Cons:

There are 3 things that you learn very fast after you move in this building 1) You learn to buy good quality ear plugs. The fire station one block away on 18th st and Broadway, the trash trucks that take hours in the middle of the night (and I am not exaggerating; near the OLD Town bar on 18th st is the service entrance for the office building on Park avenue), the ambulances going to the Beth Israel hospital on 1st avenue and the noises the heat pipes make in winter months (that is much louder than anything you heard I can assure you) is enough to mess with your sleep. 2) You need to buy an electric heater: the landlord waits until the tenants start complaining to 311 before he turns the heat on, and then the boiler brakes during winter. Check how many complains they have with the city from the tenants regarding lack of heat 3) The management and the super are great at talking a great game but watch their actions and see how long everything takes.....I am sure by now you might think I am exaggerating a little bit so please allow me to describe my experience for the last 3 days. Based on NYC law the heat should be turned in the apartments if needed on October 1st. This passing weekend (October 17th +18th) we had a cold weekend with weather in the 40's but the heat was still NOT on. So I had to keep my stove and heater on the entire weekend. When I got home yesterday (Monday) I was so excited: the heat was on... Alleluia... My excitement was very short lived when I realized there is NO HOT water. And I mean not even a drop of water was coming on the hot water pipeline. Anyway not the end of the world, I said to myself, I don't need to shower at night I can shower in the morning. When I woke up in the morning the hot water didn't come back. ..... Shockingly that did not surprise me, I live in the building long enough to know to include in my plans to wake up a little bit earlier just in case this happens... I patiently warmed water on the stove and ... you can imagine the rest...... The part that shocked me though was when I left the apartment: the elevator was down!!! I am curious how many days are going to take them to fix it... Luckily, and I am saying this with a lot of sarcasm, the building has only 9 floors and a little exercise didn't hurt anyone... Yes you to pay for the elevator and for the heat and for all the wonderful things you do not get in this building.
