On March 31, 2021 Governor Cuomo signed S.854-A/A.1248-A which legalized adult use marijuana. This relaxation of law is welcome to many; however, it also reminds us of our need to be considerate of others, particularly when living in an apartment house with close neighbors. As such we remind you that:
•Smoking (of anything) is prohibited in ALL public areas of the building;
•Smoke can easily travel from your apartment to your neighbors;
•The smell of smoke can be both annoying and a health risk to others;
•Marijuana smoke in particular is very strong and lingers and it’s likely that your neighbors don’t want the smell permeating the building and their apartments.
Therefore, in light of the above we ask tenants to please be considerate of your neighbors. If you are going to smoke (anything), we ask that you try to do so out and away from the building. If you insist on smoking in your apartment please prevent smoke and smells from escaping (open windows, use fans, vape, etc). Finally, as stated, you may not smoke in any common areas of the building. Creating a smoking nuisance for your neighbors is both inconsiderate and a violation of your lease.
We are committed to doing whatever we can to maintaining your building, as a safe, quiet and enjoyable place to live, we cannot do it without everyone’s help.
