We recommend that you leave a set of your apartment keys with the Superintendent for use in emergency situations only. All keys are kept in a locked cabinet, which the staff will access, in emergency situations. If your apartment is accessed in emergency situations, the Superintendent will inform you of the reason and the action taken.
If you opt not to leave your keys with the Superintendent, any expense or damages incurred in gaining access to your apartment in the event of an emergency will be your responsibility. This includes the cost of a locksmith or any other damage to your door. Please keep in mind that this request is in the interest for the safety, health and well being of all residents.
Keys left at the front desk for nannies, housekeepers, dog walkers, or any other visitor, must be picked up when you return to the building at the end of the day. The staff nor the 200 East 16th Street Housing Corp. can be responsible for keys left at the desk over night.
Your cooperation is appreciated.
