About Your Tenants Association
The Tenants Association was founded in the fall of 1971 as the Stuyvesant Town Tenants Association for the purpose of “promoting the unity of the tenants….and to initiate the programs and collective action which will inure to the benefit of the tenants and their families.”
The forming of the Association was prompted when Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller pushed a package of bills through the New York State Legislature, commonly referred to as “Vacancy Decontrol”. The Legislation enacted full vacancy decontrol for all rent controlled and rent stabilized housing in the state, effective June 30, 1971.
Full vacancy decontrol was repealed in 1974 when the Legislature and Governor Malcolm Wilson enacted the Emergency Tenants Protection Act.
In 1993 the name was officially changed to the Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village Tenants Association.
