You're welcome, Marsha 2 and Marsha Too! I talk from experience -- I grew up on the first floor which was connected to the lobby and at all hours we heard people yelling and kids throwing stuff around. People don't realize how annoying it can be having people congregate and loiter in the lobby of an apartment building, unless THEY themselves lived on the ground floor!

: Thank you so much! I am one of those persons who live on the ground floor and it never ceases to amaze me how insensitive people are. For some reason people do think it is their right to congregate in the lobby. The things that they do in the lobby, they wouldn't do in their apartment. I jut don't get it...

: : While a lobby does serve as a waiting room, it is not one for an apartment building. In a hotel, yes, but not an apartment building. A lobby in an apartment building is NOT a hangout spot. If you lived on the ground floor attached to the lobby, then you would understand the noise levels that can go on all day and all night long. I never did understand why kids would be hanging out in the lobby, being loud and playing music, shouting and being silly -- they cna do that in their parents' apartment -- which they were probably told not to do in their parent's homes, but to do outside!

: : : RIDICULOUS. A lobby is for waiting and hanging out in. That is what it is for. it is a public space. My coop onthe Upper West Side kind of tried this because ewe have some uptight residents with control problems but it is their [problem. Your lanlord cannot dictate this. You just get a petition and get residents to write angy letters about it and hold to your guns. It is absurd.

: : : : what restrictions can the landlord place on lobby use? our building (rental, approx 100 units Bronx, NY) landlord recently posted a sign stating that "the lobby cannot be used as an area for congregating or as a play area for youngsters" he stated that we "must wait outside for children returning home from school."
