I was checkin my mail when I heard voices coming down the stairs. It was a Broker with her clients, a man and a woman. They paused in the entry hall and I must admit shamefully that I was lingering at my mailbox to eavesdrop.... and I am glad I did! The clients asked the broker "so WE are the only ones who will have access to the roof?"
The broker responded "Ummmmm...... yes you will be the only tenants that can go on the roof." There is actually a roof terrace up there for another apartment. So I gather that they did not get a look at the roof.
The female client asked with a sense of disbelief, "Are you SURE its OK to have BBQs on the roof".
"Ahhhhh..... Yes its OK as long as you follow the normal safety protocol"
I had to pipe in my 2 cents here. "Its against the law to have a BBQ on the roof or terrace of any NYC building. You can't even store a BBQ on a roof or terrace. Take a look at the FDNY website. Have you never heard of the Chicago Fire or the London Fire? You should be ashamed of yourself telling such lies, what Real Estate company do you work for? You should be reported!"
This got me such a look of hatred from the Broker, you know the ole saying if looks could kill, I wouldn't be writing this. She hustled her clients outta there toot sweet.
