Reviews

Building is falling apart, packages constantly stolen

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet street and building, good location.
Cons:
Packages are usually stolen within hours (thief neighbor possibly?). Management / super are both unresponsive to issues unless you press them hard and it'll still take a while. Building is literally falling apart: walls, floors, and ceilings often break/disintegrate. Apartment came dirty with broken fixtures and appliances.
Advice to owner:
Get a camera for the lobby so packages aren't stolen. Respond to maintenance requests.

89 Clinton Street LES

Former Tenant
Pros:
Garbage taken out readily, lived on 4th FL so no pests but ground and 1st did have problem, Eliot (landlord) was always responsive.
Cons:
The owners of the building are terrible. They scam you by not offering your deposit, are inflexible, and we had a MASSIVE leak in our bathroom. The roof was wide open and there was a tarp for 6+ weeks. Mgmt did nothing in regards to rent compensation. Mold was an issue bc of this.
Advice to owner:
No one ever renews their lease for a reason.

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

slice of heaven

Former Tenant
Pros:
The location was PERFECT, laundry in unit, management responded pretty quickly when in need of assistance
Cons:
if you live on the 2nd floor you will be able to hear people on the street, even if they are whispering. the coffee shop downstairs has a bar that plays music super loud, no central AC, very expensive for the size
Advice to owner:
soundproof windows, lower the price (an apartment that size really should not be more than 3.5k)

Former Tenant

Do not live in the rear building

Former Tenant
Pros:
Washer/dryer in unit and a dishwasher
Cons:
There's a mouse infestation in the courtyard that they aren't doing anything about- it's not even habitable on the lower floors. The rear building doesn't have real heat. They give you the "opportunity" for heat by having electricity and providing wall mounted space heaters. The winter month heat bills cost $300-$400-$500-$400-$300 from November to March. And that's with the apartment still being cold!
Advice to owner:
Install real heat in the building and make a real effort to solve the mouse problem.

Home for Mice

Former Tenant
Pros:
The trash is taken out regularly and the stairs and hallways are well maintained and clean.
Cons:
The place is invested with mice. Apparently there’s nothing they can do about it. If they put poison in the walls the dead bodies will pile and the place will start to smell. The radiator makes the loudest clicking sound that shakes the whole apartment and will cause you to wake up most nights in the winter. I think it’s due to trapped air in the pipes. The sounds is concerning and it sounds like the pipe will burst
Advice to owner:
Please fix the rodent issue and the pipes

TERRIBLE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

Former Tenant
Pros:
I liked the location
Cons:
If I could give this company a negative rating, I absolutely would. The service was sub-par at best, and they are horrible at communicating. But to top it off - in dealing with a terrible person in bookkeeping, he told me over the phone that I'm a difficult woman and that I must be single because a man would never deal with a woman like me. And then he hung up on me. I originally thought he was strategically avoiding answering my questions, but it's clear now that ignorance was the bigger factor here.
Advice to owner:
While everyone at your property management company seems to be miserable, it's no excuse to treat the tenants like garbage. Being "too busy" to respond unless they need something from the tenant or ignoring people because they made a mistake is unacceptable.

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)

Beware the bar next door.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nice building, well maintained.
Cons:
First floor apartment - do not live there. Right next to a terrible Kava bar that has people loudly outside all night. Tons of cigarette and marijuana smoke. You can hear everything at all hours of the day. Not worth the huge price tag, even for a duplex.
Advice to owner:
Reduce the prices.

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.

Pros:
Exterior looks nice and the location is great. Not many bars on clinton street so it’s pretty quiet for LES.

Quality of the building needs improvement! And please hire people who are experienced and understand the importance of being responsive when a tenant is experiencing issues. Issues like rat infestation and no heat in a cold winter month.

Management change

Former Tenant
Pros:
Highly recommend this building if you can negotiate a cheaper rent during COVID. The renovated apartments are nice as long as nothing breaks!
Cons:
If you’re paying the usual rates of over 4K for a one bedroom it’s not worth it. The management company has a lot of turn over. They’ve incredibly slow to fix issues like no heat or a broken front door. We went months without a working front door to the building. They are very slow to fix anything in the building and not responsive to requests.
Advice to owner:
Fix building wide things that are broken to ensue your tenants have heat and security.

Lazy Property Managers

Former Tenant
Pros:
In a good location
Cons:
9300 Realty Property Managers do not respond. Jerome Yeiser does not intend to follow up or respond to request. Many maintenance requests sent to management or constant changing supers never get addressed or take months to even get someone to look at.
Advice to owner:
Be appreciative that you have renters paying rent every month and don’t treat them like shit. Given the status of the property/rental market in Manhattan they should be making sure that each building and resident is happy and willing to resign their lease. At this point I would not renew or sign another lease with this company or recommend to another person to do so.

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.

Avoid At All Costs

Former Tenant
Pros:
9300 Realty recently changed the name to Centennial Properties NY is the worst landlord in NYC. The building is crumbling under the fake exterior of the units and you will be ghosted by management and lied to. My ceiling fell and I am going on five months of no help with mold water dripping etc.
Cons:
I have written both cons because there is nothing good about this building or Croman owned buildings. The biggest con is my lawyer fee to protect my money from these crooks.
Advice to owner:
I hope your real estate license is taken away. Also don’t take your tenants money if your family is flaunting their money around NYC.
