Exactly. Some people love making excuses for themselves.

you can try and oust her from the board by running yourself. or you should just sell the unit - i assume your neighbor would love to approve your buyer since it would mean getting rid of you!

You love throwing that word around whenever you hear a different opinion. Again, my point is that you be shouldn't forced out of your apt. because of a neighbor. Just because a daycare does it, doesnt mean I want my kids out in the park during winter. Not practical to have kids outside every waking minute. A place to live is more than just to sleep in....it is a home, not a hotel. Being a parent for a young infant or toddler is tiresome, sometimes you don't want to go out every day.

I can't believe that people believe that young families should only live on the first floor or buy a house or move to the suburbs or whatever.
You sure realize that you were all a toddler once right?
You sure realize that this is age-ism right?
You sure realize that toddler-hood doesn't last more than 2-3 years right?
So should young families make a huge, long-term investment to a property that suits you, never mind that it may restrict our life for maybe 10 or 20 or who knows for how long?

To give some balance to the issue though, I have a toddler, I live in a co-op in Queens and have never heard anything from our downstairs neighbor. And it's not that we have perfect insulation, we do hear the ones above us.

I can deal with the cold just fine....I don't want my kids playing there for any extended period of time. And my kid is not in another state and wouldn't be going to your daycare.

It depends on your coop and who your neighbor really, something you don't know until you purchase the coop unfortunately. I found out about the thin walls 1 month after moving in. I would not go the coop route in hindsight....I would rent out a house and save for one if I couldn't afford a house at the time being.

Totally agree with your opinion. I thought about all the same factors as you a few years ago and decided to relocate to a single family detached house in Bayside which is sorta like the suburbs in the city. The variety of restaurants and bars is better than anywhere in queens except Astoria and its suburban once you walk 5-6 blocks away from the lirr. A home def shouldn't be just a box to sleep in. And I grew up in NYC as well and don't see the advantage of living like roaches in square boxes. All the unique good stuff that I used to do in NYC like the $3 movie theatre in midtown, the $5 per person pool in union square are long gone anyway and my kids will never experience the unique NYC that I remembered.

What part of LIVED to you not understand. That is PAST tense.
Sounds like you are just a cry baby. Part of the entitled generation. Your child will be worse of because of your entitlement.

You sound like a whole a lot of other stuff with your personal attacks that I'm not going to post. Whether you said live or lived doesn't make a difference, we are in NY....winters are rarely in the single digits, so why bring it up. Everyone has their personal preference of how to raise their child. Just because its different than how you feel does not make someone a crybaby, entitled or someone making excuses which is Pierres favorite word when someone disagrees with his or her viewpoint.

When all you can reply back are personal attacks, youre not worth my time to reply back with. I'll be the better person and leave this thread as is.
