New Doorman

The Board is pleased to announce that we have hired Ubiel Penafort as our newest doorman.  Ubiel was most recently a host and doorman at the Hotel Edison, where he honed the skills that made him an excellent candidate.  He has been with us on a trial basis for the last several weeks and the board decided this week to extend him a permanent offer.  We are delighted to have Ubiel in our building.

Is email just a passing fad?

We’ve come to the conclusion that it’s going to be around for a while so we’re jumping on this bandwagon. If you are reading this in your email, you’re on our list. If you’re reading this on our website and you’d like to be added to the list, click on “mailing list” above in the menu bar. We’d like to begin to notify you of building news via email, whenever there is an update on the website.

Rest assured you will not get email from us everyday. If there’s no news, there will be no email. Of course you can easily opt out if you have a sentimental attachment to the paper-under-the-door mode of communication.* But give this a try – it might save a tree or two. It will definitely cut down the amount of time our staff spends making copies and slipping them under 190+ doors.

You can email me with comments or suggestions, opt out or let us know if you’d like us to update your email address. Change is good.

Installation of New Carbon Monoxide/Smoke Detectors

Building Staff will require access to your apartment to install a new carbon monoxide/smoke detector. You will be required to sign, acknowledging that the detector(s) was/were installed, either during the installation or afterwards if you are not present during the installation. If you recently installed your own unit, the Staff will need to record the date on the back of the device for our records. Access to your apartment will be required so if you cannot be home, please make sure keys are left with the Superintendent or other Staff member. Thank you for your cooperation.
