Very unstable housing - not worth the location
Eventually I saw it as a blessing to be evicted bc my new building is so much nicer (and cheaper)
Raised the rent 62% Very thin walls Weeks without heat Super not available (will not give contact info) Constantly woken up in the middle of the night by “walkthroughs” Extremely loud building Black mold
Stay away - there is no justification
I loved moving out after 1 year due to an 85% increase
Evil management with a history of litigation against them Rats and bedbugs in almost every apartment Only had heat 1 out of 8 days No super Walls are thin
Advice to owner:
Do some personal reflection
Owner has been sued by the supreme court
Very close to trains, cute semi-updated apartments, quiet street on the front side, generally accessible to a lot
The owner has a well documented history of pushing out rent-stabilized tenants through illegal means and is overall unresponsive except when he or his lackies are being vile. Bugs, trash, no super available, the front door constantly locks out and in tenants, constant loss of heat and electricity. Discrimination against non-English-speaking tenants and old appliances.
Advice to owner:
Try to develop the bare minimum amount of empathy to participate in the community that is the LES
Move Disney Word
Area is nice
Mice everywhere, thin windows, pigeons in the back alley every morning waking you by SMACKING the windows. I had someone come weekly about mice. Once left for 2 weeks and came back to my entire food stash taken and strewn across my place. The kitchen sink I once turned on and faucet popped off and legit hit me in the face. Do NOT move here .
Advice to owner:
Fix the mice problem, take the gross trash OUTSIDE, do better.
Can’t Have It All
LOCATION!! and for its location it’s pretty quiet... washer dryer was always reliable, one of our two bedrooms had amazing light, large deep sink, feel safe walking into building (as a woman too) , was kind about the move out date amidst covid
Lizmar was COMPLETELY unreliable. Nothing EVER got fixed until i put my diva shoes on and demanded “special” treatment...as if having a working shower was a luxury... zero kitchen space, and also horrible lighting. zero natural light in living space. loads of stinky pigeons in back room
Advice to owner:
Listen, AMAZING location, great “bones” but don’t expect much... just live there, be simple and clean you’ll be happy... the more independent you are the better! don’t expect things to be taken care of in a jiffy for you
Overwhelming location, underwhelming management
Prime location, private outdoor space, W/D in unit (not true for all units)
Terrible management, outdated plumbing, unreliable neighbors (packages go missing frequently)
Advice to owner:
We have advised management multiple times that we would like to add a camera in the lobby to deter package theft; Second entry door needs a lock; we haven’t had a working stove fan in over a year (despite multiple work requests) ; heat and hot water are a consistent issue in the winter.
