: If mail is delivered in bulk to the superintendent, is he or
: building management obligated to distribute it to the apt's in building?

My understanding (I think this is in the Housing Maintenance Code on the
web site) is that an owner must either provide individual secure mailboxes
OR have his staff distribute the mail to the tenants.

: Assume that this internal service exists.
: Assume this internal service is temporarily discontinued.
: Protest from tenants causes this service to be reinstated however.
: Are new tenants who moved in to the building during the no-delivery
: time frame, entitled to that internal mail delivery just as the other
: tenants who were there before the no-delivery phase?

Yes, it's not a base-date thing like a DHCR service. This isn't
even a rent stab or rent control issue. All tenants must have
mail delivery.

Personally, I wouldn't trust most supers; they can "withhold" or
"lose" mail and also know who is sending things to you -- which
should be non of their business, especially as owners might use
that knowledge against you in other disputes.
