2 Hallway Fires This Week, Dog Waste And Trash Among Problems Reported By Roosevelt Island Resident Of Roosevelt Landings - Embarrassed To Invite Friends Over Says Resident
A Concerned Roosevelt Landings residents reports:
I am hoping you will be able to help bring quick and loud attention to this appalling behavior in 546 Roosevelt Landings. Attached are two pictures of fires set this week in the 3rd floor of 546 Main Street. The smaller one was set earlier in the weekI asked Roosevelt Landings management, Urban American, and Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department for comment earlier today.
and the larger one was set last night.
I am not sure if this is happening on other floors but this is horribly embarrassing that people are consistently engaging in this behavior.
Roosevelt Landings is already in a state where I am too embarrassed to invite friends over because I am not sure what they may encounter in the hallways (dog waste, trash, people smoking in the elevators, and now open fires). I hope that you may be able to bring more attention to this so that PSD or UA will actually ramp up the security in this building since Roosevelt Landings is already the armpit of Roosevelt Island.
Will update when response received.
UPDATE 9:45 PM - Another Roosevelt Landings resident adds:
PSD does nothing! There are people sleeping in the staircases as well. I was doing laundry, and there were two people, female and male sleeping in the laundry room. Looked at me like I was in the wrong doing my laundry while they slept.RIOC Public Safety Director Jack McManus replied to my inquiry:
We are aware of these incidents and are deploying our resources accordingly. There have been no arrests to report at this time.Roosevelt Landings management distributed this flyer
to residents this afternoon advising of a small number of recent fires in the AVAC garbage rooms and offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the identification and conviction of those persons responsible for the fires.
UPDATE 10:10 PM - Urban American's Josh Eisenberg replied to my inquiry:
The safety of our residents is our utmost priority. These incidents are clearly unacceptable and we are taking immediate action to address it. We have distributed notices to every unit and throughout the building offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who has information leading to the identification and conviction of those responsible, and are looking into additional measures to reinforce safety at Roosevelt Landings.
