Pros:

Going over to "Columbus Court" south from W 100th Street is upscale shopping strip (Whole Foods, etc). Rite Aid at 97th and Columbus ( usually awful line problem). CVS Pharmacy over at 96th and Amsterdam. Ha ha place changes all the time ( I mean, pharmacy)-- typical CVS store, big. More shops over on Broadway,The Better or Really Best Newa: Actually, some architect did a really good job of redoing tenements here oh 1980's someone told me who has been here in this area forever-- Four buildings left, after they took some other od ones down ( totally rebiuilt- very nice kitchens and very nice bathrooms, modular-- all apts ( nice studios do to I think 3 bedroom) in all four bldgs have same cabinets etc for instance -dark brown wood plastic composite-- looks good indeed if you put in a new "warm" fluorescent light. Beautiful sloping park courtyard in center with winding paths, patio areas ( some good lanscape architect did this. Well kept. Place as whole is well kept. Only problems they have are with boilers-- just got new hot water one here but had to wait. Good laundry rooms in cellar but have to keep after the people who own the machines fo service them. The are card operated- buy cards in Management Office. Right now Building Mgr excellent guy and great asssitant. No guarantee how long they will be here,... Super & asst very efficient. OH YES GATED COM MUNITY 24 HOUR GATE GUARDS AND SECURITY. KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. Whole area well lit at night, security cameras around...They have emergency service line too for various apt problems.Have no idea of waiting list status now. Cal 212 864 7111. Also check online.I am really happy here. When I think of alternatives- wow, cannot get any better for what it is!

Cons:

This is Section 8 Housing. Let me tell you the Bad News first, because it may be more than you can handle.This is very mixed, sort of chaotic area. Rigt off Central Park West ( cool!) and near subway staion at 103 St. B and C trains, this station ONLY uptown. Downtown have to go to 96th and Central Park West. Other 1,2,3 Trains at Bway and 96th; 1 Train at Bway abd 103 ( don;t use this station at night)). Problem #1: Dreaded NYCHA F. Douglass houses is right across Manhattan Ave, which is in the territory of city newly recognized Manhattan gang. Mitigating: this side o Douglass down here is not that bad, but area gets spooky after dark. Weird people lurking about!!. Obviously open drug deals maybe during day too ( I always avoid Manhattan Ave.)Closest shopping is on West 100th Street, just a few shops and nice little Associated Supermarket, a couple of delis. Little odd Chinese restaurant...pet grooming place still there I think...one or two others.
