Any word on when we will be getting reimbursed for our co-op abatement for those that purchased in the year of 2016? Communication with mgmt can be slow, so perhaps someone else has news or update?

Also here's a photo of the view that some of the apartments have. Not bad 8)

You mean in Washington Plaza? I can't figure out where that view would be from. I can't place that modern building on the left at all, and while the buildings straight ahead seem familiar, I don't think they're across the street from Washington Plaza.

The modern building is Regal Heights Rehab and the building in the foreground is at 35th between 73rd and 72nd.

Oh! Thanks, Shelby2. Now I know why the two buildings looked familiar—they're on 35th between 72nd and 73rd. My brain was trying to place them on 73rd.   ::)

Hello residents of Washington Plaza! My partner and I are excited to be joining the coop. We chose this building in part because of the community it promises. In the past few months, we have charted the conversation on this thread as it has evolved since 29 March 2016, noting the range of personalities as well as the many questions and responses. Indeed, we are optimistic about the future of the cooperative because of the commitment and engagement of the people who call it home.

I am writing now in the event that others have questions about the purchasing process. I am happy to share my experience and insights. Likewise, if there is a closed forum for residents, I would greatly appreciate an invitation given that my questions and wonderings will likely change as a resident and coop member. I am looking forward to a new chapter, especially as Washington Plaza moves closer to self-governance. Thank you!

Hi, Jh2019. I'm a renter at Washington Plaza, so I'm not involved as a coop member. But our issues and concerns do overlap quite a bit. I hope you enjoy living here!

A new low in the laundry room:

Someone (for descriptive purposes only: a small, old, feeble, asian woman, I have nothing against small people, or feeble people, or asian people..  some of my best friends are feeble people.) took my wet laundry out of the dryer, while it was running and stole the time. Then she (for descriptive purposes only, I am identifying them as a non-male) came into the room, said nothing and took her stuff. I should have taken her picture.

So you were there to witness her taking out the stuff, said nothing and did nothing? And then you waited around until she was done and saw her take out her stuff and again said nothing and did nothing?

And then you decided to post about it on an anonymous internet message board about it?

There must be a gap in your rationale that I'm missing.

I did not see her take the things out of the dryer. When I went downstairs I saw my wet things in the basket and returned them to the dryer, after removing her's.

She came down and took her things while removing the basket from the laundry room. She never looked at me. She seemed fragile and I saw no reason to confront her. She was a typical arrogant person who I did not want to cause to have a heart attack.

I posted this because I am annoyed.

So it was an assumption that she took your stuff out while you had time left and for all we know you're the asshole who took someone else's stuff while the dryer was running.

Maybe you would rather have more discussion on Laly's and The Queensboro.

Speaking of Laly's, has anyone had the new jalapeno poppers yet?  Highly recommend.
