Decent first apartment
Former Tenant
Pros:
Some of the bed rooms can be small. The building is decently maintained. The building is pretty young so you can meet people. The rooftop has a great view. The gym does the job.
Cons:
The amenities are not really kept up to date or cleaned that well. The building is a few blocks away from grocery stores.

Great Neighborhood, bad management
Former Tenant
Pros:
Building is unique in that it’s a converted former school, beautiful rooftop with city skyline views, great maintenance cleaning crew for common areas, secure mail room (when postal services properly utilize it), yoga room, large windows, large apartment with high-ish ceilings and nice floor plan, nice lobby/ common area aesthetic.
Cons:
Laundry room has 7 washer/dryers shared with two neighboring buildings so often times there are no machines available to use except the ones that are out of service and don’t get repaired for weeks/months, the tv’s in the recreation room/laundry room/gym don’t work, gym bathroom has never had soap, elevators constantly out of service for weeks, weekends tend to be a free-for-all with parties on the roof and basement and tenants propping the main entrance open for anyone to come on in off the street, maintenance tickets/work orders submitted to management are often never addressed even after multiple attempts, package theft, when you’re in the laundry room in the evening it feels unsafe because you’re in full view to passerby’s on the street level sidewalk through the basement windows. Lots of package theft but also theft of bikes etc from hallways and management won’t assist by viewing camera footage.
Advice to owner:
Actually followup on maintenance tickets, update common areas and replace dartboard, fix what’s broken, have better security and be more on top of parties thrown by tenants and the entire borough.

It was okay
Former Tenant
Pros:
We got a lot of sun, and the area was pretty quiet. The amenities like gym and rooftop were also really nice.
Cons:
Walls are so thin, I would raise my voice and the neighbors were already knocking on our wall. Management isn't super responsive; our windows did not insulate and winter was pretty rough --- our electricity bill was so high due to heat being included in electricity bill.

Generally Okay for NYC
Former Tenant
Pros:
We had a unit on the ground floor, and had no issues with pests as the building is elevated from street level. The high ceilings really helped with making it feel spacious, as well as helping us get lots of sunlight. The amenities were also really good, laundry in building, gym and common room. Having a dishwasher also helped.
Cons:
1. The windows are not properly sealed, our apartment feels too cold in the winter and hot in the summer. We can feel the wind coming through during the coldest days. 2. This caused our electricity bill to be super high. I also believe the building has a efficiency level of D. 3. While management is responsive to smaller issues such as clogged sinks, it look a long time for them to fix issues with the laundry room. Only recently they replaced all the washer dryers.

17 Monitor Tenant
Former Tenant
Pros:
The building is stunning. The view from the roof is unbeatable. Having elevators is a nice luxury. The handymen are great and keep everything clean. With the exception of the roof which can get messy after parties.
Cons:
The owners and managers company only exist when it’s time to renew the lease. They are jacking up every unit’s rent in the building an exorbitant amount and forcing people out of their homes. They are absent during their religious holidays and impossible to track down.
Advice to owner:
Hire people outside of your religion to do the office work in conjunction with your current staff. I went multiple weeks without contact when it was urgent. Stop being greedy and price gouging people who have been good tenants. We are all already hurting enough with inflation and our salaries aren’t increasing.

Absent management and awful noise isolation
Former Tenant
Pros:
Bathrooms are nice
Cons:
So loud, in your apartment you can hear the neighbors at other side of the building closing their door. It’s nuts how loud this place is. Also there was a neighbor stealing packages and the landlord did nothing.

If you have cash and don’t care that it’s broken!
Former Tenant
Pros:
It’s a beautiful building, and on paper great amenities to enjoy. Modern design But look closely and everything is a bit broken down. It’s probably safe and mostly bug free!
Cons:
Last summer none of the locks worked on the roof or amenities so, i had lingering suspicion that anyone was coming in and using and leaving the place a mess. The sun roof was constantly trashed, and the seat cushions were so gross but mgmt never fixed. Constantly stolen packages despite a mail room. EXTREMELY high electricity bill, some thought were due to being charged for common areas, but probably because everything is electric including hot water. Tiny ass fridge for 3 people. Just expect high utility cost as the units aren’t that efficient for tall ceilings. Sketchy extra document was sent to me and my roommates to get notary signed after ending our lease, it felt like they were trying to cover up something.
