Good location, reasonable rate
Former Tenant
Pros:
Right by the park, right by the train and easy to get into the city. Flatbush is a delightful neighborhood and so is PLG. The super is great and friendly.
Cons:
Common areas in the building are not cleaned regularly. Definitely a cockroach problem.

Short term sublet
Former Tenant
Pros:
Location to prospect park and the Q is unmatched
Cons:
Hallways were very dirty, elevator was slow but not too bad. Right next to a major intersection.

Good location, slum lord management
Former Tenant
Pros:
Across the street from the park, steps from the Parkside Q, close to lots of stuff including good laundromat, not too noisy considering the area, people and super who live in building are friendly, some of the better floor plans I’ve seen in the area, elevator, big lobby and nice intercom system
Cons:
Management are known slum lords. They email using 2-3 words max and are either careless or dense. Super can be unresponsive sometimes but he must be overwhelmed with how much shit is falling apart in the building. He is a friendly and hard working guy. Can’t get rid of the tiny roaches 2-3x a week no matter how clean our unit is, building isn’t well exterminated.
Advice to owner:
Just put in effort and the building would be really nice

Sh*tty Management Company
Former Tenant
Pros:
Across from the park, great neighbors, convenient location, wonderful neighborhood, dog-friendly.
Cons:
The management constantly has to be threatened by legal action to fix things like busted floors or doors. They have repeatedly said it is “not their responsibility” to provide a secure space for packages. There is room for in-building laundry—they are too cheap. Refuse to provide bike storage even though there is room in building. They new super so good but his English comprehension is not great for this demographic and not everyone speaks Spanish.
Advice to owner:
Stop being cheap and slick. Fix shit. Be decent.

It is what it is…
Former Tenant
Pros:
Apartment unit was large for a one bedroom.
Cons:
A LOT of pest. Super was unresponsive most of the time. Building management doesn’t care about you.
Advice to owner:
Would like to see better care for tenants aside from collecting rent or send lease renewal mail.

Needs improvement
Former Tenant
Pros:
Friendly, responsive Super. Quiet building
Cons:
Building hallways, and common areas could use more cleaning. I’ve seen roaches in apartment, and throughout the building. A better extermination effort needed.
Advice to owner:
Make a better effort to exterminate the building.

Convenient but a headache
Former Tenant
Pros:
Close to transportation and the park.
Cons:
Its like pulling teeth to get anything fixed. Water bugs in hallway and the occasional mouse.
Advice to owner:
Seal holes in apartments please.
