Nice Walk Up

Former Tenant
Pros:
The design of the entry and staircase is nicer than a lot of walk ups, The location is prime, Located on a quiet block with good shops and places to eat, Super is very helpful and responsive.
Cons:
Virtual doorman goes down quite a bit, Stairs are extremely steep and dangerous because they are marble. They mop them daily but leave them very wet and slippery as there’s no traction pads on the stairs, It’s miserable going up or down with a suitcase/packages but that’s any walk up, There’s always rats out front of the building at night but again it’s nyc..

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.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nice looking apartment on top floor. Used to have roof access
Cons:
Did not have heat or hot water in the winter for months with a total lack of action by management, despite countless calls, emails, and withholding of rent payment
Advice to owner:
Please listen to your tenants and cover the bare minimum.

Great area, horrible building management company - do not rent form centennial

Former Tenant
Pros:
The high ceilings, the crown molding, the exposed brick, washer dryer in unit and small outdoor space
Cons:
Old building, the radiators aren't big enough to heat the entire apartment - space heaters required in the winter months, rats in the garbage area, mice seen in the hallways/apartment, some apartments have new appliances but others don't - old appliances break down constantly and the building management group will not replace
Advice to owner:
Be less of a slum lord

Bad Management Here

Former Tenant
Pros:
Affordable prices and clean hallways

The super doesn’t want to fix anything. We have reached out to the super of this building several times but they usually take weeks to respond.

Make sure everything is cleaned and is properly working before renting it out to other people.

Great building with some caveats

Former Tenant
Pros:
Super is one of the best you’ll find. Great location for getting around the city, but 14th st (and the courtyard in back) can get very busy. Very active building on the weekends.
Cons:
Management company is unresponsive and fights on everything. Lobby and staircase/trash area always smells gross.

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

Property Companies, amirite

Former Tenant
Pros:
Garbage was always handled, exterminators came around monthly
Cons:
Dealing with a large company is hard, they raised our rent 25% after the first year, and there is someone who steals packages that the landlord hasn't helped
Advice to owner:
Deal with the package thief!

Great first apartment

Former Tenant
Pros:
Super was great and very responsive to any issues. Building was kept clean and neighbors were nice. They did have an exterminator come once a month. Great location - quiet at night, but close to anything you want / need.
Cons:
I was on the first floor (not ground floor) and killed 4-5 cockroaches in my 1.5 years there. Bugs on ground floor when I took recycling down.

Avoid 9300/Centennial/whatever they rebrand themselves as next

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location. Package room. Location, location...
Cons:
We had a leaking roof (multiple times), for weeks before any shotty repairs were done. They will not respond to any of your requests, especially when you’re trying to leave and an application needs a landlord referral. Constant construction for adding cheap “nice looking” features so they can jack up prices. Do not rent in any buildings this company owns.
Advice to owner:
They’re too far gone and need to go out of business. Just Google Steve Croman

Non-existent

Former Tenant
Pros:
Cleaned daily, supers have been fantastic and responsive, and neighbors are quite pleasant and quiet
Cons:
There's a skylight in my living room which renders the heat upwards of 80 degrees in the summer as well as water damage from being on the top floor; I've reached out 5 times (and counting) and haven't heard a word from the building manager. Do not recommend leasing from Centennial, the new property managers.
Advice to owner:
Respond to your tenants.

Thieves and roaches

Former Tenant
Pros:
Elevator and the super(s)
Cons:
Package thief lives in this building. DO NOT let any deliveries sit for more than 10 minutes or it’s a guarantee it’ll be stolen, especially if the brand is visible on the box. During the worst of Covid-19, the building was OVER RUN with roaches. Management would ignore repeated calls/emails.
Advice to owner:
Spend a dime and INSTALL CAMERAS.

Unreliable

Former Tenant
Pros:
The location of the apartment
Cons:
Unresponsive property management. Old, broken appliances. Neighbors with loud dogs when they are not allowed. Roaches inside, rats around garbage bins where you take trash out to.
Advice to owner:
Respect your tenants since we pay a high price to live in the West Village. Uphold your end of the lease. Offer flexibility during covid.
