Stuy Town residents file rent reduction claim
Residents of Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village are seeking a rent reduction for services lost in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
According to the tenants association for the massive East Side Manhattan apartment complex, an assortment of laundry rooms, elevators, intercoms and bicycle storage facilities remain unusable more than three months after the storm.
As a result, the association has decided to file a claim with the state’s Division of Homes and Community Renewal.
“People have been extremely patient,” City Council member Dan Garodnick, a Peter Cooper resident, said Friday in a statement. “Restoring basic services has taken much longer than anyone could have expected. While work is ongoing, residents should not be forced to pay for services that they are not getting.”
A spokesman for CWCapital Asset Management, which runs the site on behalf of investors, could not be reached Sunday for comment.
