Fun Post Grad Spot

Former Tenant
Pros:
lots of fun, great spot to be post-college. Our apartment has a lot of great light. The roof is a blast and a great way to meet people
Cons:
PACKAGE STEALING! Leaks and repairs take a while; we had a cockroach infestation at one point and ended up having to take care of it ourselves. Our fridge and living space was super small. Super loud from street noise and with everyone being young it's not possible to have a quiet night on the weekend, but I don't know anyone living here who has a problem with that. Elevator often broken after weekends
Advice to owner:
Get a better workflow in place for bugs and trash and PACKAGE STEALING

Great apartment if you like wondering how certain things happen

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location is amazing. Close to everything. Good neighbors. Noise between apartments isn’t bad. Heat works well!
Cons:
There have been some iffy scenarios, upon asking management they make up some response as to how it happened versus actually looking into it.

Unreliable Property Management Company & Super

Former Tenant
Pros:
Beautiful apartments with exposed brick and in-unit washer dryers. Can't beat location.

Management is completely unresponsive. Hot water and water pressure is terrible despite multiple complaints.

BED BUGS RUN!

Former Tenant
Pros:
Super clean, nice, party apt, roof top is sick. Great spot for post college apartment
Cons:
BED BUGS! BED BUGS! THROUGH THE WALLS. Wrap that mattress up buddy cuz they’re comin
Advice to owner:
If an apartment has bed bugs and people are literally covered in bites… MAYBE you should help them out!

Great building to live in overall

Former Tenant
Pros:
-responsive and friendly super - elevator - virtual doorman - rooftop - clean in lobby
Cons:
-trash often overflows in garbage room so sometimes there are rats but unsure what else management can do about this with the number of tenants in the building - a few cockroach sightings in my apartment but pretty typical for the neighborhood and being on the second floor -packages often stolen (again, less of a management issue but for new people moving in to be aware)

Avoid if you can

Former Tenant
Pros:
It’s in a very convenient area
Cons:
Horrible management - looks great when you tour but as soon as you move in, everything breaks and it takes them weeks to get things fixed. We didn’t have a working toilet/tub for over 3 week
Advice to owner:
There is a reason why tenants don’t stay and it’s sad because I would’ve been more than happy to renew our lease if there just would’ve been better management.

Don’t rent from them

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nothing at all.
Cons:
Unresponsive property managers, losing hot water consistently with no urgency to follow up. Just the worst management ever. Never rent from them
Advice to owner:
Maybe respond to tenants who are paying your lease

Don’t live here

Former Tenant
Pros:
There are non this place sucks
Cons:
Everything. The owner was in prison for money laundering. The building blows your phone up and breaks into your apt while you’re in the shower cuz you are not even a month late on rent. The super never responds back in a timely manner and once I got locked out of my apt at night and he was on the train headed home to NJ and refused to come back to let me in my apt so I had to call a friend to ninja jump into my apt from the fire escape to unlock my door. I was waiting outside for 5hrs cuz the super was acting like he was on his way or was sending someone to me but wasn’t. There’s also a HUGE group of people that party almost every night on the stoop for hours until early morning and non of them live in the building or even on the block (they are nice but very loud and leave the stoop covered in trash, food and fluids there’s a guy that comes in the morning now to clean it but wasn’t always like that) the water pressure sucks and in the winter you never get hot water in the shower but bathroom and kitchen sink you do so it’s not the water heater. In the summer you never get any cold water in the shower but you do in the bathroom and kitchen sink. Rent is crazy high and you still pay gas water and utility bills. When I moved in the kitchen light was broken and to this day (2yrs later - yea stupidly signed a 2yr lease) it still isn’t fixed. I have to wait months on end before getting something as simple as my bathroom sink fixed, dishwasher is always breaking, a light fell out of the ceiling and still 2 months later no one’s come to fix it. 
Advice to owner:
Get the issues fixed in the apt units. Figure out what’s going on with the hot water. And most of all have a heart and work with your tenants on decreasing rent. We are going through a global pandemic that’s affected every human in the world and has caused a lot of heartache and financial struggles.
