Home, with unsolved problems

Former Tenant
Pros:
Price. Apartment is basic, but nice and maintained. Kitchen replaced when moved in, bathtub.
Cons:
Super is a nice guy, but super slow. Some issues took more than a year to repair. Garbage cabinet and chute were filthy, neighbors constantly left stinky garbage in open bags on cabinet floor. This led to roaches everywhere, all the time, and occasional mice. The worst part as violently loud noise from the compressors of a bodega on the street level, 24/7. They shook the building and created terrible noise. Condescending landlord refused to do anything about any of these issues.
Advice to owner:
Remember your obligations and responsibilities as landlord. - Fix noise issue with sound isolation. Easy and cheap. - Monitor cameras to find tenants that leave trash on floor. It's easy to make your tenants life much much better. Take action instead of giving arrogant answers that don't solve anything but your power trip

Enjoyed my time here

Former Tenant
Pros:
Enjoyed my time living here. perfect location to Austin street, train, and walks in Forest hills gardens. Very friendly and welcoming staff and doormen. Pet friendly.
Cons:
During colder months the heat was not very powerful even with a cover on AC unit. Believe this might be due to not the strongest insulation on older windows. Walls are thin, however my floor was overall pretty quiet so wasn't a problem for me.
Advice to owner:
Looking into making units more insulated to keep in heat.

Do your own research!

Former Tenant
Pros:
Spacious layout and lots of natural night. Tree-lined street and quiet neighborhood. Neighbors are nice and friendly. Laundry in the basement and building is clean.
Cons:
Elevators always broke down and not enough laundry units for the size of the building. Cannot stress enough: Do your own research on the owners, building management, and brokerage!
Advice to owner:
Hire people who can at least pretend to be nice.

Beautiful historic building, but dirty and poorly maintained

Former Tenant
Pros:
Fantastic location and good apartment layouts.
Cons:
A professional deep cleaning is needed Filthy floors in common areas including the lobby, stairs, and elevator. remove years of grime on the floors would make a huge improvement. Building entrance door and exterior of building need maintenance.
Advice to owner:
The common areas need a professional deep cleaning. Weekly light mopping is fine, but most buildings do a heavy cleaning of floors at least annually.

Apt with issues

Former Tenant
Pros:
Lived in a unit facing away from the street and jt was pretty quiet, could barely hear the street. Heat was good. Was on the cheaper side compared to similar units when I rented
Cons:
Had mice and pests, floor boards were very damaged. Very unresponsive to the smaller issues like the toilet not working or a leaky sink. Toilet had issues and in the end we had to fix it ourselves because we got tired of waiting. Super Says someone is going to come over fix it and no one shows up at said time.
Advice to owner:
Just do the things you’re supposed to do.

Nice building on a pretty block

Former Tenant
Pros:
Best super ever! Also nice apartment interior, good temperature control in winter, nice neighbors and pretty street. Close to subway at 191st. Management organized, honest and straightforward . More than you can say for 90+ percent of buildings in NYC.
Cons:
Cockroaches in the spring/summer. Mostly gone once we decluttered and closed holes. Ditto for the one mouse we saw. Noise from broadway if your windows are on 190th. Management could be a little short tempered in their tone.
Advice to owner:
Continue to be honest and straightforward with tenants. This is much appreciated , and rare in NYC.

Mgmt always combative

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location 3 washers 2 dryers when rented(no longer) Size of apartments.
Cons:
Bldg manager often very difficult or unresponsive to problems. Super part time & little English (45 Units). Common areas not well maintained Basement often filled with trash & safety/fire hazards (including in boiler room and other rooms in basement). Outside areas poorly maintained - with safety/fire hazards, trash/old appliances, furniture/ hanging wires blocking or interfering w/emergency exits. Questionable renovations and building code violations for medical offices on first floor. See basement & outside of laundry area for examples. Questionable use of 2nd floor TENANT space by medical office. Laundry area now questionable (formerly 3 washers/2 dryers - reduced to 2 washers 1 dryer with little or no clear info provided to tenants - NUMBER OF MACHINES was a big "selling point" when building was shown to prospective tenants). Building in past 2 years has had several incidents of open drug use, theft, threats to tenants by friends/family of super.
Advice to owner:
Step up and do your job to maintain safety cleanliness repairs and facilities (LAUNDRY needs to be addressed and expanded to once again serve the needs of more than 40 units). Super should be FULL TIME and should be able respond clearly to calls/messages in both English & Spanish. First floor offices and all utilities used need to be inspected and brought up to code.

Sex Offenders in Building

Former Tenant
Pros:
First off, this building is steps away from the 4,5,6 trains which is awesome (a block away). It’s near a lot of delis, local restaurants, a gym, a little “complex” of a theatre, bank, fast food, Starbucks, CVS, etc. It’s next to Yankee Stadium. It’s also a small little diverse neighborhood - small in the sense that a lot of people are centered in one area. Target within a small mall is about a 15 minute walk away. However, please read my cons.
Cons:
There are sex offenders in this building, and I hope you won’t be living with one. If I were you, I’d invest money to do a brief background check on the residents of this building before even doing a tour/visit because you’d IMMEDIATELY see some have a history of sex offenses. Some people look very serious but are the slickest sex offenders. There’s zero air ventilation in some apartments because they are illegally constructed, meaning some spaces are forced to be a bedroom when they shouldn’t be. They have NO windows. You will suffocate like I did. Within a 2-block radius, this neighborhood is safe especially since Yankee Stadium is nearby so cops are generally alert in this area. Walk further such as walking to the nearby Bank of America and you won’t feel so safe anymore. There’s a courthouse about 3 blocks away. That block is HUGE and the space is HUGE but that’s where homeless people and drug dealers group together. Water pressure in the apartment is a no no. The bathroom shower’s water pressure is so bad, it was hard to even take a shower. My biggest problem was the sex offender who lived with me. I didn’t think to check the person’s background until the person went too far. Do your research before moving anywhere, especially here.
Advice to owner:
No comment. My stay was so bad, I’m just glad I’m out of there.
