Avoid 414 E 88th 5D

Former Tenant
Pros:
No at all
Cons:
If you don’t want to have troubles and endless threatening letters from landlord’s attorney, and even can’t get expenses incurred reimbursement from landlord, which was promised by the landlord and if you don’t want your landlord keeps changing terms to refuse to pay you back, avoid 5D. If you don’t believe me and rent this unit, you’ll regret.

Living in 321 E 45th

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet street, nice staff, clean building.
Cons:
Had seen a mouse at some point but the super was very involved in helping us prevent anything like that in the future. Very responsive.
Advice to owner:
Keep working on pest control.

Liked living there for several years - great experience

Former Tenant
Pros:
The super is amazing and will go to great lengths to help tenants. There is a little park located directly across the street and several cafes/restaurants right around the corner. Few students/young people living in the building so noise levels within the building are generally low.
Cons:
The building is located near Amsterdam Ave and across from several large apartments buildings. They often have outdoor parties during the summer and music has played past 2am several times. The traffic from Amsterdam echoes and you can easily hear it throughout the day and night. Additionally, for 3+ years there has been construction (not sure what for at this point) going on across the street and noise levels have only decreased on Sundays. Several surrounding buildings have become a haven for rats in the past year and that has affected the building.
Advice to owner:
Consider increased pest control given the serious issues occurring in other buildings on the street.

Not bad but overpriced

Former Tenant
Pros:
The location is great, and most of the tenants are friendly!
Cons:
Loud, not just street noise, but from the couple that fights on the second floor and their dog. Can be freezing at times. Lots of bugs, we were told several times the exterminator was coming but it took months to resolve. Our bathtub dripped to the floor below, and it was never resolved, we were just told not to take baths.
Advice to owner:
Lower the price

Great Value, Lot of Noise

Former Tenant
Pros:
Price, location, living room size, great super and maintenance
Cons:
Noise (thin walls/ceilings and band practices in basement), little natural light on the back side, rowdy neighbors/intermittent fights amongst the family tenants
Advice to owner:
Work on the noise of the band in the basement. Update the kitchen to match some of the nicer units. Combat petite roach problem.
