roach infested and unresponsive management
Former Tenant
neighbors and community. many people have lived in the building for years and are quick to welcome you in!
roaches everywhere, the super’s and the exterminator’s solutions did not work and management is very unresponsive regarding all requests

Not a well maintained building
Former Tenant
Laundry room on every floor and heat in the winter
Building and garbage is not maintenance well. Roaches in the hallways. Mice in the building Management is non responsive Elevator consistently breaks down Hallways and laundry room are never cleaned.
Advice to owner:
Do a better job on cleaning the building and keeping the garbage area clean. Consistent pest control is needed every month to prevent roaches and mice and needs to include the garbage rooms. Management also needs to respond to tenants complaints.

Definition of a 3-Star Building
Former Tenant
Spacious bedrooms/living rooms. Lovely hardwood floors. Most apartments get amazing natural light. Most apartments have a sunken living room upon entry Good closet space
Management takes forever to respond, they’re often out of office. Had to threaten management to get pest issue handled. Elevator has not been updated Packages are often stolen from mailroom Kitchens are small, but usable Flooring is antiquated Shared facilities (garbage room/laundry room) on your floor are not always accessible (what’s the point in having a garbage shoot or laundry on your floor if you can’t use it) Apartments are only painted or upgraded when you’re leaving
Advice to owner:
The current super is trying his best; however, management operates like they do not really care whether things get addressed or not. It’s frustrating to be dealing with a pest issue for months on end because management move at a snails pace.

Do not live here
Former Tenant
Sizes of apartments are bigger than normal NYC apartments. Con: there were very little COVID measures put into place during the pandemic. The super still I’d get together a or everyday congregations of people that hang out in front of the building. Common areas were barely sanitized and if they were they were BARELY sanitized.
Neighbors harrass you Super refuses to many fixes to the apt Super and neighbors harassed me to the point where I had anxiety leaving out of the apartment The leasing off tried to evict me because of homphobia The laundry facilities are filthy The apartments and the building as a whole is infested with roaches. There was black mold growing on the ceiling of our bathroom due to lack of ventilation Had to learn how to fix an oven pilot because super refused to come and fix it but sent a drunk loiterer to fix it instead... Lady upstairs made so much noise and stomped so hard that at the end of my stay here there were crack in the ceiling. The garbage disposal on each floor never works The super has large functions downstairs (during COVID) no mask on just people walking and eating in his apt and in the lobby
Advice to owner:
Cons Continued: the super smoked weed with the tenants even though it’s prohibited in or around the building. I know another landlord who came to the building and called the building filthy himself. That speaks volumes. For starters get rid of the super, get the pest problem under control, and then do a deep cleaning of the building. It’s disgusting. You can literally find roaches crawling on walls outside of your apt or in the lobby while waiting to the elevator. And fix the elevator I’ve gotten stuck in there twice. Very scary seeing as though it’s an ancient (and filthy) elevator. Point blank just find someone willing to actually work, and the building MIGHT get better. Because the tenants have nasty attitudes. To newcomers or to anyone of the LGBTQ. Another tenant literally told me they were reacting like this because they didn’t “know” me. As if that’s a grounds to harass someone where they reside.
