This in from an Anonymous source & please don’t shoot the messenger I.E. – Seriously, I’m just the moderator of this blog I did not post this.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "4th of July - 2008":

last night, somebody (i'm assuming either a tenent or their guest) decided it would be fun to trash the bedford ave stairwell). they took a hockey stick to the Chabad's paintings and destroyed the verb cafe's food delivery.

As a result of this latest act of vandalism (one of many in recent months. i.e. graffiti in the halls, trash on the roof and stairwell, etc.) I will be calling the cops if too many random people (say more than 100) end up on the roof on July 4)

Hangin on the roof Saturday, June 28th. Cool?

Hello there peeps.
I'm Jeremy on the second floor. I'm moving to Los Angeles on Sunday (please dont make fun of me. my friends have been brutal!). I was planning on having a get together on the roof with friends and family this saturday at 6pm. At 9 we'll be heading over to Spike Hill to see my band and hang over there for the rest of the night. Just wanted to make sure i'm not stepping on any toes. You are all welcome to come up and grab a PBR and say whatup. If it rains, well. Nevermind!
Many thank you's.
PS - The internet never works.
PPS - I have lived here over a year and ALWAYS clean up after my parties.
PPPS - SOOO sad i'm missing July 4th. Last years party was Epic. But New Orleans should be cool right?

Internet Problems In the Building?

hey is it just us or does the internet flake out a lot for other people in the building?

we did a test and it looks like we're all on the same connection. when i plug my computer directly into the wall i can see other peoples iTunes.

was hoping you could put up a post about this and see who else is having problems.

4th of July - 2008

I know there was a crazy party last year but was it or is it organized? They had kind of a doorman but I am in the dark about the machinations of that event.

Shooting for 6:30 ---

Tonight is probably going to be really hot again followed by severe thunders storms. That’s the prediction. Thus I am planning to go on the roof Wednesday night around 8:00 PM with industrial strength garbage bags and a six pack and finish cleaning up the roof. If anyone is interested in helping or if anyone has a better idea let me know. If more people are interested in helping on Wednesday night I will get a case of Corona – so let me know. Thanks.

Dear Tenants of 132 N. 5th Street,

Dear Tenants of 132 N. 5th Street,
The blog moderator was nice enough to let us pass this on to the readers of this site. This is to serve as both an apology, and to hopefully clear clear some confusion from this past weekend. We live on the 2nd floor and had been planning a little get together for this past weekend. Obviously, the weather was great, and we did not expect to have the roof all to ourselves. The note shown in the previous post was ours. We occupied the far end (south side) of the roof for a good part of the night. Closer to the door, was another party, the one associated with the greater bulk of the mess. When our food was consumed, beer drank, and our guests left (all by 1:00 or 2:00), we did our best to clean up our section (collected whatever bottles were there at that point) amidst the continued partying/ hanging out that was going on in that area (a lot of which were newcomers). Sometime between 11 and noon the next morning, we went up to round up whatever bottles had accumulated or had been left in our area, collect bottle caps, dispose of any food we missed, lug the bags down, etc. So, there was a bit of mess come morning, some of which was ours, some of which wasn't, but it was handled in a relatively timely manner (probably should have set our alarms earlier, so sorry to any early wakers).

The streamers, and piles of cans and bottles, and tables covered in garbage, and whatever else was left on the north end was not our doing. Many of the people we know in the building were aware that we were going to be up there, so I'd rather not have everyone think that we were on that side of the roof. Unfortunately, living in a building with so many people, there's no way to aim all fault at a certain room or group. I'm sure aside from ours and the other gathering, there were plenty of other people that made their way up there to hang out, drink beers and further the mess. I'm not justifying leaving any mess at all. Just want to apologize for any mess that we did leave, but disassociate ourselves from what wasn't ours.

I did talk to Moses while I was up there the following morning. Aside from cleaning, I think he's equally concerned with tenants telling Landmark ahead of time that they will be holding something. Sorry for the lengthiness of this message but thanks for reading all the way through.

Well if the roof gets shut down you can thank who ever had the party last weekend. I talked to Moses yesterday and he was upset about the new garbage on the wall next to the chabad house and the noise and mess on the roof. He was saying he is going to shut the roof down.

Hopefully this isn't true...

Notes on the Weekend:

I just wanted to get a new post up - just to get a new post up. Also – I can put a section on the blog main page where people can let other people in the building know that they are looking for roommates etc. Just let me know by saying "please put this up in your comment area" or email the information you want posted to and I will put it up. I will try to find a way to automate the process. Also I am not 100% sure if we nailed down if and when we want a building meet & greet. Is there anyone willing to own that one?
