You can hear your neighbors at all times of the day (For god's sake, I don't want to hear you having sex). My real problem is the lack of heat in this apartment. A lot of neighbors, including me, have noticed that the heat is only… See More

The Manager is never in the office and almost never passes on work requests to maintanence. So to get something like say your HEAT fixed you have to hope to catch the engineer in the hall. There are rampant mice problems and we never get notices… See More
