Gross roach infestation

Former Tenant
Pros:
One of the best blocks on the LES, pet friendly building
Cons:
This building is unfortunately completely infested with roaches on all floors. We see dozens a day at all times of the day throughout the apartment (not confined to sinks). There have also been hot water and heat issues - going multiple days without - throughout the winter.
Advice to owner:
Fix the roach issue

Cons:
Front door lock is broken and packages get stolen, heat often doesn’t work in the winter, mice, roaches, super doesn’t show up to fix things, someone keeps taking the trash room door code off the door so trash gets piled into the lobby

Awful place to live

Former Tenant
Pros:
Really nice finishes in my apartment and every unit has a view. Great location for subways.
Cons:
Management is terrible. We had no heat in January and they didn’t respond once. We had a rat infestation for months before they did anything. My stove has been broken, the person they hired to fix blatantly stated it needed to be thrown away. Building front door is broken 2 times a week
Advice to owner:
Hire a property manager? If you already have one, fire them. Also spend some time reading the landlord laws.

5 out of 10 Experience

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location on the LES, and the building itself has a lot of character
Cons:
We had issues with hot water outages that weren't announced ahead of time, pests in the hallways, and an inattentive super/owner that was nearly impossible to get ahold of to fix any issues
Advice to owner:
Get a super that responds when there's a problem

Building nice but management will never respond

Former Tenant
Pros:
Quiet and clean building. We never had issues with hot water or water pressure. No bugs or mice.
Cons:
There was a rat problem in the trash alley in the winter. It was eventually handled but was quite bad for some time. The management company will absolutely never respond to your emails. They essentially forced us to pay for a lock that came broken when we moved in because they never responded to our emails about reimbursement. Additionally it took them over a month to fix our broken kitchen appliance and they did not compensate us via rent reduction when we asked.
Advice to owner:
Please be more responsive to your tenants.

Former Tenant
Pros:

Cons:
Bad heating. During winter would get extremely cold in apartment

Less than good

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location, rooftop, decent pest control, easy neighbors, pretty quiet.
Cons:
Management is less than responsive on both minor and major/urgent issues. Heat is nonexistent in the winter. Our neighbors are currently suing the building due to sewage backup into their apartment. Packages are stolen 50% of the time.
Advice to owner:
Treat your tenants with at least some respect/care. Saying there’s “nothing you can do” about heat/hot water issues and packages consistently being stolen (there are no cameras installed in this building) is unacceptable.

Good Amenities, Ghosting Landlord & Supers

Former Tenant
Pros:
Building is pretty quiet overall given the neighborhood. Trash/recycling is regularly cleared out on our floor.
Cons:
We’ve had several issues in the apartment that required attention (broken AC, broken dryer, leaks, etc.) - the landlord and super were okay at getting to our place for emergencies, but other maintenance work or repairs are still unfinished after months of asking. They’ve recently implemented a new maintenance request form, but so far this has not affected how effectively they get repairs done. Also, gym is unusable in my experience (close to trash chute so it smells terrible and is not cleaned regularly if ever).

Completely Unreachable Management

Former Tenant
Pros:
Old and beautiful
Cons:
Management/maintenance are completely unreachable. Mice, roaches, leaking radiators, floor tiles coming up, broken stove, no heat, safety hazard. Management refuses to spend any money or time doing necessary checks to keep tenants safe.
Advice to owner:
Take responsibility for this property and keep people safe. Building inspections URGENTLY needed. Tenants are without HEAT in middle of winter.

Small and overpriced

Former Tenant
Pros:
Great location, not terrible in terms of pests (at least when I was there on the 2nd floor). No real surprises after moving in.
Cons:
Absolutely ridiculously sized “rooms.” Sort of building where they throw up dry wall in a studio and call it a 2 bedroom.

Absolutely terrible to rent from

Former Tenant
Pros:
Jeanette from the leasing office is lovely. Good location and mostly respectful neighbors minus a few bad apples that spoil the bunch.
Cons:
They are completely unreachable and unreliable and do not care if things in their buildings are in need of repair. They simply ignore the issue. The ceiling in the foyer falls off and water leaks in every time it rains and they simply do nothing. Heat and hot water is sporadic. They are rude and condescending when you complain about things they are legally required to fix.
Advice to owner:
Start caring about your buildings and your tenants. Do what you are required to by law.

Nonexistent Super

Former Tenant
Pros:
There are very few pros about this building. The only pro that comes to mind is its lower east side location.
Cons:
Unresponsive management - don’t expect to ever hear back from management, they don’t care about you, they just want your $$. There is no super for the building. There are rats in the trash in the building. Very loud neighbors.
Advice to owner:
Get an in building super! RESPOND TO YOUR TENANTS!

Loved the Apt, Hated Mgmt

Former Tenant
Pros:
I liked the location right by Grand Street and Citi bike stations across the street. Trader Joe’s is really close and you can easily get to Soho on bike or about a 20 min walk. Roof isn’t “allowed” but everyone goes on anyways.
Cons:
Apt was not clean when we moved in, mildew in shower and burnt food on the stove. No one came to clean even after they said they would, I had to scrub the shower myself. Had issues with washing machine on day 1 and it took 2 months to get fixed. I was constantly talking to them, had to call all the time and get information. Turns out it usually is fixed within a few days but they “aren’t sure” why it took so long with me. They have an app where you can submit requests, several times they close your requests without any response. If you want to get something fixed, either do it yourself or expect to call someone higher up. Someone came to fix our ice maker (which never worked, even after the “fix”) and they left trash in the apt and the fridge was moved away from the wall and not pushed back. SMA Equities was the building mgmt- I will avoid any buildings with them as mgmt from now on.
Advice to owner:
Be more responsive. Check the apartments thoroughly before people move in and if something doesn’t work, then fix it
