages in the building last week.
According to management, public safety officers will be assigned to the building during the hours of the shutdown to assist with any emergencies. The elevators will be out of service. Residents who require medical assistance or have special needs should contact Public Safety directly at (212) 598-5233. Stairwells have emergency lighting, as do all common hallways.
