Years at this apartment: 1998 - 2002
I lived at Pastures from 1998-2002, and worked there the first half of that time. The owner at the time was a cheap skate, and it showed. He was later in the news on charges of fraud when he sold the apartments to a local guy named Aaron Dare. Dare sole them to someone else. Maintenance suffered when I was there, even when I was an employee. We did so much repair in that apartment that we never should have done as tenants. I won't know who owns it now, but it's just too big of a section (4 blocks of brownstones) to really keep up anything good. Even the HOA in the area doesn't take care of the property like they used to. It's horrible down there. Just as it was making an upswing, it got pissed on again. Don't live there. The "charm" wears off quickly with high heating and A/C bills, no real maintenance, and crappy HOA snow removal. And yes, they tow at a whim over there, for NO reason.
