DO NOT RENT HERE!

Former Tenant
Pros:
The location of the building, the size of the apartment, kitchenette and bathroom.
Cons:
The management company is horrendous! The people that work for the management company and extremely rude… and inattentive. There is not a maintenance person in the building. The management company staff does not respond to anything you ask for.
Advice to owner:
Retain a completely different management company. You own a building that could be incredible, but the management company makes living in this building awful!

Former Tenant
Pros:

Cons:
security is abysmal. there’s no camera at the door which the restaurant next door has full access to. packages have been stolen with no action from management to prevent or improve the situation. gas was off for over a year and they tried to raise the rent from 3000 to 3750 while it was still off.

My experience

Former Tenant
Pros:
Clean, Bug guy came every month, friendly super
Cons:
I had no gas the entire time of my lease, leaving me to cook on a hot plate. Also it is very hard to get in touch with someone from the office. Almost impossible. They will ignore your calls and emails.
Advice to owner:
Man up bud.

No cooking gas for a year!

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet building and good location.
Cons:
Have not had cooking gas for almost a year, management keeps telling us it's going to come back but still nothing. Found out the building did not have cooking gas the day I moved in, no notice before that. Yes, we are getting a small discount but not worth it for the building. Apartment, specifically the kitchen is poorly constructed, and we have had issues with mice in the past. There is a virtual doorman but the front door camera only works half the time. My neighbors and I have had issues with homeless people coming in and out of the building and one of my neighbors even had a homeless person attempt to enter their apartment. Management is not great to deal with and they are generally unresponsive and unfriendly. Would not really recommend unless you don't care about any of the above (especially about cooking gas) and if you care about the location more.
Advice to owner:
The building needs to be better maintained. Someone moved in a couple of months ago and their movers punctured two holes in the wall in the hallway. Nothing has been done about it. There has still been no updates on the cooking gas and the kitchens in some of the units need to be updated.

Stinky

Former Tenant
Pros:
Close to train
Cons:
Rats galore. Garbage in the back of the building is straight out of a nightmare. Tenants don’t bother putting their trash in the bins anymore unless they want to get gobbled up. They fling it into the general direction of the trash from a few feet away.
Advice to owner:
Get rodent repellent trash bags like the other buildings on our block do. Get someone (super?? Never there) to clean the back every day so it doesn’t get out of control at the end of the week.

Cons:

Advice to owner:

Unhappy Camper

Former Tenant
Pros:
The flowers in the street.
Cons:
Flowers 28 LLC + Rowdy Management are horrible, and not professional at all. There is no phone number to contact anyone directly for any maintenance inquiries. The hallways are uncleaned; cockroach and mice infestations going up and down the hallways. The trash area is small (3 garbage bins) and with all the units in the building, the trash piles up quickly. I was duped into moving in with the hopes of cooking gas turning back on. It's been precisely a year when the gas has been shut off. Poor maintenance and cleanliness. The steam radiator also has a loud bang when it starts. Feels like someone banging it with a hammer at 5am. Have reached out to management for the last month to have someone come look at it. Neighbor down the hall passed away and the door is taped off with clear plastic. Pleasant sight to see daily. Wouldn't surprise me if the building becomes condemned. Do not move here.
Advice to owner:
Actually get involved to see how you can remedy the issues: sell the building or demo it.

Poor Management, Nice apt

Former Tenant
Pros:
Somewhat renovated apartment that was spacious. New kitchen, bathrooms were a tad older but overall nicely redone and very spacious 3 bed with closets in every room, very tall ceilings, 2 full bathrooms, dishwasher, and private roof. Another great pro if the apartment has Carson mobile doorman which is great for walk ups as you can use an app to buzz ppl in and watch live video footage of door to ensure you’re letting in the right person
Cons:
Management was very slow and not fully helpful. The hallway and roof flooded during rainstorms, which meant the carpet should have been cleaned or replaced (wasn’t). Our neighbor left her dog in her apartment for months alone, which resulted in a horrible smell and we had to call 311. However, management was helpful here. Other than that neighbor issue, we had no other issues with neighbors. The super was kind but not very responsive, as he didn’t live in the building.
Advice to owner:
1) Have apartment move in ready with paint and cleaned before renters move in. 2) Have hallways and common areas Regularly cleaned including the rug

Horrible Management (Margules Properties)

Former Tenant
Pros:
Central air, in-unit, recently renovated, great rooftop, lots of natural light
Cons:
We had water coming up from our kitchen sink, flooding our apartment and nobody would come. There were multiple issues with the paint on the wall, the lighting fixtures, and vents when we moved in even though they said these issues would be fixed. One time I had WINE dripping from my smoke detector. Our washing machine was broken for months and management was non-responsive. Basically, don’t expect any help from management if something is wrong with your apartment. The super is nice but there’s only so much he can do. The people who work for Margules are so nasty and unprofessional. I will never live in one of their buildings ever again.
Advice to owner:
Fix your entire business. Nothing about your management is working for your tenants. We are fed up!

Stay away if possible

Former Tenant
Pros:
The location is wonderful, very close to subway and great restaurants. The super is very helpful and responsive, he assisted me in fixing closet doors and water pressure of the shower
Cons:
Almost everything. Shower doesn't work sometimes, the water gets cold and hot randomly, very low pressure during my first 6 month. The cooktop/range is not working 100%, only the two burners that can be used. The freezer in the fridge is not fully freezing food, and the fridge stopped working completely in my last month, spoiling my food so I have to bin it. Neighbouring building is noisy as hell, loud partying even during pandemic.
Advice to owner:
Do a wholesale maintenance of the unit at least, make sure everything works before someone moves in, that should be the standard

Nice apartment, questionable maintenance, great location

Former Tenant
Pros:
Updated apartment, great space overall, good location, quiet in regards to the street noise, not in terms of the building. Other tenants are college kids so weekends are very loud. Personally, this does not bother me, but for some, it could be troublesome especially when it's at 3 am.
Cons:
Maintenance takes forever to get anything done, property management is not very responsive to email requests, missing inside door (second door) to the building.
Advice to owner:
Be more responsive of issues/maintenance especially in the hallways of this building.

Bedbugs! What a horrifyingly stupid experience it was to live here.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Good area, nice and renovated apartment
Cons:
Bedbugs, horrible plumbing, disastrous process in retrieving security deposit back
Advice to owner:
If there’s bedbugs, fumigate the entire building and LISTEN to your tenants. You can’t just ignore them or give them grief about wanting to leave a place that is infested with bedbugs. A complete nightmare.
