Tenants beware of Liberty Ventures/Keystone Management!
Former Tenant
Pros:
- Location - Neighbors - Proximity to transit
Cons:
- Keystone Management/Liberty Ventures is the worst I've ever seen. Daniel Ohebshalom and Robin Ignico are some of the most neglectful managing agents ever. They should have no control over anyone's housing situation. - Management's services are nonexistent despite the expensive rent.
Advice to owner:
Give up your buildings!

We Have a Literal Slum Lord as Management - Daniel Ohebshalom
Former Tenant
Pros:
Absolutely nothing. Like I literally cannot think of one thing. Actually, there's a mirror in the lobby so I can see clearly see the face of disappointment I make on a daily basis when I come home and can remind myself never to make a mistake like this again.
Cons:
1. Management is a slumlord. They will literally scream and curse at you on the phone when you ask for repairs. Robin Ignico, a representative for the landlord has told several tenants to "shut up" and called them slurs. 2. There is no super. Multiple ceilings have collapsed. Poop water everywhere. It took almost 4 days to fix. No NYC location; management is based in California. The apartment door broke on a tenant and the guy management sent to fix it forced the tenant to go to an ATM and give him $375 in cash. Several tenants were without heat and hot water with no emergency number to call. Several fake super numbers have been posted. 3. Filthy. Floors covered in dirt. Garbage overflowing. Cigarettes, urine, and FECES in the vestibule. Dead roaches. Mice inside apartments. 4. No lock on the outside door. Broke months ago and they never fixed it. 5. Mailboxes were vandalized. Never fixed. Been without mail for months. 6. Elevator is not up to code and breaks often. People were carrying their laundry up 6 flights of stairs. 7. Walls are crumbling and unpainted. Holes in the floor. 8. People were breaking into the building to do drugs. No security of any kind. A tenant had valuables stolen from their apartment. Police were coming to the building every day. 9. They appear to be renting rent-regulated apartments at market value.
Advice to owner:
Grow a conscience. Acknowledge that you are intentionally hurting vulnerable people. That is wrong.

Notorious Slumlord Daniel Ohebshalom
Former Tenant
Pros:
I like our tenant association as we are fighting back against the landlord's and management's neglect of the building and tenants.
Cons:
Hiding behind a litany of LLCs like Keystone Management, Highpoint Associates, Liberty Ventures, and Belmont Ventures, tenants believe the purported landlord and his property manager Robin Ignico have engaged in intentional neglect and harassment, including towards residents who speak up about the obscene and dangerous conditions in their homes. Common sights at the 14th Street building (and others in the landlord’s portfolio) include: trash piled high, a broken-down elevator and intercom system, smashed mailboxes and stolen mail, graffiti across the walls, human feces, drug paraphernalia, ceiling collapses, broken doors to empty units, and more. Adding to the crumbling building infrastructure, unmaintained entryways have also created the difficult situation of unwanted intruders regularly breaching doors and windows to use common areas and abandoned apartments, often engaging in unaccountable and dangerous behavior like vandalism, littering, and theft of personal belongings. Tenants have been forced to creep through their own building with caution, unsure of who or what might be around the corner. Tenants’ best efforts to have this issue resolved by management, elected representatives, and even the local precinct have not been fundamentally successful—the latter advised tenants to simply navigate the hallways with mace in one hand, and a phone recording video in the other. Tenants maintain that the inherent problem in their building is not people looking for shelter during cold winter nights in New York, but rather management’s carelessly unmaintained security infrastructure that causes these unsafe conditions. Seeing this problem replicated across their landlord’s other buildings, tenants feel that the lack of a real response from their management company has even served as a silent endorsement of the danger and vandalism contributing to the deterioration of their home.
Advice to owner:
Stop being such a horrible person.
