Not a safe living environment
Former Tenant
Pros:
I second the review under me. The super was slow to respond but George the backup super was very helpful. Management was kind and understanding of lease break due to the toxic cigarette smoke. The garbage was always handled properly to prevent rodents.
Cons:
There is a tenant who chain smokes cigarettes inside which seeps into the apartments as well as the entryway. There was also a chemical smell entering the apartment I lived in which I presume other substance use. The walls of the building are thin and the neighbors are heard throughout the day and night. The smoke made the building unlivable. Definitely not safe for the children who reside there.
Advice to owner:
Evict the smoking tenant who is breaking the lease. Nothing will fix the smells in the building without enforcing the smoking policy in the lease.

Nice neighbors but the smell made it unlovable
Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location, quiet street, friendly neighbors. Diane with the management team was very nice and helpful. George (backup super) was also great!
Cons:
The entire building had a mix of second hand smoke and some other chemical smell which would come into the unit. It made the building unlivable for me unfortunately. Besim (main super) is very slow to respond, not particularly helpful.
Advice to owner:
Rip up all the carpeting in the hallways, likely they have soaked up years of cigarette smoke. Restrict tenants from smoking in unit or get some ventilation in the building. It’s definitely an unhealthy environment and there are kids living there!
