Decent Place but Noisy
Former Tenant
Pros:
Great super, awesome area in the city.
Cons:
Lots of rodent problems throughout the building. Owner is non-responsive, heat and hot water is constantly out, and numerous HPD complaints and violations are filed weekly.

Not worth the money. Thin veneer of fools gold covers…mostly shit
Former Tenant
Pros:
Relatively quietly building. Nice neighbors. Our apartment was renovated (in most regards)
Cons:
Electricity goes out every 1-2 weeks Boiler breaks resulting in no hot water constantly Our unit had cracks on the out window sills and muddy water would deep through the break and puddle on the ground when it rained. The paint on the walls is so cheap that just brushing up against it causes it to rub off. Once you’ve scuffed it you can’t even clean it because using water further damages the paint.
Advice to owner:
You CANNOT advertise this is a “luxury” unit (and charge $3000 for barely 500 ft) and then handle it like crap. I’ve never had a place that has so many problems with water and electricity. Do better.
