Pros:

their is a gym. And a laundry. And roof top deck. Maintenance is good and friendly.Doorman building.

Cons:

Heads up. Management/Building quality going down. Numerous times elevator was not working. Also hot water and heat outages. However, management quickly addressed those problems. Project building across street that has had many shootings. Expensive to live in. Significant rent increases.

Pros:

I have really enjoyed living at The Sagamore. There is a gym (always plenty of space, even right before and after work) and laundry for studios that don't have in-unit laundry (very clean, never any line, secure). The building management is incredibly professional and responsive. They host fun events every other month or so, and the maintenance team goes above and beyond! (Seriously!!! They helped us install shelving and hang difficult-to-hang mirrors and wall fixtures for no extra fee.)The neighborhood feels very safe and has lots of fun bars and restaurants. I love being so close to both Central Park and Riverside Park. I can't recommend the building highly enough :)

Pros:

The Sagamore has been the best building I've lived in. The lobby and common areas are kept very clean. The amenities are top notch. There's a gym, a rooftop with a great view, a party room, and a 3rd floor garden (which is being renovated). The building is dog friendly which is a huge plus. The doormen and maintenance guys are fantastic. So friendly and always willing to help out. Before I moved to the Sagamore I wasn't so familiar with the UWS in the high 80's -90's but I've grown to love it. Its a safe and family friendly neighborhood. There are so many great restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks and new ones are popping up all the time. There's a soulcycle and an equinox nearby. Public transportation near The Sagamore is a breeze. Our unit itself is great. We have a one bedroom that feels huge because of the high ceilings, huge windows and dining room nook (which we use as a home office). The kitchen was renovated before we moved in so everything is brand new. The apt is quiet - we rarely hear our neighbors. My favorite part of our apt. is the light! We have huge windows facing east which gives our apt so much light plus the view can't be beat! The only reason we are leaving the Sagamore is because we are moving to CA for work, otherwise we'd be living in this building for years!

Pros:

The Sagamore is one of the best buildings to live in. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the building looks great, the apartments have beautiful new wood flooring and brand new appliances, the kitchen cabinets, counters, and other fixtures are all top of the line.The building has a nice gym with lots of equipment, a beautiful rooftop with a great view of NYC, a patio (currently renovating but looks like it will be very nice when it's finished), a large laundry room, a kids' playroom/daycare, a 24/7 doorman, and a business center (with two decent computers, a free printer, and a shredder). Plus a few times a year they give away treats / breakfast in the lobby or throw parties on the roof.The maintenance staff is very helpful and prompt whether they're fixing something in the apartment or helping you hand something on the wall.Is it expensive? Sure, but if you want to live in a nice doorman building with amenities in this neighborhood, it's actually not that much more expensive than other buildings nearby which don't have nearly as much going for them.

Cons:

Only downside is that it is right on Amsterdam, so people living in apartments near the street will sometimes experience a lot of noise. Overall a very comfortable place to live in a great area.

Pros:

My husband and I have lived in The Sagamore for 6.5 years. We moved here before we were married and since then have gotten married and had a baby. I can't imagine living anywhere else...and we've looked! Nothing on the UWS compares or would meet our needs.The concierge, doormen, maintenance, and management are friendly, helpful, and responsive. The building amenities are such a treat. The roof deck and party room (with it's own private roof deck) are perhaps the primary reason we've stayed in the building. Most building party rooms are dark and lack outdoor space. We use the room every chance we get! Some of the negative reviews reference sirens and construction. We've lived through it...including months of a 7am jackhammer at the school next door. But this is a building in NYC. Any building along Amsterdam Ave will have sirens; EVERY building in NYC will experience construction. Luckily, it doesn't last forever. Perhaps the most special thing about The Sagamore is the effort management makes to build a community. Recently they hosted a S'mores night. During warm months there is weekly yoga in an outdoor garden. My son uses the playroom every day and we've become friends with other families and single residents who live in the building...and have maintained that friendship even when they've moved out! In a city with transplants and transients, The Sagamore feels like home and I can't imagine living anywhere else!

Pros:

A wonderful community to live in - staff and management are fantastic and very responsive. I couldn't imagine living elsewhere in the city as the amenities are great, the apartments are beautiful, and the location is awesome. The pricing isn't great, BUT you get what you pay for. In a good way :-) We even considered moving elsewhere when we went from a 1-bedroom to a 2-bedroom based on rent/cost, but when we looked at comps, there was really no comparison.

Pros:

My husband and I moved from a large co-op to a two bedroom apartment in The Sagamore five years ago, and I have recently moved into a smaller unit here. I cannot say enough about this building. We love it here and now I alone, feel so safe and supported by the staff and the wonderful management, I did not want to live anywhere else. The building is pristine, the sunny views from the apartments, the immediate attention for any request, and the kind and accommodating treatment from management and the 'boys' make it not an apartment for me, it's my home and I couldn't recommend it more.

Pros:

I've lived here for more than 5 years and love it! Went from a one bedroom to a 2 bedroom in the building. The management and doormen are wonderful, as are all of the maintenance crew. There is a feeling of community that is so unusual in NYC. I recently spent time looking for a bigger apartment, since two bedrooms are the largest size at the Sagamore (there may be one 3 bedroom). After a thorough search...I came up with nothing that was comparable in price, size and good vibe. I actually bought myself a murphy bed and now I have all the space I need...I love it here!

Pros:

Choosing to live at The Sagamore was the first good decision I made after deciding to move to NYC 16 years ago. I love the location - easy access to public transportation - a restaurant scene that continues to grow - convenient shopping - a lovely neighborhood garden around the corner - and right between the Hudson River and Central Park. Building staff and management are first rate. Issues are always addressed in a timely manner, and the people are friendly and fun to be around. Building get-togethers have become a welcome part of our community, and the outdoor spaces and party room are usually packed at these events. Bozzuto has improved our lobby, hallways, roof deck and lounge, playroom, gym and laundry room. They will be redesigning the 3rd floor decked garden after maintenance on the exterior is completed. Glad to be here!

From the moment I walked in and was greeted by Chris, I had a great feeling about this building. The lobby and office were beyond pleasant, and the application process was very smooth. The building's cleanliness and design choices are superior to anything in the area. Unfortunately I lost the apartment I was after, but I would recommend this building and the management to anyone interested.

Pros:

Our band The Jokr's (Joe Kris Music) recently performed for the Sagamore at a BBQ event on their rooftop that they threw for the residents. From the second we arrived and needed to load in all of our equipment (drum kit, PA, amps, guitars, etc) to the very end they were the most accommodating and friendly people to work with. The doorman (forgive me, Willson I believe?) was SUPER nice and helpful. He offered us their luggage carts to get everything in from the street and up the elevator. He helped us every step of the way (literally). Rebecca and her fellow staff were outstandingly helpful and accommodating. They made our job performing for the residents so easy. They threw quite the BBQ on their roof. The food was delicious, the view was outstanding, the roof deck (and everywhere else) was spotlessly clean. They constantly were offering us beverages, food, and anything else we might need. The residents we did get to meet and talk with were extremely friendly and seemed to really enjoy living at The Sagamore. Although none of us live there I think we were all in agreement that if we ever planned to move into NYC the first place we would look into living in would be The Sagamore!!!! Hands down a great place to live, no question about it.

We lived at the Sagamore for two years and had an excellent experience. The building management and staff are exceptional. Amenities, including the gym, roof deck, party room, bike room and tenant appreciation events are all great. All maintenance issues are addressed immediately and overall, the building is managed superbly. Nothing but positive things to say about a great rental building in a fantastic UWS neighborhood.

Pros:

This building is absolutely amazing! The doormen are friendly, there are nice amenities, and we didn't see a single bug or rodent the entire year we lived there. They do raise your rent significantly when your lease is up, but on the bright side, the move-out process was so easy. :) They don't try to screw you out of your deposit; in fact, we got our entire deposit back!

Cons:

The downside to living here really is the neighborhood. The sirens are so bad that I had to sleep with earplugs, which I've never had to do before. Also, there may be luxury buildings around, but just take a look at what is immediately surrounding the Sagamore, especially at say 10 PM or so. There was a good amount of police activity at the building across the street, as well as a shooting and a stabbing. There is also currently a rash of robberies targeting school kids in the neighborhood that was all over the news. In summary, do I regret living there-no. Am I glad that I'm no longer living there-definitely. I'm happy that I'm paying significantly less for a bigger apartment in a safer neighborhood right on Central Park.
