Dear Miss Heather,
Love your blog. Is there anyway you would could reblog my blog about my apartment, 110 Green Street. I’d like to inform others not to live here and just how crappy the management is here.viridianbrooklyn.tumblr.comIf not, no hard feelings. Thanks and keep up the good work.
As it would happen, I myself have had the pleasure of receiving a photo of the above-depicted bit of gastronomic distress.
Here it is. The taker of this photograph opines:
Here’s one for your blog. This tasty display of canine explosive diarrhea was discovered in the “lounge” of the Viridian. I’m guessing by the presence of the “Caution!” sign that the dog’s owner has no plans to clean it up. But that’s just the kind of considerate behavior that I’ve come to expect from my neighbors.
Here’s another pair of photos this individual has see fit to send yours truly. Along with commentary.
Check it out… This is the hallway window on my floor. It is hanging out of the wall. (See next picture)
This shows the separation between the window and the wall. The area showing the view across the street is completely open to the outside.
It should be noted this person also informed me that following the fireworks/beer tossing incident on July 4th (which resulted in a police helicopter buzzing the area and generally scaring the bejezzus out of folks), the management of this building issued a memo informing tenants of the rules regarding use of the roof (as seen at the beginning of this post) and that surveillance cameras were installed so as to catch anyone using it without permission. These were promptly rendered non-functional.
Yes sir, it would appear the Viridian has some rather serious problems. Those of you wishing to have a staycation, have the odd $137.00 to burn and wish to see this shit show firsthand might be interested to know a resident of the Viridian is renting her penthouse apartment via airbnb. Otherwise I recommend checking out “G’s” documentation of the train wreck that is 110 Green Street”. It’s something else.*
UPDATE, August 12,2012: There appears to two websites dedicated to 110 Green Street. Behold, Viridian Gripes! I for one found the latest poll rather illuminating.
*Not to suggest I am surprised that the “quality” of construction at this luxury building has become an issue.
