Actually a great place to live

After seeing the negative reviews, I have to say that I feel exactly opposite. And, no, I am not management, I am a renter, and half been for over a year now. Truths: Yes, the parking a under the building and anyone can walk in. But, it is lighted, and we have never seen anyone shady in or around the cars, and have never once seen cops responding to a break-in. Yes, the front doors can be propped out, and those with dogs often do prop the front building doors open, negating the security feature of them. Yes, the street noise on Warren can be a bit much at first. You can hear the 36 bus coming down, trash trucks at 6-7am, the motorcycles going up...they really just need to upgrade the street-facing windows. Yes, occasionally you hear people talking in the hall, but it is rare on my floor. Can't speak for other floors. Why I like it: The management for the past year has been VERY responsive, very courteous, and very helpful. I have never had a problem with them or anyone on their staff. Maintenance has been swift and good. The building is off the main drag, and I have never seen anyone loitering about, nor have I seen "shady" people walking up and down the street. No one has any business walking up our street unless they live there, and frankly, the hill is pretty steep so it's not like people walk up it unless they really have to. One of the bets parts is the lobby freebies. I have found so much good free stuff left in the lobbies by tenants that it makes it hard to move. I mean it, seriously good stuff like IKEA furniture, DVD players, printers... The community garden is right next door...the pumpkin patch...the Christmas tree lot...4 bus stops for 3 bus lines...all less than 100 yards from my door. I have my pick of over 15 washing machines, so it is rare that i have to wait. And the company that maintains then is pretty quick about cleaning and repairs. The walls are thick! I can hear the people above me when they run around, but it is rare. I never hear my neighbors' TV or stereo, and can barely hear their dog bark. I recommend living here. I think a lot of the reviews are from trust-fund kids going to school and having to downgrade from their parents' 7,000 sq foot house in the hills, not used to apartment life. This is the best apartment I have ever lived, I have lived all up and down the Peninsula in over a dozen places.
