Decent building in Washington Heights. Building management has implemented some improvements. Location is near the A train, which is convenient. Building has laundry access.
Cons:
Would be better if there would be more renovations and improvements throughout the building as some areas are in need of repair and/or cleaning.
Advice to owner:
Consider offering improvements for existing tenants within their units.

Pros:
Current super is excellent and extremely responsive They fix most things promptly Laundry room not that busy Quiet No pest problems
Cons:
One major pipe burst/water issue Work on the hot water/heating usually crops up. They do fix it but annoying when there's an issue and a few days in a row it's off in the middle of the day. Kind of difficult about getting occupants added to the front door directory. Package theft.

Great Renovated Apartments But..

Former Tenant
Pros:
Elevator Nice neighbors Great renovated spaces
Cons:
Management makes new tenants pay $500 a month for a security call box, so the units end up being more than advertised/you should be charged. It's low key illegal
Advice to owner:
Remove the ridiculous charge

nope dont do it

Former Tenant
Pros:
Prewar building, laundry downstairs, location? idk it sucks
Cons:
***packages routinely being stolen, 1-2 times per month. Police reports filed. and still more packages being stolen*** also the downstairs door doesn't lock and the building refuses to fix it, so completely unsecured building. Scaffolding up forever. Management non existant laundry room always broken packages stolen all the time
Advice to owner:
Be involved. Take down the scaffolding since its not being used at all for YEARS and fix the building facade when you're ready not leaving it up forever.

Terrible management but good bones

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great units and location. Great neighbors. Liked the super and porter.
Cons:
Management/Olshan Properties goes out of their way to stall and run interference rather than solve issues. Laundry has been out of order for two weeks at a time. They rarely answer emails or queries promptly or clearly and never answer the phone or call. The negligence boarders on tenant harassment. Ongoing issues with water pressure and water quality.
Advice to owner:
Take your job seriously. There seems to be a lot of staff and yet totally ineffective.

Terrible bug situation

Former Tenant
Pros:
The building offered me a great covid deal, and I appreciated the neighbors that had been in the building for a long time. The doormen were also really nice.
Cons:
There was a serious bug infestation and I had seen multiple cockroaches in my time there. The location of the building also isn’t the best, and I think it’s a little overpriced.

Its livable.

Former Tenant
Pros:
They are strict about garbage and recycling. save the planet ig. cleaner options are available for heating which would do far more than recycling most of that junk just gets thrown into landfills anyway but they dont know that. solar panels are installed yay yay! roof view is cool. rooms are spacious but for a high price tag.
Cons:
Land lord refuses to negotiate lower pricing for an overpriced 3 bed room with occupants who payed in full for years even during a pandemic when 16% of new york has departed! Lobby always has random items and junk laying around. Land lord is unfriendly and never seems to want to help with anything other than pest control which is often needed. OVER PRICED..
Advice to owner:
Negotiate with renewed contracts and care about the people within your building. what are we paying for exactly other than the apartment itself??? It took days to get a hold of the owners to negotiate a lower price just to be turned down like crazy people.

Pretty great building

Former Tenant
Pros:
Super is great and the assistant super. Any apartment issues get fixed pretty quickly.
Cons:
Laundry room always has broken machines, there are only 4 of each and seems like at least one of each, if not more, are broken at all times. They also are old machines that don’t do a great job. Management is slow to return messages and deal with building issues. Heaters are very loud in the winter.
Advice to owner:
Get new laundry machines.

Needs better management

Former Tenant
Pros:
The neighbors (for the most part) are great; friendly, kind, thoughtful. The halls are mopped every week, common areas are kept pretty clean
Cons:
Building management is horrendous. We have gone through 3 separate supers in less than 6 months. The one now is fine, but overall, it takes them forever to do work in the apartments. We had water dams for in our apartment from an upstairs leak months ago. They started working on it 12/18/20 and they STILL haven’t finished the job. The efficiency is lacking. The Elevator has also been out twice, both times around the holidays. The first time it took them over a week to get it repaired and we have a decent amount of elderly/handicapped tenants that RELY on that to get out of the building.
Advice to owner:
You have to stay on top of the management group or nothing will get done

Wonderful building, Great Neighbors

Former Tenant
Pros:
The building has a great layout and the entry is wonderful. Having an elevator and laundry in the building is a plus. The proximity to the A Line subway can’t be beat! New Super is helping to take care of issues quickly.
Cons:
There has been a consistent issue of packages being stolen from the lobby. management has done next to nothing to help resolve the situation. The common areas need serious attention and improvement - peeling paint, poor lighting.
Advice to owner:
Olshan Properties - There is an opportunity to make this a jewel of a building in the neighborhood. The location is ideal. Do not ignore it.

Bad Management Company

Former Tenant
Pros:
Clean, well kept, live in super, laundry, elevator. Really nice, if un-renovated, apartment. We liked living here until the awful move out process started.
Cons:
Unscrupulous landlord. Charge illegal fees and treat their employees poorly. Our wonderful super left because of bad treatment and the leasing agent stopped working with them because of their terrible business practices. They charged us an illegal $350 cleaning fee when we moved out of our immaculately cleaned apartment and we have been unable to fight it. This family literally owns shares of the Yankees and then charge unemployment artists illegal fees in a pandemic. They’re terrible people.
Advice to owner:
Stop charging illegal fees

Nice 2-bedroom in a nice building.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great building with awesome staff. High ceilings, HUGE den.
Cons:
34th street kinda sucks. Also, our kitchen water quality was not great for whatever reason. Everywhere else was fine.
Advice to owner:
N/A. Everything was good.

Overall, we’re happy living here

Former Tenant
Pros:
Management is pretty responsive and super is really great and a nice guy. Quick to respond to a text or email. (building is a mix of rent control/stabilized and regular units) I’ve heard from my rent stabilized neighbors management isn’t very proactive with their requests, but any problems we’ve had have been fixed pretty quickly. Really big windows and lots of light in the unit Intercom rings to your cellphone, so you can let the dog walker/UPS person/house cleaner in from anywhere
Cons:
Since Covid started, we’ve had break ins or attempted break ins to the building about once a month. Mainly it’s to steal packages bc we don’t have a doorman or package room. The managements ONLY response has been to replace the locks on the doors. It’s a problem and I’m very frustrated with their lack of an appropriate response to this issue b/c they could be faced with a bigger problem if a tenet walks in on a break in. Lobby looks like a VFW hall from 1975 Carpeted common hallways look pretty disgusting/stained, wish it was tile, that would be easier to keep clean Some of the common hallways are VERY narrow (29”). We couldn’t get one of our chairs down it when we moved in - they also couldn’t get the refrigerator down the hallway (that they ordered for the unit) bc the hallway was too narrow. So our fridge is weirdly small for the space. No one can figure out how to use the new intercom system - although it’s better than the old one Our unit is renovated and they made some very strange choices with our kitchen and how incredibly small it is compared to our massive hallway that is a waste of space Wish the building had use of the roof I’ve found their rent “help” solutions during covid to not be particularly helpful and kind of comical.
Advice to owner:
Figure out the break in problem and have an appropriate response. I’d love it if we could have roof access - for the amount we pay in rent, it’s the same as a luxury building without any of the amenities. Pls update the lobby and pull up the disgusting carpet.
