101 Clark Street Volunteer Gardening Group
We hope that you are enjoying the "gardens" at the entranceway to 101 and the newly beautified 3rd floor deck.
Thanks to the cooperators and staff members who have been instrumental in this project. Our gratitude and thanks to Jim Murray, of 10 Clinton Street, who has been unselfish and generous with his time, knowledge, advice, encouragement and elbow grease; we could not have done this without him. Members of the Volunteer Garden Group have donated energy, money and floral plants, as have cooperators. Our Manager, Luis Pineda and his staff, Paul Tornabene and the maintenance staff, Ron, Caesar and many others have been especially supportive and cooperative.
We would like to add to the flowers and small bushes that have already been planted and encourage cooperators to contribute autumn plants, such as chrysanthemums. Please mark them with your name and apartment number and leave them with the Security Guard----we will do the rest. Thank you.

A good deed "Mass Transit" story: May 8th, 2002
Boy, what a Birthday I had today. I decided this morning that I was going to St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan to light a candle for my Birthday, so long and behold I hop on the uptown #4 Express train and connect to the uptown #6 local at 42nd St. I get on the #6 Local and there is a duffle bag directly under my seat. So now I am thinking that someone had left, gotten off the train and forgot their bag. I picked up the bag and got off the next stop, which is my stop (51st.). Never thinking that it may have contained a bomb. Inside the bag were blueprint, floor plans for several apartments including an apt in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, also the gentleman's stock portfolio worth over one Million dollars, along with an expensive Olympus camera.
The gentleman who forgot it worked as a top consulting engineer for a firm on 42nd St. I continued to St. Patrick's for the 12 noon mass. I returned home and decided to call him. The guy was so happy that I found his belongings. He said that he never thought his things would be returned. He said that he would send over his assistant by car service to pick up the bag this evening. I mentioned to him that I was on my way to St. Patrick's to light a candle for my Birthday and that I took 3 pictures of the church while I had the camera. He went hysterical laughing. I had to try out the camera since I was purchasing one in a couple of days.
The end of the story was that his assistant came by around 6:30pm, picked up the bag and handed me an envelope with my name on it. I decided since I was rushing to go out to dinner with friends in Manhattan, that I would open the envelope at the restaurant. I opened the envelope and inside was 5 twenty dollar bills.
Now I can put this money toward that new camera I promised myself.
Now in a test and trial stage, this Website can eventually offer cooperators many possible resources, including:
Putting in maintenance requests by email
Communication with management by email
Support for the homebound
Discussion forums about building, cooperator and community issues
The lobby bulletin boards online
Forms you can fill out online
Archive of Board & committee meeting minutes, keyword searchable
Maps and directions you can send your visitors
The CT Handbook, readily updateable
Apartment sales info ■Downloadable apartment floor plans
Our Cadman Views newsletter online
History and photo archive of our buildings
Personal and social activities of our neighbors & the CTA
Site search engine and one-click table of contents ■Accessibility from any online computer in the world
This project is in its early stages; however we are delighted to get your questions, contributions, comments or concerns. Email email@example.com
Thanks to all who responded to the invitation to comment on cadmantowers.net.
We got our email forwarding a little backwards and apologize for the delay in responding but here are a few responsesů

No, but if you'd like to start one, give me a call: Bob Rowen 834-1414. And anyone else...
firstname.lastname@example.org wrote " Hello Webmaster! Nice job! Great photo of the building - without the scaffolding! How about a cooperators forum - ideas which work, vendors who are reliable, workmen who are not, tips on keeping the apartment hot/cold.... ways to manage during the facade work...Whatever...Let's see what happens with the website. Good luck, and thanks forvolunteering!. "
email@example.com wrote, "Just checked out the Cadman site. Your ideas are great. It will be really good looking when complete. What are the next steps to make cooperators more aware of the site and get their input?"
Fermaint@aol.com wrote "just wanted to send a note and say how great it will be to have a web page."
CadmanResident@aol.com brought up a serious response to one of our thoughts: "To whom it may concern: This is only a suggestion. Click onto the "Parkchester" website. As you can see, one of the icons reads "Contact us". Parkchester has decided not to have email forwarded to their office. Cadman Towers can have residents fill out a complaint form on the computer and place it in a box which can be located in the lobby of 101 Clark St. and 10 Clinton St. Trust me, you don't want to have 100 or more emails to tend too. This is suggestion that you may want to consider."
Just the kind of input we need. Join the committee!
