The basement/first floor rear apartment in our co-op has a retaining wall around a cement patio area that is for the exclusive use of the owner of that unit. He has just painted some "artwork" on what has always been a white retaining wall. To the shareholder in the unit above hers, and who overlooks this yard, this huge eye pained toward the top of the wall it is not art, but tacky graffiti. Can the Board dictate what the owner does to this wall. Same goes for the garden, which has unsecured trellises falling over sideways. Former owners always took great care of this area. How can we insure this does not turn into Grey Gardens? Or can't we.
