We are two tenant associations who joined together to defend ourselves against a corporate real estate investment hydra that seeks to expel us from our homes in order to maximize their profits.

Security! (Swarm! Swarm!)

Construction workers regularly prop open our front door and leave it unattended (not just when they are transporting materials).  They do not know who is a bona fide tenant.  The tenants do not know who is a bona fide construction worker.  Any person may enter our building and wander without questions.  Meanwhile, we have the added burden of realtors trying to piggyback in on legitimate residents.  They are given no contact information for the super, they just wait until a tenant (who either doesn't know better or is too timid to challenge them) walks in.

What is so ridiculous (and living under Fortune East we've all gotten a healthy dose of ridiculous) is that while we had to submit to our GI photo IDs being SCANNED into their "system", so that our comings and goings are electronically monitored, construction workers, realtors, and just about anybody else have free access to come and go as they please!
