Stuy Town tenants fired up over ice rink

Residents of Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village are fuming again over what was supposed to be a welcome amenity. According to the New York Observer, tenants are up in arms over the return of the complex’s much-loathed ice rink. Stuy Town’s owners installed the rink last year, but tenants quickly grew disenchanted by the crowds, noise and fumes from the generators, and loudspeakers blasting music well into the evening. Tenants are required to pay to use the rink.

The complex’s management alerted tenants of the rink’s return with a message saying: “PCVST’s seasonal ice rink, operated by Ice Rink Events, will open this Saturday, November 17th at 11am. Residents are invited to enjoy free admission all day this Saturday.”

Last month, tenants of the 11,000-unit complex asked bondholders that own the property’s debt to bypass the company working out the loan and seek a speedy sale of the complex. Since the complex went into default in 2010, it has been controlled by CWCapital Asset Management. [NYO]Christopher Cameron
