12. Noise Policy

As a member of the StuyTown (formerly known as PCVST) community we ask that you be mindful of your living environment and the impact your day-to-day conduct has on your neighbors and our residential community. Since your home is part of a multiple dwelling community and noise travels easily from apartment to apartment, it is expected that you will do everything possible to diminish the transmission of sound and noise. Here are some noise dampening suggestions:
  • Carpet your apartment in accordance with the terms of your Lease. Your lease requires that rugs or carpeting must cover 80% of all floors at all times. Floor covering is not required in the kitchen or bathroom
  • Listen to movies and music at an acceptable level. Use headphones for late-night listening
  • Talk, entertain guests, play video games, or participate in other activities in ways that do not infringe on your neighbors’ right to quietly enjoy and utilize their apartment
  • Place all home entertainment equipment off the floor and away from attached or shared walls
  • Place thick padding under exercise equipment
  • Refrain from walking around in hard or high heel shoes
  • Be mindful and considerate of neighbors during traditionally quiet hours (late night and early morning)
It is recommended that you add these items to your pre-move-in “to do” list. Questions should be directed to the StuyTown Carpet Inspections Group (formerly known as the PCVST Carpet Inspections Group) at Report noise complaints to Public Safety at 212-598-5233. Founded complaints are addressed by Management through an aggressive notification and response process.

13. Things to Know

  • Door nameplates are normally installed within three weeks after your Lease starts. The mailbox directories are updated each month. Only the names of the Tenants of Record are listed.
  • Hot and cold water, heat, gas and electricity are included in your monthly rent.
  • Your intercom number will be provided by the New Tenant Liaison Team and can be found inside your key packet. It will be updated within two weeks of your moving in. Only the names of the Tenants of Record are listed.
  • To help maintain a pleasant living environment, 80% of all floors at all times must be covered with carpeting or area rugs. It is recommended that you add this item to your pre-move-in “to-do” list. Failure to comply with this requirement is a violation of your lease agreement. Please note that after your move-in, the Carpet Inspection Group will contact you to schedule a carpet inspection.
  • Brackets for shades, blinds, and curtain rods should be attached to the side and front of the steel casement frame that surrounds the window. These items should not be affixed to the window frame or the walls. A #6 gauge sheet metal screw should be used. This type of screw will fit the existing holes and will hold the brackets securely.
