We need a Super
Former Tenant
Pros:
Some neighbors are nice
Cons:
People need to know where to put their garbage. Need to work
Advice to owner:
Must listen to the tenantas when they call with a complain. Needs to come and ck to see how ppl are maintaing the apt. Too much is going on horders etc.

Rent stabilized for some trade-offs
Former Tenant
Pros:
It’s inexpensive and some of the apartments are pretty newly renovated. A lot of the tenants have been there for a long time and the sense of community is strong.
Cons:
The elevator works maybe 55% of the time, and is always filthy because the super uses it to transport trash to the basement. There is often a massive pile of trash at the base of the main staircase collecting pests. Packages are almost always stolen, seriously I’ve lost so many packages I just have them sent to a friends house. Hallways are very dirty, walls gross and floors unswept. The lobby is pretty depressing. A houseless woman lives in the vestibule on cold days which is honestly fine but no one cleans up the space.
Advice to owner:
Get a super that does his job and cares about the building/older tenants. Do more to prevent package theft. Take a little pride in your property, it’s very historical but honestly it’s a total dump.

Dirty, ongoing issues and non resposnive super
Former Tenant
Pros:
Apt is bright, high ceilings and very spacious
Cons:
Elevator goes out constantly, the super barely responds to concerns and ongoing issues with hot water/pressure. Packages get stolen constantly! I don’t think they report bed bug issues to the city so be careful!

Unresponsive super, packages get stolen, negligent management
Former Tenant
Pros:
Large units Ample heating Garbage maintenance is decent
Cons:
Super NEVER responds, even though he lives on site Did not fully prepare unit for move-in People steal packages here Elevator smells HORRIBLE Other tenants have complained of pest problems (personally, I have been lucky)
Advice to owner:
Get your super to respond. Install video cameras to see who is stealing packages.

Super completely unresponsive
Former Tenant
Pros:
Huge unit, never cold, mostly pretty quiet.
Cons:
Super doesn’t answer phone or doorbell even though he is on-site, neighbors steal packages, water pressure is awful. I’ve heard from other neighbors that there’s a pest problem (although I haven’t experienced one).
