We Need Your Help!

Many of you may have received a proxy solicitation under your door this evening.  We’re requesting that each of you sign this proxy, which permits Beth Tunney (apartment 5C) to exercise your vote at the upcoming election on June 21.  It’s OK if you’ve already provided your proxy to Classic, as our proxy form will supersede all prior proxies.  After signing, we ask that you deliver the signed form to Beth in apartment 5C (feel free to leave under the door).

Our agenda remains the same as we have previously indicated on this website:

– We want to make that the board is controlled by real owner / occupants, and not our sponsor.  For our sponsor, this is  a pure investment.  For the rest of us, this building is our home.  The sponsor currently has 2 out of 5 seats on the board, and they’re now only entitled to 1.  Our goal is to utilize your proxies to get this 1 seat filed with an owner / occupant who will act in the best interest of all of us, as owners.

– Some of you may think our current building manager is great.  That may or may not be true.  But it’s a fact that they are paid almost double the market rate ($21,5000 above market).  It’s also a fact that our manager is a close affiliate of the building sponsor.  This over market rate needs to end immediately.  Further, a reduction in their fee to market will go a long way to reducing (if not eliminating) the 3.6% monthly maintenance fee that is being implemented.

– We would like to see a proactive and cost effective approach to improving the style and look of the lobby.

– We would like to see a building training program implemented.  Our building staff are wonderful.  However, without proper guidance, we cannot expect them to respond effectively.  Furthermore, current policy in our building does not allow building staff to make any decisions without approval of the building manager.  Many of us feel that this policy has been taken way too far.

If you agree with any of these points, we urge to sign our proxy and return it to Beth in 5C.  As always, feel free to drop us a comment (below) with any feedback.

    Notice about our Elevator at 177 East 77 Street. –

    Last evening Sunday, June 19th at 7PM my wife got trapped in the elevator of our building 177 East 77 Street.

    She was trapped in the elevator between the basement and the first floor. – The doorman on duty called the Elevator company to send a technician. He was told that a technician would come in 90 minutes.

    After communicating with my wife throught the elevator shaft and watching her on the video monitor for some time I concluded that I must call 911 emergency. – Fireman arrived shortly after my call and released her.


    All doorman and apartment personnel should be instructed to call emergency if someone is trapped in the elevator for more than 15 minutes. Please comment here and tell me how you feel about this idea. thanks, Adam12
