Packages 

Anybody remember when you could actually get packages delivered at the Asbury?

DHL tried to deliver a package to me, apparently last Friday. Twice. But it required a signature.

I didn't get the package, nor did I receive any notice that a delivery was attempted. Where did the notice go? I don't know. I just spent a half-hour figuring out what happened and trying to get a re-delivery worked out. Who knows how much more time I'll have to put in on this quest.

I remember back when the management of the Asbury did not try to make it HARDER to live at the Asbury.

Of course, that was back when they filled vacancies primarily with tenant referrals (i.e., good word of mouth) rather than with government money. Why should HUD give a shit how easy it is to get a package at the Asbury?

And if HUD doesn't care, why should the John Stewart Company?

I miss capitalism.

Tragedy 

Today I have found out that the large ornate mirror that was the centerpiece of the lobby has been sold to a removals company for $200. This is tragic! What logic could be behind it I have no idea. There is no way to replace such a grand item in that lobby, No one would go to the trouble these days. I hear that the old piano is to go too. This of course is in real bad shape and I can come closer to understanding it's removal but overall I am am just made sad by it all. I of course dreamed the lobby would be restored. This is not what this great old building deserves after waiting dormant all these years.

Who owns the Asbury? 

From the comments on the entry below:
Has anyone complained to the Los Angeles Housing Partnership regarding how John Stewart Company has been dealing with our building issues? LAHP are the actual owners of the building and have control over the John Stewart Company.

Is this true? I have to confess, I haven't been keeping up with Asbury issues (I guess I'm fortunate not to have many). But if the actual owners are LAHP, that's pretty interesting. Anyone have confirmation on this?

Asbury Office No Longer Signs for Packages 

As of a week ago, the Asbury office no longer signs for packages (UPS, Fed Ex, anything needing a signature). I do not know whether they will continue to accept and hold packages sent via regular mail which are simply too big to fit in the boxes. Presumably the details will be addressed in a forthcoming memo.

Apparently some packages were recently lost after the office staff signed for them. This new policy is intended to address that problem.

Opinions?

Rat 

There's a rat trying to gnaw its way into my apartment.

Not kidding.

I bang on the wall and floor and it stops for awhile, then starts again.

Call Box 

I lost the memo. Actually, I gave the memo away with the info on it.

What's the number we are supposed to press to let someone in?

Help.
