Great Location But So Small It Was Hard To Exist
Former Tenant
Pros:
Doorman building with doormen that actually care, I was in a refinished apartment and generally quality appliances, the laundry space was always clean and large enough that there was minimal wait, I was on the G line and the one closet is huge, neighborhood is obviously unbeatable.
Cons:
I had roaches for a year and it was due to neighbors not having it under control, I eliminated all food and garbage from the apt and kept it steril-level clean, but roaches persisted. The building's response was to send someone every few weeks to spray but it did nothing. You're paying for the location because the studio unit (G line) was so small I really couldn't sustain living there for any extended period of time. Some of the neighbors (in the building and in the neighborhood) have been there since the invention of sliced bread so they're curmudgeonly, but I guess that's the UWS. Don't expect your full deposit back, they'll fight you tooth and nail on the SMALLEST things.

Decent UWS building
Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet, proximity to Central Park and subway, 24/hour front desk
Cons:
Extremely small studio for the price, no full sized fridge or oven (just two burners and a mini fridge), barely any counter space, have caught roaches several times, insane rent increases over the past 3 years (65%+)

Overpriced, old, roach infested but with great staff
Former Tenant
Pros:
The doormen and staff are really great! Love that it’s a dog friendly building! Convenient location, right by subway and park. If you are in a north facing apartment it’s very quiet
Cons:
Last year they tried to raise our rent 40%. We negotiated it down to 30%. They use high pressure tactics to get you to sign. There are cockroaches EVERYWHERE. We plug our sinks up every night, wipe down the sinks, do self extermination. We even keep our toaster in a 2 gallon zip lock bag so there’s no snacks for the roaches and they still come back! This used to be an old hotel that was converted into apartments so the kitchens are teenytiny. We don’t even have a kitchen drawer and have one kitchen cabinet! The fridge is old and tiny (I’m taller than it and I’m 5’ 3”), and the shelves are broken and are held up by super glue. Somehow management tries to argue this is a luxury building to justify the price. Bathrooms are old fixtures from the 80’s. Tiny sink with no storages. When it’s super cold out we get icicles on the inside of the bathroom window. There is lead in the paint.
Advice to owner:
Fix up this dump if you’re gonna charge high prices

Nice place for a temporary stay
Former Tenant
Pros:
Note: this is for Parc Cameron, 41 W 86th (the app defaults the address to 37 w 86th). This is a well-functioning building with 24-hour desk attendants and basic amenities like package notifications and trash/recycling. The building is clean, staff is friendly, and maintenance requests are handled very quickly. Units are small for the price, even in this neighborhood, but the location can’t be beat.
Cons:
This is a great temporary housing solution, especially if you get a good deal. However, they raise rents 25-50% each year and will not negotiate. The building has a number of rent-stabilized units grandfathered in from before Equity management bought the building. The rest of the tenants face exorbitant rent increases. So don’t plan to make this place a long term home.
Advice to owner:
Try to balance your profits with the needs of your tenants. And if you can’t, at least be transparent about what you do from the outset so potential tenants can make informed derisions. It’s devastating to get hit with increases like this.

Living under a corporation
Former Tenant
Pros:
It’s a clean building in a good area with good service from the great staff. The actual people working in the building are fantastic and very helpful
Cons:
Equity Residential will cheat you out of your money for everything. I got my security deposit back with $600 deducted because they deemed the unit dirty when I cleaned it thoroughly before vacating. The photos they provided were of things like water streaks on the stove and specs of dust tucked between the rubber of the fridge door. Apparently that calls for a cleaning fee of hundreds of dollars. They are criminals.
Advice to owner:
Try treating tenants like people and not scamming them out of money by overcharging for everything

Not worth it
Former Tenant
Pros:
Great repairman quick to respond and knowledgeable Friendly neighbors Great location
Cons:
Small apartment for such a big price tag No gym No Business center No outdoor spaces No pool No security- Door staff let’s anyone walk in or are away from the desk often Laundry room is dingy and expensive Big Roaches everywhere staircases have peeling paint Hallways and stairwells are filthy Concierge has gatherings in the lobby during the evening hours You can hear all the outside traffic and noise even from the 16th floor Building often shuts off the water due to poor plumbing and leaks
Advice to owner:
Get a grip on your building the aesthetics are horrible
