Doorman Strike Would Not Be ‘End of the World’ ... for the Time Being, at Least


“If there is a positive thing to be pulled out of this, it’s that it is an opportunity to get to know your neighbors … and to come together to combat a little bit of adversity, because this is not the end of the world, though it may appear that way if the strike goes on.” —Mary Ann Rothman, executive director of the Council of New York Cooperatives and Condominiums, on the possibly imminent doorman strike. The strike of 30,000 doormen, superintendents, and elevator operators would begin Wednesday at 12:01 a.m.. [NYT]
