Is it safe to assume that each building will have enough storage units for each resident or first come first serve?
Definitely first come first serve (and waitlist). I don’t think any building ever earmarks so much space for storage that everyone could have one if they wanted. My last home (new construction in LIC) has tons of storage, and never filled them all. And it has 700 apartments. But there isn’t 700 storage units.

Sponsor attorney said our apartment should be ready my 10/17. How long does it usually take from that point to closing date? We're cutting pretty close to our due date :(

i bought a sponsor apartment - in another building, obviously - back in 2002. it took about six or seven weeks. not sure if that's a good baseline or not, but it's my experience.

From the date of our estimated completion to the actual date of completion was about two weeks. We closed three weeks after that. So, I would say 4-5 weeks from your 10/17 estimate.

My apartment had multiple delays and I didn't close/move in until 5 months after the date I was given. My guess is that they've gotten better at estimating since then (I was one of the earlier purchasers so maybe they've stopped promising dates they know they can't deliver).

Does anyone know if the work stoppage is over? There was loud music blasting from the apartment below mine last week and I know no one has moved in so I thought it might be workers (and I've seen more dusty footprints around).

Not sure if it’s been lifted or not, but they’re definitely back to working. And they’re going to start on the exterior common areas. So I would have to assume it’s been lifted.

We closed a month after the date when the apt was ready for appraisal.

Hi, everyone.

As a fairly new resident of Washington Plaza with a two-and-a-half-year-old, I was wondering if children make the rounds within the complex for trick-or-treating. It'll be our first Halloween here, and we wanted to know if residents are open to having kids come around. If not, where do the children of the neighborhood go? Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I think a lot of kids do their trick or treating along 37th Ave during the Halloween parade. Here's a short video that shows how it works. http://www.ny1.com/nyc/queens/news/2015/11/1/kids-flaunt-colorful-costumes-at-jackson-heights-halloween-parade.html

Here's the info about the 2017 parade. http://www.jhbg.org/category/arts-culture-programs/halloween-parade-arts-culture-programs

re: Halloween - there are usually a few kids who go through the buildings; I probably get 2 or 3 each year. My new building has more children so I'm hoping to see a few more kiddies in costumes this year.

Hello Washington Plaza owners,

Hope all is well. I have a question. We received a Depart of Finance An Taxation Star credit application but it's asking me for the lot and building number. Does anyone know what that is for WP?

Thanks!

Maybe someone will have a better answer, but you can look up the block and lot number on ACRIS. http://a836-acris.nyc.gov/cp/lookup/index
