Reviews

Washington Heights Apartment

Former Tenant
Pros:
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.

Fairly good, excellent super

Former Tenant
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.
Advice to owner:
The super is great, hold onto him.

Clean & quiet

Former Tenant
Pros:
Heat & Hot Water included in rent, lovely superintendent, very clean and quiet for the most part, neighborly feel
Cons:
Property Management Co. not always very responsive, not great communication in advance about plumbing/elevator shut offs, no tenant control over heat in the winter (way too hot)

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

Hole in the ceiling

Former Tenant
Pros:
Huge units, awesome location
Cons:
Terrible maintenance. I had a hole in my ceiling that took months to fix.
Advice to owner:
The super needs more assistance and maintenance requests need to be fulfilled quicker.

Great Location.

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location! Spacious apartments.
Cons:
Lots of old tenants that have been here for decades. Cranky and complaining. Landlord has a checkered past with bending rules/laws.
Advice to owner:
Don't be so cheap and follow the laws.

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.

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
