“The Best a Tenant Can Get?”
Tenants in the 20-story building trapped in the elevator on the top floor. (Thanks to a rescue by the FDNY, those tenants are safe, for the moment.)
Door sensors on Elevator Number 2 at the 188-04, 13-story building failing and almost injuring a tenant. When called to his attention, the general manager responds, “Oh yeah, I was just thinking about that. I’ll look into that.“
Letter sent to General Manager asking action on garbage, construction workers working at inappropriate times, and some laundry room issues. General Manager responds “I’ll be in touch next week…enjoy the holiday weekend” and that was the Memorial Day weekend, not the Fourth of July weekend. No contact made since then.

Complaints about a growing pile of wood debris that is an eyesore, seemingly illegal in its extent, and killing vegetation adjacent to the 6436 and 6452 186th Lane buildings go unanswered. Five years ago, the General Manager was proud to tell local politicos that he cleaned up a smaller wood debris pile. So far, no action for many months.
Tenants’ concerns about the long-standing problems of the degradation of certain common areas and laundry room renovations that remain incomplete after months go unaddressed.
Meanwhile, the General Manager has made sure that pretty flowers and plantings appear by the management office and in areas most visible to those passing through Fresh Meadows.
Is this the best that our owner, Cammeby’s International Group, which manages over $13 billion in real estate assets, can do? And this is the same Cammeby’s that benefited from a $500-million, Fannie Mae refinancing in September 2019. One would think that Cammeby’s would want to better preserve its investment, wouldn’t one?
