Heading to Stuy Town Today? Bring Purell

Today will certainly be an interesting one in the recent history of Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper Village, because today is the day when the people take the power back! Or something. Yep, at 5pm "Hands Across Stuy Town" will kick off, and 7,000 people are expected to take part in the gigantoid affordable housing rally. For new Stuy Town/PCV owners Tishman-Speyer, it looks like you can only have so many broker parties, rebrandings, rent hikes and private detectives before tenants start getting suspicious. Ever since the great Lower East Side cocktease of 2005, we've been waiting for a good human chain, so don't let us down, Stuy T.
