Local Law 152 Update
As reported at the October 6 shareholders’
meeting and in last month’s Cryder
Point Courier, reparations for the 21
Building cooking shutdown involve
a very lengthy process. At that time
(which now seems like eons ago), the
estimate was that the work would be
completed by the end of the year, so
the long duration is not new news.
However, the process has been
further stalled by a stop-work order
imposed by the DOB. A Building Link
notification of this was sent out as soon
as the order was received. We do not
know who placed the call or the intention
of the person who did it. Even if it was meant
to help speed things up, a call to the DOB or
other city agencies adds to delays since these entities
have their own internal politics and timelines which
further complicate matters. Residents who have questions
should first contact Management.
Regardless of the stop-work order, we have not been
idle. We have been soliciting additional bids from contractors
to ensure we will be having quality work done
at a fair price. At press time, we do not have all of the
proposals yet; as soon as we do, we will be pulling the
numbers together and conducting side-by-side comparisons.
Accordingly, we are seeking a venue to hold an
in-person shareholders’ meeting as soon as possible to
present all the particulars to shareholders. This situation
is complicated by the fact that the Community
Room remains closed. The damage in the room from
Hurricane Ida cannot be addressed yet as the insurance
adjuster is experiencing a backlog of claims (and
the room might be too small for this meeting anyway).
Our usual offsite locations (the Bay Terrace Jewish
Center; local grammar school) are not renting space
at this time as they are undergoing their own repairs,
so we are looking for an alternative site as quickly as
We will update residents as we receive more information.
Thanks to everyone for your continued patience.
Local Law 11 Inspections
These inspections began on October 27 and, overall,
have been proceeding smoothly. Thanks to everyone
for clearing their balconies so thoroughly and quickly.
We anticipate this project to be completed on
time. As of now, we do not expect any unwelcome
surprises and will advise residents
of the final disposition as soon
as we have it.

There was a great turnout for this year’s Halloween

words, and I hope you enjoy the coverage on

A Fond Farewell
RICK AND ESTHER AT ONE OF CRYDER
POINT’S EPIC POOL PARTIES
We rarely (if ever) get a
chance to say “Bon Voyage”
to longstanding residents who
move away, but it’s nice when
Rick Buser and his wife, Esther
Lugo, are heading off to
Florida soon and I have to say,
it seems like they have mixed
emotions. “We will surely miss
everyone at Cryder Point,”
Esther said, somewhat wistfully. “All the friends we’ve
made, the staff and, of course, great memories during
these 18 years living here.” Esther wanted to make sure
we’ll be in their thoughts. “All our best wishes to everyone
else at Cryder Point,” she added.
And all our best wishes to you, Rick and Esther. At
least you’ll be in the same time zone, so don’t be strangers!
