641 West Aldine
Resident · 2017 - 2018
You live here if you want to save money or you can't really afford more. Either way, you get what you pay for. Units are very small, but satisfactory. Thin walls can make for long, loud nights and hit-or-miss radiators can leave you freezing cold in the middle of the night. Plumbing is old and leaky, but the main issues are with safety. The front door intercom and key have were out-of-commission for months on end. The front door sticks open, and non-residents frequently enter. I've twice seen homeless persons sleeping in the lobby and stairwell. DO NOT ship packages here; they will be stolen. Multiple residents have reached out to management, who are overall nice but lacking in action and motivation. Maintenance staff overall doesn't care. I've had overflowing sinks on Saturday afternoon and was told by the maintenance person it's not an emergency so I shouldn't have called. Scheduled appointments aren't really more than kind suggestions of the day they'll show up. It's decent value; though there are sacrifices. The safety issue makes this a no-go for me.
