Doorman Switcheroo at London Terrace

Rose Associates are getting more and more sneaky in their quest to rid London Terrace of rent stabilized tenants and illegal sublets. The newest ploy is taking all the doormen from the 24th Street side and putting them on the 23rd Street side and vice versa. The reason, ostensibly, is security; they want tenants' building ID to be checked upon entering the building. The reason, really, is so that they can find out who is in an illegal sublet. I guess they don't figure that some tenants might just walk around the corner to the other side and enter where there is a doorman who knows them. Are they also not taking into account that when the weather is bad (hot, raining, cold) most people walk inside the building as much as they can, often exiting or entering on the opposite side of the building from where they live, thus getting to know all the doormen? I guess not.

Ingrid, do you really think that's the reason they change them? I've been living here 12 years, and during that time, they've ALWAYS rotated the doormen.

One good thing about it is: I STILL don't know who everyone is, and the building is so BIG, so a couple of years ago I stopped tipping at Christmastime. -- Phyl
