The doormen are great (namely Mustafa and Lubna).
The other tenants are noisy, rude, filthy, and disrespectful. Management does nothing to address this. The smell of dog piss in front of the building is overwhelming. The new construction zone leaves their lights on all day and night across the street, which sears through the flimsy blinds. I terminated my lease early because management greedily continued to expect full rent despite corona. I do not recommend this building; it will be mostly vacant when the market crashes.

convenient location, large windows
Workers broke into our apartment without our consent to do non-agreed and non-emergency repairs during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is clearly against NYC Public Service Law #228. We told them many times in documented emails and phone calls that we do not want them to enter our apartment and endanger the health and lives of our very young children. We immediately vacated the premises, but still have to pay the full rent. There were confirmed virus infections in Westmont, and the workers visit many apartments, so the administration and superintendent willfully and negligently took actions that possibly exposed us to the virus and endangered our health. We do not feel safe to return to Westmont given their aggressive and unconscionable behavior.

I can guarantee you all of the 5 star review below are from Equity Residential and building employees, I know for a fact the building made them go online and amp up the social media presence to draw in new tenants. The building even asked us to rate them online after signing the agreements. Glad we waited a bit to see how it really was.
Stay far far away from this place. It is run by a large corporation that only cares about numbers and not about you, or us, or anyone else living here.
If you do decide to live here, stay away from the 2nd avenue side or prepare to be up all night with people yelling in the street and cars honking. The balcony is beautiful but an absolute waste unless you are above the 20th floor.
The second you sign on the dotted line you become nothing more than a number and dollar value. Mgmt all the way up will not give any respect or make you feel like this is a place called home. I have lived on the Upper East Side for 8 years, 2 of them in this building and can say this is the worst experience I have ever had by far. Lobby construction started and went over estimated completion by 6 months, no remorse from anyone at all. Mgmt is trying to jack up the cost by over 200$/mo after having to deal with the construction and with the known future projects.
Like I said, everyone in this building hates it. The leasing office doesn't respond back, the mgmt team doesn't respond back, even the corporate team who I was instructed to contact about my concerns DOESN'T RESPOND BACK. There are so many other buildings near by that will treat you with dignity and respect and value the fact that you chose to live with them. This place will not! You may be thinking hmm, this guy is over reacting, but I guarantee you in 6 months you say WOW, I should have listened.

I am one of the original tenants of this building and have lived here for 8 years. I moved in as a college student at NYU and have been there ever since because there is truly no better place to live. There are a lot of beautiful apartment buildings with 5 star amenities in New York City (which this building is without a doubt - take a look at the rooftop Cloud Lounge and floor to ceiling windows with unobstructed views in every single apartment and you will see why) but what sets The Beatrice apart is the staff. The doorman, porters, handymen and leasing agents are more than friends, they are family. No matter what request I have asked of them, the answer has never once been "no" and they have gone out of their way to accommodate me with a huge smile on their face. I often feel like it's tough to feel settled and "at home" in the fast paced cut throat city that is New York but The Beatrice drowns out all the noise (remember you're high up enough to not hear anything) and makes you feel relaxed and at home. I am moving to Los Angeles at the end of the month and will miss everyone terribly but I am leaving this review so you can do yourself a favor and sign up to become a part of the Beatrice family and have the same amazing experience I did. Oh, and once you get there, make sure to introduce yourself to Hendrick Fernandez, General Manager. He is as good as it gets!

We have lived here for one year now and quickly renewed our lease. There is nothing like this location. And considering the rent for this block, it is reasonable.The staff are wonderful! Elvin is always eager to lend a hand at the door and Selena and all the others as well. When I had a drain issue, Ziggy was right At the door. The laundry facilities are are clean. We feel very safe in this neighborhood and can't imagine living anywhere else in NYC.

I've lived here going on 3 years, and it is absolutely one of the best living situations NYC can offer a renter. Office staff is easy to work with; doormen and women are not only professional, but personable. And lets not forget that this building is beautiful and in what is soon to be NYC's new Chelsea.
