Reviews

This is a review from 2011-2013

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location! Great outdoor space!
Cons:
When we were robbed in the middle of the night due to a malfunctioning lock on our living room window, the management did absolutely nothing. We filed a police report. Not only were we robbed, but the buildings to the left and right of us were robbed in an identical manner during the same week and the management took no onus as to the lack of functioning locks on living room windows. They ignored our complaints and never fixed the locks.
Advice to owner:
I don't know if it is still the same property owner ... but if it is, buyer beware.

Poorly managed, mold in building

Former Tenant
Pros:
location is good
Cons:
Mold in building. Management would enter without notice. No pest control. Slow to repair if they ever do.
Advice to owner:
Maintain your building appropriately.

Mediocre but functional

Former Tenant
Pros:
- location - wine cooler - new-ish appliances - in-unit washer and dryer - incredibly tiny space
Cons:
- water takes over 5-10 min to heat up each time - heat is off for over half the day during winter - floor is old and gross
Advice to owner:
Fix the hot water and heat

Former Tenant

Great location and every week they are there cleaning the hallways and stairs. Brandon is super great and always friendly
Cons:
Raised rent a ton and the curling leaked in our apartment and took months to fix

I’ll miss this place

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great experience here. Neighbors are friendly, packages rarely get stolen, a porter comes by every weekday to keep the place clean. The super, Jonathan, is awesome!
Cons:
Centennial is money hungry and NYC Management was sometimes unresponsive

Great location, less than great neighbours

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location, edge of West Village.
Cons:
- Neighbours are loud, walls are thin. You can hear your neighbours talking in their living room from yours. - Weed smell comes through the walls, especially from the bottom, if the floor under you smokes. This happened a lot. - The backyard has all the trash bins, but it appears that the rats have eaten holes into the bins. The lids have multiple holes. More than once I’ve faced a big rat in a tiny space relegated to trash, it’s unnerving.
Advice to owner:
The apartment should have smoking banned. It’s a very old place and apartments are not airtight, it’s very easy to be bothered by the smell from floor below.

Good apartment but horrible management

Former Tenant
Pros:
- apartment nicely renovated - washer/dryer in unit - convenient location - safe neighborhood - very quiet (can't hear cars, street noise, etc)
Cons:
- rat and cockroaches infestation - heat/hot water often not working in the winter - management unresponsive - cooking gas was not working for 10 months, landlord did NOT tell us when we signed the lease. We found out once the lease was signed and when we contacted the gas company to set up an account - rent increased by 14% in 2 years

Maintenance takes forever

Former Tenant
Pros:
in-unit washer dryer not super old right next to the 103rd St ACBD station right next to central park deli on the corner makes great sandwiches
Cons:
rooms a bit small and one room barely gets sunlight a ton of maintenance issues when first moving in that took forever to get fixed (washer dryer barely working and shaking violently, still don't have a doorknob on one of the doors, lights don't work, took 6 months to get the wine fridge we were promised, leaks) wifi box only works plugged into the room at the end because someone previously cut the wires and no one wants to come fix it (makes wifi to the other end of the apartment bad) our first super was nice but didn't know how to do anything and they pretty much overworked him second super is really knowledgable but again overworked so takes forever to get to things apartment was a mess when moving in radiator in one room didn't work at all throughout the winter some outlets always tripped for some reason packages keep getting delivered to an address that isn't here all the apartments on this block owned by the management company used to have the same code to get in the buildings and there was a burglary in one keypad to get in didn't work for a while and they never gave us a building key water would go out often for maintenance

Regarding the Historic St. Marie

Former Tenant
Pros:
I've lived in this building for 45 yrs. It's an historic building in a NYC historic district block. The apartments that have not been shoddily redone are not nice. The apartments that are still rent regulated are large and historically beautiful.
Cons:
The owner is the notorious criminal, Steven Croman. He with holds heat and hot water continuously every year. We have mice and a bad sewage smell immitting from the basement that floods often. They also store garbage in the basement that causes rodent infestations. Bird nest infestation causes bird excrement all over our windowsills, front steps/stoop and the fire escape. The public halls are often never cleaned. Best advice ..DO NOT RENT FROM CENTENNIAL PROPERTIES THAT IS OWNED BY STEVEN CROMAN !! LOOK HIM UP ! HE IS A HORROR!!

Living at 1215 Myrtle Ave

Former Tenant
Pros:
It's cheap. The living room is spacious. It's close to the JZM lines.
Cons:
The Super is not always around and blamed us for pre-existing problems. The Landlord is terrible and a pain to talk to. They both blamed us for every issue that we had. He is the most frustrating person I've ever had to deal with, and the only reason why I won't renew my lease. The area isn't great and not too safe. We had someone break into our building and there was arson committed twice on Myrtle ave within one year. Packages and mail are always getting stolen. Homeless people sleep on the front step and frequently try to get into the building. There are multiple problems with our unit that were never fixed. There have been many lock issues.

Nice features, prices, so-so neighbors

My unit was fully renovated and has nice features and amenities, which were great. They keep the hallways pretty clean and the garbage/recycling area has improved from when I first moved in. The super and management aren't always very responsive but with some nagging they'll get things done.
Cons:
Not all the building units have been renovated and some seem to be long term rent control units with lifelong residents who can be...quirky. Some younger, partying types seemed to have moved in and can be loud as well. The heat is overwhelming sometimes and the hot water can be scalding hot.

Worst property managers ever

Former Tenant
Pros:
Super is responsive, location is amazing
Cons:
Don't expect your property manager to care whether you live or die. It's like pulling teeth to have them make repairs to actually make your apartment livable. They have no problem not fixing things like heat, hot water, mold, water damage, flood damage or any of the appliances. The super is nice and helpful but the management company will actually go out of their way to not fix anything.

Not the worst rental option in Manhattan

Former Tenant
Pros:
The apartment itself was lovely, with really nice finishes. The super was great and responsive. The building was clean and pretty well maintained, by NYC standards.
Cons:
When we moved in there were some issues with mold in one of the closets, which were addressed. Other repairs went unaddressed for almost a year, which was very frustrating. It seems management changed during our 2 year lease because after a year of being completely unreasonable, rude, and unresponsive, they were replaced by seemingly competent people (who were at least less rude). May be a one-off experience though, as I’ve heard some pretty bad things about the company from others who have rented in the past.

Gorgeous, well-maintained building with great amenities and layouts. The property managers responsible for cleaning, garbage removal, maintenance etc are exceptional when you can get a hold of them (tough because the property management team doesn’t communicate with them).

Cons:

Over a foot of water flooded into the bottom floor of our apartment during hurricane ida (this was two weeks before we had 4 inches of water during hurricane henri). My roommate and I had to clean and disinfect everything ourselves (along with every other apartment that has a basement floor). I’m still waiting on a response as to whether they will provide any assistance with reimbursements or cleaning up the existing mold damage and warped floor tiles and bathroom door. Our apartment also never reached above 66 degrees in the winter unless we used personal heaters which then drove up our electricity bill.
