Run far away from here

Former Tenant
Pros:
Literally nothing. This place is awful.
Cons:
Roaches, rats, heat and hot water issues, windows broken, fire escape isn't in great shape. Oh did I mention the fact that management doesn't respond to any emails or fixes anything? Packages get stolen all the time, the door is often broken. Don't forget about the ROACHES!
Advice to owner:
Close your business.

Do not rent here

Former Tenant
Pros:
When I first moved into the building it was brand new. Construction had just finished. The walls were clean, new appliances, it’s a walk-up building but made look like those new buildings in Williamsburg Brooklyn were I came from. It’s across the street from a hospital, Who is recommended the apartment from a realty company who had high recommendations on it and assured me the building would be a quiet place to live.
Cons:
Boy was I wrong. As the months went by I started to realize all of the flaws about the building and new tenants started to move in the building progressively became a disaster. The hot water takes about 15 minutes to come on and when it does it only last for about 20 to 25 minutes. I’ve made numerous complaints about it and still to this day two years later the hot water comes and goes. Everything in the building is electrical there’s no gas so you pay for AC central conditioning and your oven. So if you want heat in the winter time getting ready to pay a higher electricity bill. Every time you cook and turn your oven on expect your electricity bill to be higher. The tub is made out of plastic and chipped easily. Should you wash with any type of color cleaning products like green or blue Ajax it will stain it blue/green. When it rains there is a leak in the roof so the water goes through the entire building and all of the apartments. The finishings on the plumbing aren’t sealed completely so there’s water damage to the cabinet and leaks in the sink in the bathroom and the bathtub. Tenants should they fall asleep or forget to turn the water off and have a flood the water leaks into the bathroom and kitchen and destroys the sheet rock on ceiling and Landlord or super do not repair or hasn’t repaired yet one year later. Light went out in the bathroom and Subaru still yet to fix it and the light messed up from water damage from the upstairs apartment flooding. Tenants moved in and are crazy. and the second floor was the older man who lived and I guess had two men come stay over with him and became squatters. The two men that stood with him are drug addicts, thieves, loud, One of the dudes bullies the older man and their friend. So much so the elderly man who’s apartment it was got evicted and the two men ppl who came over never left when the old man moved out and are now squatters for over 5 months now. Now the two squatters the aggressive dust head one bullies the friend who stood behind, caught him runnings for his safety up the fire escapes, hid in hallway closets even slept in the sometimes which cause the super to put locks on all closet doors in the hallway. The aggressive squatter now calls throughout the building up and down the stairs screaming writing upside down crosses on every single door and floor and start, goes around bullying and trying to break into the other apartments, has destroyed the locks on the front door and back door of building. On the third floor is a toxic couple with children who seem to beat each other every single day are drunk every single day and fight in the hallway and the apartment. Usually you should mind your business but when the fighting is in the hallway and you hear these little girls screaming for their life you have no choice but to get involved, The boyfriend is also a drug user and quite possibly the girlfriend Sue and go throughout the building fighting every day screaming even on weekends and early mornings. On the fifth floor seems to be where all the drunk people are. Be prepared for tenants on the fifth floor to be asleep while the water is running and flooding all the apartments from the fourth floor down, tenants in the hallway screaming and fighting and drunk acting belligerent. When throwing out the garbage in the back of the building be prepared to tackle rats cats and raccoons. If you have a delivery to the building be prepared for FedEx UPS or any delivery service to be too lazy to walk up the stairs and leave your package in the lobby. That’s OK but what makes it horrible is when tenants in the building steal your package. So I wouldn’t recommend having anything delivered here even if it is left in front of your door, IT WILL BE STOLEN! When it rains be prepared for the water to come down into every apartment.
Advice to owner:
The super and the landlord do nothing to fix anything in the building except the super is a little bit more attentive. Yes the super will come and try to fix it but not fast enough or it will just be like putting a Band-Aid over a war wound. If you make a complaint about the noise or the other tenants screaming and arguing in the hallway or threatening other tenants all the super and Landlord will say is “ yes we know crazy people call the cops.” If you tell the landlord something is wrong in your apartment he says he would sell the super and when the super comes he sees what the problem is and then says he will tell the landlord. Does anything get fixed? Not really. If you have a problem with another tenant in the building and you confront them landlord the landlord will say that he does not want to get involved in any problems amongst tenants. Even if the other tenant has threatened you harassed you assaulted you and groped on you. You can call the police but the police really don’t do anything in this building they’re called about 3 to 4 times a week and even sometimes twice in a day. They know the squatters and do nothing about it they know that they are drug users and be in the building threatening people and the cops say they know them and will handle the situation but it never gets handled. So for months the cops landlord and Souper know that they are tenants and squatters in here using drugs and threatening other tenants and stealing and trying to break into the apartment but nothing is done. You can call them to make a complaint about some thing with your apartment or other tenants and expect for not much to be done.

Love Living Here

Former Tenant
Pros:
Beautiful, old & charming. We managed to score this apartment during COVID and so glad we did. It’s spacious, has huge outdoor space, and the management is very responsive.
Cons:
We have a ground level duplex and the basement gets damp and wet. It’s old so things come along with the age- wiring and electrical stuff. But I truthfully don’t have any complaints that aren’t typical of a 100 year old building.
Advice to owner:
Keep up the good work. We love this apartment and feel happy here.

The experience depends on which floor you are located

Former Tenant
Pros:
Laundry in the building, garbage availability and storage, and location
Cons:
Thin walls, water bugs (on the first floor and basement area), small unit (studio), elevator issues (constantly broke down)
Advice to owner:
Pay someone to treat the water bugs to rid them from the building.

Management Sucks A$$

Former Tenant
Pros:
Place is huge
Cons:
Walls are paper thin and they didn’t say anything until we already moved in. Management isn’t responsive to anything regarding basic necessities like heat (didn’t have heat for 2+ months in winter) and water (didn’t have hot water for a month). Don’t live here
Advice to owner:
Be honest with tenants about noise, and try to do something about the noise! Also the lobby smells like piss

Beware of noise levels if your apartment windows face Bedford ave

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nice and responsive management, parking lot, elevator
Cons:
In summer 2020, the restaurant across from the building on Bedford ave began playing VERY loud music every single day as part of their pandemic outdoor dining. If your windows face the street and you work from home, the music levels are a nightmare: absolutely not conducive to thinking straight or taking calls. The weekend days are the worst—very loud, thumping music from noon until 10 pm. Many afternoons and evenings too when the weather warms up. It feels like you’re living in a nightclub, and will fray on your sanity. (Many noise complaints were filed, building management attempted to speak with the restaurant. Nothing helped.) The building is lovely and well managed. But if your windows face Bedford ave, then during outdoor dining, the location is basically unlivable if you want any semblance of sustained quiet.
Advice to owner:
Find a way to mitigate the music volume and frequency from the restaurant across the street. Outdoor dining is here to stay, and that is great! But if this level of music continues the apartments facing Bedford Avenue will become unrentable and unsellable.

The worst land lord and management company ever!!!

Former Tenant
Pros:
There are no PROS ! There is no heat for half of the winter ! No hot water because they forget to refuel the boiler leaving tenants 3 to 4 days with out hot water ! No super , disgusting hallways , crack heads coming in and out to live in the roof
Cons:
No safety, no cameras, your packages WILL get stolen, no fixtures you have to go to court to get things done in this building!! It’s horrible!! Or keep calling 311
Advice to owner:
Get your shit together! Or sell the building to the tenants , or to another person that actually cares about people that don’t live on 5th ave !! And get rid of MD2 management group !!! The worst management company ever we have had 3 different managers in a matter of 4 years !! Victor! Dennis! Now Avery !! They all suck !!

Great place in BedStuy

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nice people. Good community in the building. There used to be a lot of problems, but they seem to have gotten their act together and now it’s gotten nice. They’re about to do a major renovation to make a roof deck and other stuff.
Cons:
Elevator sometimes is slow.

Hope you like pests!

Former Tenant
Pros:
Almost all of the he unit have outdoor space. Great location in the heart of Bed-Stuy.
Cons:
This building has a serious roach problem. Not small roaches either. Large, outdoor, flying roaches can be found throughout the building. The elevator is brooklyn at least a few times a month. There have been several break-ins in 2020 where packages were stolen. The washers malfunction at least once a month. The basement (where the laundry room is located) floods when there's a heavy rain. You can hear everything from the units around you. The super can be non-responsive, but there's also a lot that needs to be fixed in the building so maybe he's just busy. There have been multiple instances where past of the building have fallen off and on to the sidewalk.
Advice to owner:
This building needs a lot of work.
