Pros:

We have lived here since 2017, and absolutely love the place. Yes, the place is not really a luxury building which offers a gym or a common area, but that is reflected in the pricing as well. They offer water and heat, something that not all buildings offer. The location is a big big plus. You cant get any better than that. (Just imagine the most expensive property in NYC is just one street & one block away). I like it. Would live here again (if I had not re-located).

Cons:

Overpriced. Found few apartments nearby with lower price. will be moving out. - It was advertised as a luxury building but given the facility (no gym, no common area, etc), i think this is more to justify their above market pricing. You will find better value elsewhere. - No apartment maintenance at night, outdated interiors, single pane window, frequent issues with elevator, toilet. our apartment is 1 BR not directly facing the street but still very noisy.- They use a building link application which is good..but they recently blocked the function for tenant to add new interaction to the front desk. so what is this application for? - Some of the doormen are very rude. They are rude both to us and to our guests, leaving bad impressions and embarassments. They questioned our guests as though they were intruder but frequently left the front desk with the door open....like they care about security LoL!

Pros:

Between my husband and I, we have collectively been residents of Carnegie Mews for 5 years and are about to extend to our 6th year. We have been very happy with the service, convenience, and quality of life in this building. To make it really simple, here are the basic pros and cons of living here:Pros:- Great super, doormen, and porters who are responsive and helpful. I've put work orders in and have had them responded to within between minutes to a few hours, depending on the need. - For the price, you get more space than other apartments in the neighborhood, including great closet space and actual usable space (versus weird hallways and entrances that aren't actually able to be utilized)- Amazing location- you are literally steps from the NQR1ACEBDF and the M57 and M31 - I'm not sure where else in the city you can get east, north, or south so quickly and conveniently. This is particularly convenient when you have roommates or partners who work on opposite ends of the city- Clean, well kept building- Someone is always washing, vacuuming, etc. - The new laundry room is a great improvement- Very safe area, building

Cons:

Cons- - The walls can be a little thin, so loud neighbors have potential to be an issue, but people are respectful and quiet for the most part. The building is mostly working 20s and 30s who keep to themselves- The elevators do break down every 4-5 months, but they are usually back up within a few days. During these periods, the wait time can suck, but I have heard the same complaint from every single friend of mine who lives in an apt building in NYC. The building is also pretty good about letting you use the service elevator during these periods- It's not a luxury building- you aren't going to have a gym, pool, fancy common space, or beautiful rooftop. You can use the roof if you bring up your own chairs and sit out. You used to be able to watch the fireworks or ball drop, but this is no longer allowed- Prices are increased fairly steeply from year to year, so if you think you'd want to stay for 2 years, take the 2 year lease. It's a much better deal.- For me, people keeping to themselves was a con. I would like a little more of a community feel and wish that the management company would help organize it so that neighbors could get to know each other

Cons:

We're moving out, there are mice everywhere. They came and put some poison, but the mice died between walls and now the apartment reaks. We received a renewal lease with an increase in rent, but we're not interested.
