Keeping tabs: The results of BrickUnderground's holiday tipping poll so far
By V. L. Hendrickson |December 16, 2011 - 7:53AM
As we settle
into the last week before the holidays, there are two types of people: those
who’ve tipped the building staff and those who haven’t. At BrickUnderground we’ve
been monitoring our poll closely to see how much New Yorkers are tipping this
With about 900 votes so far, one thing is certain: As a general rule, it's cheaper to rent in a doorman building this time of year than it is to own.
Among owners who've taken the poll, 64% say they're giving more than $500 to the staff, including 26% who say they're doling out more than $1,000. On the rental side, just 40% are giving more than $500, with a mere 12% handing out more than $1,000.
If you still haven't slipped that envelope to the super, don't worry, there's still time. Even though they may say they like the money early in the month, no one's going to turn your generosity down. And let us know how much you gave!
