Reviews

Run-down slumlord building

Former Tenant
Pros:
I liked the location, proximity to M15SBS bus and East River, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Lived here for five years. Rent was raised fifty dollars a year every year we stayed. Hot water was pretty reliable, only a couple of days a year when they were doing work on it.
Cons:
Owner (Eli) pretends to just be the manager. There are roaches but it's manageable. Trash area is infested with rats attracted to restaurant on the ground floor. Management won't fix anything and often will send someone over to mansplain to you that nothing is broken and no work is needed. There is no on-site super (which I'm pretty sure is illegal for a building this size) so if there's a huge water leak the owner will just say "deal with it until the next day" as happened one time. Our toilet barely flushed for years and they would never fix it. Traffic noise from Madison is quite a lot for the outside-facing units, but neighbors were generally pretty quiet with one or two exceptions. Lots of turnover in the building—it's often Pace students who party hard and don't stay longer than a year. Water from the taps has a rusty color, which is not so uncommon for 100+ year old buildings but is not luxurious.
Advice to owner:
Fixing problems with the building will save you money in the long term.

Nice building but poor management

Former Tenant
Pros:
Apts are more spacious and cleaner compared to other buildings in the neighborhoods
Cons:
We never know who the landlord is and the super manages everything which makes me suspect he is the landlord. Poor management, gas has been shut off for more than 2 months since July 2021 and the super doesn’t even communicate what happens and his plans, anytime you make a complaint he will ALWAYS find excuses and gives you attitude, and almost Never on time to fix things for you, so basically we work around his schedule, the management is what really will turn you off.
Advice to owner:
Hireprofessional team! Stop being so cheap! Work on your communication skills!

Not the worst in Chinatown

Former Tenant
Pros:
It offered abit more space than the usual Chinatown apartment and that’s it. Lots of food options around. Fun if you’re in your early 20s.
Cons:
Everything was falling apart. The neighbors were loud and things constantly smelled bad. The building had major plumbing issues. The apartment was very dated and old. Neighborhood can be unsafe depending on which side of the street you’re on.
Advice to owner:
The building needs a major facelift or rent to match the condition it’s in.
