Responsive Building Landlord

Honestly not a bad deal for the area
Former Tenant
Pros:
-Recently renovated rooms -Relatively chill landlord as far as they go -Close to subway, parks, grocery stores, buses, restaurants and the like -Lots of natural light -Diverse occupants; longtime Harlem residents and newcomers alike -Working elevator, if a bit slow -Attitude of landlord seems positive with improvement in mind; whether that is at the expense of current residents is yet to be seen
Cons:
-Package area can be a bit messy and is unguarded -Small roaches -Buzz in system a bit tricky to use -On the main drag, so there is a lot of noise at times -Not the prettiest street, though this is an issue with the city. Lots of garbage and rats on the side street, and litter on the main street.
Advice to owner:
Increase the frequency of pest control to bimonthly in the summers, add a security camera or other deterrent to package area until approval for Amazon locker

Nice apartment, responsive mgmt
Former Tenant
Pros:
The managers are responsive. The super is live-in and available. The porter is super nice. There was NO BROKER or BROKER FEE. The door buzzer can hook up to multiple cell phones so you can let deliveries/guests in remotely. USPS has access to a parcel locker. The hot water gets very hot. Has an elevator.
Cons:
Due to the short time between move-out and move-in, our apartment was only "broom clean" when we moved in. Could have probably used a deeper clean between tenants. We get some roaches.
Advice to owner:
A community bulletin board would be nice for talking about stuff like trick-or-treating, advertising babysitting/petsitting, etc.

Lack of Care
Former Tenant
Pros:
Close to the train, restaurants working elevator
Cons:
- Lots of packages stolen, owner does nothing to secure the mail area refuses to get cameras - No online rental payments - Building smells -No hot water atleast once a month, terrible water pressure - roach issue - Chicken spot on corner creates constant noise and activity at night - Owners have attitudes and terrible tenant communication.
Advice to owner:
-Invest in better mail securement area and cameras , people pay too much rent for packages to be constantly stolen and nothing to be done about it. -fix the water pressure and hot water FOR GOOD - reply to maintenance emails - There should be laundry in this building
