Hi Viridian Residents,

No doubt you’re here because you received a card under your door. Unfortunately, gripes have already started filling our inbox. So, in the meantime, we thought we’d explain a little more about what we’re trying to achieve and how this site will work.

Our intention is to provide an open forum and put the issues that residents of the Viridian Apartments in Greenpoint, Brooklyn have had on public record. The desired result is that by doing so, the management will realize that they must listen to complaints thoroughly and act with due diligence. Since complaints will be a matter of public record, prospective tenants will be well armed to decide whether or not they want to become residents and if they do, the issues they may be faced with.

How this site works

You may email your gripes to us at viridiangripes@gmail.com. REST ASSURED THAT WE WILL NOT PUBLICALLY PRINT YOUR NAME OR APARTMENT NUMBER. Instead, if your gripe is new, we will post it here with a comments thread allowing you to respond. Please do not use your real name when responding to comments – we would like gripes to remain as anonymous as possible.

If your gripe has already been established, we will point you to a previous thread or try to accommodate it.

We understand that there will situations with more than one gripe. In this case, we’ll most likely separate the gripe into parts to give it it’s due course of action.

The most important issue here is that we must show the management that they HAVE to begin to address the gripes, otherwise residents will leave in droves – and there will be nobody to take our place. We are highly paying customers and we must get what we deserve. We love living in an apartment building full of amenities, in an area that we love – we deserve to do so without gripes.

    Why can’t tenants put recyclables in their proper containers? How hard is it?! Also be considerate of your neighbors. Don’t make a mess or fill up the bins on Friday evening since they won’t be emptied until Sunday morning.

    A tenant on my floor has his 10 year old son throw their paper, plastic, metal all in the same bin. To boot, this runs barefoot from his apt to the Garbage room so it sounds like someone stomping.

    • I’m not sure that most are aware that the bins aren’t empty on the weekend as there is cleaning activitiy then.

      More importantly, I think it’s important for the management to mark the recycling bins more clearly. How are yours marked?

        Each bin has a sign with BIG LETTERS stating one is for paper and the other for plastic, metal, glass, milk/juice cartons and non-food items yet, someone threw out watermelon rinds in it last summer…unbelievable.

        Styrofoam is non-recyclable, yet it’s still being thrown in there.

      Have you tried to talk to the tenant?

        No but I’ve told Simon who said, “why do you care?” From that point on, I realized complaining was falling on deaf ears. He’s the wrong person for this building.

    I am not sure that the management can be held responsible for other peoples actions. Perhaps you can should put a sign up nicely asking people to sort their recycling and to be respectful of their neighbors?
