Reviews

Shut building down

Former Tenant
Pros:
They give good heat, and hot water. THAT'S IT THAT'S ALL.
Cons:
They don't fix anything, clean anything, do anything. They don't care. These apartments are falling apart and they do nothing. They always have an excuse on why they keep things messed up. The people they're now moving in don't care about the building. They live here and tear it up, don't respect their neighbors. It's a sh$t show in here.
Advice to owner:
If you don't want to do your job STOP buying buildings. You're scared of your tenants so they do whatever they want. Stop going into these minority neighborhoods buying buildings to let them be torn apart by the people they move in.

Sad to write this

Former Tenant
Pros:
Really isn’t much good to say about this please
Cons:
Horrible building  unsatisfactory
Advice to owner:
Could do better in building maintenance and in Super and tenant communication also could do and improve and time management in fixing up and checking on tenants with issues in their apartment and not have their workers call them names or talk behind their back or in front of them, while doing their work with their colleagues tenants and buildings have the right to complain about any work that needs to be done, and should be done in a timely and respectable manner

Run Away Fast!!!

Former Tenant
Pros:
The apartments are spacious, and you have access to storage units.
Cons:
This place feels like a horror movie: - the old management used to screen the new tenants; now, they let anyone in the building. People blast music all night long and show a lack of respect. - the new tenants let their kids run all over the building and liter. No one really picks up after them. This attracts rodents to the buildings, and now you might see rats; there are roaches and mice in the building and other pests. - the new management and newer super really don’t do anything - they rarely answer the phone. - the building doesn't clean out the garbage rooms daily, OR they pick and choose which garbage they want to take out. I.e., if you throw out a television, it might be in there for weeks. - the building is filthy as no one cleans the staircases, laundry room, or elsewhere - honestly, I can go on and on — this place is not worth the rent or headache
Advice to owner:
Do better! Stop letting anyone move in the building, keep it clean, and be better individuals.

This place is terrible. In all honesty!

Former Tenant
Pros:
No pros unless your a roach or rat looking for an apartment.
Cons:
Life threatening, poor maintenance, landlord lacks professionalism, he pays a homeless man by the name of “Pechi” with beer to clean his building. Rats are out growing household pets and becoming very dangerous. And soooo much more .
Advice to owner:
Sale the building to someone who can afford to get it together.

Run of you can

Former Tenant
Pros:
Close to the subway station
Cons:
Be ready to wake up without hot water and heat during the coldest day. Be ready to fix things yourself because the landlord won’t do it. Make sure you are at home if you are expecting a package otherwise it will stolen.

THE WORST PLACE EVER

Former Tenant
Pros:
Spacious Rooms 2 bathrooms Multiple closets
Cons:
When my family first moved here in 2013, there was no gas in the building until they evicted us in 2017. Yes read that again, no gas from the time we moved in to the time they evicted us out. We went to court to fight the eviction and mentioned how we stopped paying rent because of the negligence of the owners to get gas for their tenets. And of course we lost because of the horrible housing court system we New Yorkers have, especially for people of color. PLEASE AVOID THIS BUILDING AT ALL COST. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE MONEY. There were people who always were at our steps smoking weed and nothing was done about it. The landlord and some of his goons stole several items from my house once the eviction notice went up.
Advice to owner:
DO BETTER, KARMA IS REAL

slum lords

Former Tenant
Pros:
There is always parking on the block of the building and they have a parking lot.
Cons:
Management takes forever to fix repairs. Constant links in apartment. Rat infested. The machines in laundry mat are always broken. Use to have a security guard and with this new management team we now do not. incinerator is always packed with garbage and clean sporadically.
Advice to owner:
Stop treating your tenants like animals. Treat your tenants like human beings.

Horrible living environment!

Former Tenant
Pros:
Friendly people live around other then that nothing
Cons:
They do not fix anything! I call the office and nothing is ever fixed! Its dirty! Always loud. Can’t wait to move out!
Advice to owner:
Listen to your renters, help them, you are happy to receive your rent money, you should be trying to make is happy to live here! Stop being so selfish and help out!! Fix the problems instead of throwing them under the rug. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to move here you do not get your money’s worth! I have lived here for 6-7 years and they have never came up to even paint no matter how many times i call the office and ask for it.
