Cons:

I would not recommend living here. 1. I'd estimate that 20% of the apartments are corporate - that is, transient tenants staying for a short time. That causes security issues, not to mention the lobby often looks like a messy hotel lobby. 2. The doormen are, for the most part, pretty rude. Some of them (I won't name them, but I probably should) are the rudest I have ever dealt with. With the exception of Senad, who is a fantastic human being, the others just couldn't care less. 3. They won't let delivery folks come up to your apartment. This is just a deal breaker for me.4. They won't accept fresh direct deliveries. That is another deal breaker for me.5. The gym/pool (which costs over $1,000 per year) has ridiculous hours, that is, they close at 3pm on Fridays, which is the only day folks generally get off work at a more decent hour. They also close the pool during your lunch break. 6. There are other buildings in the area which are newer and are better managed that cost between 3-6% less. Do your homework.

Rudest doorman I ever ever seen! I wasn't live in here, but I knew somebody lives in the building. One day, she left something in my place asked me to leave it in downstair, said she will come down and pick it up. So when I entered the building, asked about to drop something in the front desk, 2 people who work in the front said no, " nobody will pick it up, you need to bring it up." I said I gotta get back to work, have no time to go to 19 floor, they said, " you will be all-right! Just take the elevator goes up!" Are you fuxking kidding me?! That's the way how you talk to people while you work in a apartment building?

Pros:

I lived in Symphony house for about 2 years and had a great time. Here is the breakdown of my review:Building: The lobby has an elegant decor decor. The amenities include 24 hour concierge and doorman. I felt safe living here. The concierge is extremely helpful and the doormen are very welcoming. There is the exception of one doorman who could smile more - but he is not a bad guy. In fact, he may just help you out when you least expect it. Apartment: My apartment was on 41st floor. It was spacious for a Manhattan apartment with 3 walk-in closets. I had a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. My apartment came with a balcony and I had a nice view of fireworks on 4th of July (great perk!)Laundry: There is laundry room on every floor. There are 2 washers and dryers for the entire floor. Sometimes I would have to wait to get a machine but I never really became a big problem. Location: Symphony house is in close proximity to all the cool NYC attractions. I was able to walk every where. This area is always busy which made me feel safe walking around at night. Noise: Very noisy neighborhood, there is a constant noise from ambulances, police cars, people etc. However, the noise did not interrupt my sleep but it maybe a problem for light sleepers. This is something you definitely adapt to overtime. However, you will probably notice it the first few days.
