My name is Arthur Shanker, a part-time resident at 4000 Island Boulevard. Retired from the practice of law (for health reasons), I began this blog to share my experiences in the building and to urge full and frank disclosure of information I felt necessary to make sound decisions as an owner on building issues.

Having taken a hiatus from writing in 2010, I have returned to the blogging about the upcoming annual meeting at the request of many owners who wanted me to share my current views and observations.
