They were big in the 60's tenants and Neighbors.When I was at the RGB meetings NYSTNC
of couse was a principle player, in most of the organizing.One women
sitting near me it sort of shocked me got up and started
pointing at them NYSTNC, it was last year can't remember what she
said but after she said it walked out. now
is on them.Like it or not, there going to be around in the year
2000 whateverr when were dragged into court again to take away
stabilized apartments that I and some other millions of people
live in. But , I hate to break the bad news , we don't have a chance in hell
in winning, so lets become rich somehow, and buy or own politicians, and
tenant front groups.

: Did it occur to anyone?

: 1. It's a chance for a politician to take credit for something.

: 2. They know it won't be passed given Albany's gridlock; it's called a
: modified poison pill.

: 3. The entire charade was created by NYSTNC, the supposed tenant group
: really controlled by the Democratic Party to keep Dems arms length from any accountability.
: These are the same people that allowed the horrendous RRRA'97 to come into effect and had the
: audacity to call it a victory.

: The issue of drywall decontrol has been around for a while. For many years
: DHCR policy has been to create a "first rent" for a new unit, when the
: outer dimensions of the unit have changed. If the first rent results in a
: rent over $2,000, the unit can be decontrolled. This is a scam, but it is also
: nothing new. Where was Conner and NYSTNC (AKA Tenants & Neighbors) when this was
: going on many years ago? Maybe they didn't need a news conference at that point.

: Usually however, depending on a number of factors,
: apartment outside walls aren't just drywall; they must comply with fire wall
: requirements (depends on the building and locality).
