Another Visit From the FDNY and Con Ed
The Fire Trucks were here in front of 120 and 118 East Fourth St yet again. They are almost becoming monthly visitors. Apparently there was the odor of gas. Someone rightly called in the FDNY. It was a simple glitch in a very old stove. A problem easily resolved with a call to the Super, that is if we had a Super. We do sort of have a Super, but he has 15 buildings to attend to for the landlord, Mr Kushner. I believe he lives in The Bronx or Staten Island, so emergency calls are out of the question. Its the new trend. One Super for 15 to 20 buildings, so now one must call in the FDNY and Con Ed to solve issues that would be routine with a Super on the premises. I wonder if the City Council is hip to this waste of tax payer money? If we had a Super living on site as in the past, most of these calls to the FDNY to perform the function of a Super would be unnecessary.
