Ok for starter apartment....
Former Tenant
Pros:
The rent was decent for my bigger, street facing room (<$1000). Super close to the subway and decent distance (less than 10 min walk) from laundromat and grocery stores. Modern stove/oven (digital temp control for oven).
Cons:
Ceiling started to mold at one point but that issue was resolved quite quickly and didn't happen again. The apartment really retained heat so literally one of walls in my room would sweat, had to hang posters on walls that didn't or it would get ruined. Few large cockroach sightings. Lost hot water once for more than one day. Multiple tenants had to complain about the hot water to get it resolved. At one point, Con Edison posted a paper on our door saying they were going to cut electricity the building at some point since the owner hadn’t paid them. The apartments themselves were going to be fine since tenants paid their own electricity bill but the fact that the owner was not paying electric on time that Con Ed had to threaten to turn off the building’s electricity is abysmal. Rent increase at end of lease was ridiculous considering the apartment had no common area (if you treated the place like a three bedroom) and two of the bedrooms barely got any sunlight since they faced a back alley.
Advice to owner:
If multiple tenants complain about a necessity, it should be fixed immediately. And pay your own building’s electric bill!

charmed but disappointed
Former Tenant
Pros:
neighbors are generally friendly/not too loud, roof access, close to laundromats and groceries, right next to the G.
Cons:
not worth the money or stress. we lived in a 3 bedroom (no closets in any of the rooms, tiny kitchen, no living room) for $2900 total. management is not on site and not communicative at all; several pest issues, mold and rust that was never fixed, several other maintenance issues that went unaddressed, had some packages stolen, building is very old and not kept up well. we had bedbugs in the summer of 2023, management did not cover the entire cost of the service.

Good location, not a good building
Former Tenant
Pros:
The building is located near some good coffee shops, bars and restaurants. It’s also right next to the subway stop, which is convenient.
Cons:
Poor insulation combined with noisy/inconsiderate neighbors made for a loud living environment. The lock on the front door would be broken at times and the garbage bins outside were also a mess.

Nothing that special
Former Tenant
Pros:
The building is well-maintained, neighbors are respectful, location is bomb
Cons:
Old appliances and cheap, shallow sinks/cabinetry, a shoddy paint, typical bk stuff, etc.
Advice to owner:
Clean the inner courtyard, update all the kitchens and cabinets
