Reviews

Nice but mice

Former Tenant
Pros:
Nice place generally, well managed, and great location
Cons:
At least a few mice live here, too, and the buses on Broadway are surprisingly loud if your bedroom faces that direction—you know that beeping they do when they stop? It’s louder than you think and continues all night, and it will keep you awake even from 4 or 5 flights up.
Advice to owner:
Improve the windows facing broadway for soundproofing; check into a likely infestation of mice in one or more apartment’s

Not a safe place to live

Former Tenant
Pros:
The apartments in the back are quiet and light
Cons:
- There is a lot of crime in the building such as stolen deliveries and the landlord refuses to take any measures such as blinding the front doors or installing cameras.
Advice to owner:
- Make this a safe building

You'll never hear from them until they want to raise the rent

Former Tenant
Pros:
Location, that's about it.
Cons:
First off, you will never get an email response back. I emailed them multiple times over the course of my time in the building and didn't hear from the landlord once until he tried to raise my rent by $900. The walls are paper thin, you can hear whole conversations.
Advice to owner:
Respond to emails?
