Thoughts on Terrace View?

(1/3) > >>

tarobubbletea:
My partner and I are thinking of putting an offer in on an apartment at Terrace View. People seemed fairly friendly, but after doing a little research, found some troubling comments on this board about the former board president (accusations of discrimination), as well as about the larger community in the building. Does anyone have any insight?

In addition to those comments, I'm worried about an overly intrusive board -- we are pretty quiet, don't host a lot of parties (and obviously wouldn't host any till after COVID, anyway), and don't plan on making a lot of renovations to the space, if that makes any difference. We're just new to co-ops and wondering if there's anything we should be aware of. Thanks in advance!

Thinking of Terrace View makes me ill. What do you want to know? How they hounded a pregnant woman out of the building? How they sued a gay couple for putting up moulding around a closet? How a woman said she was attacked ( the r word) and the president of the co-op board laughed at her? How they hounded at least two other gay couples out of the building? The talkative man they threw out of the building? How they threatened to sue me because I waited for a taxi in the lobby? It goes on and on.

The sister of that same president of the co-op sued the building after she fell and made believe she did not know her sister.

This is all very troubling... do you have more details about when these events all happened? How were the gay couples driven out of the building?

My knowledge of Terrace View is for a specific period around 2010. Since there were so many incidents at that time, there must be many more at other times.

They got rid of gays by lawsuits (for putting up moulding), by not allowing renovations, by putting up surveillance cameras outside one couple's apartment and by harassment by neighbors.

The building has been sued by some of the couples in various venues.

Yes, these things happened under the former president, but it was with the knowledge and encouragement of the residents.
